Hi,
I hope someone can help me with this. I have tried to put in a Spry menu bar drop down

http://www.sharkbite.ca/sharktestsites/pierobon-site/furniture-menutest.html

and I am almost there but I have a few issues I cannot correct.

1. I would like the whole menu to float right, when I make it float right, the menu reads from right to left.

2. I would like the text in the drop downs to be white with a black rollover

That's it for now.

Thanks.

Thanks for that. It did work except in MS Explorer on the PC, the drop downs don't go down, the go horizontal? Any ideas?

Thanks

spry menu

There are still conflicts between the javascript, html id's and css. I can't help you find all of them. At this point I would suggest you kindly place dreamweaver in your recycle bin. It is obvious you have out grown it and are now trying to do real coding. Sorry to be so harsh.

There are many drop down menu examples on this forum. Try a different approach.

The dropdowns in IE are created using javascript since IE doesn't support the li:hover. A common method for doing this is to create a temporary iframe by modifying the javascript code on the fly. This is similar to an old (remember BASIC) command called ALTER. What you are seeing in IE is remnants of the iframes that did not work in the spry.js.

Well that is a bit harsh. I did manage to fix it within Dreamweaver, thanks, but if you know of a better way that you would recommend, I would love to know about it.

Thanks.
