Okay...Im working on a project where we have a breadcrumb trail at the top of the page, with a drop down menu that lets you see other areas within your section.

The problem being the client browser requirements are IE5 and Netscape 6. The drop downs I have built work fine in IE, but not in Netscape.

Attached is a zip file with my code, style sheets etc. It would have been too confusing to post it via text. If anyone can help out, much thanks in advance!

css dropdowns and netscape

ok heres the thing.
you can get the dropdown to work if your good with javascript.
the thing is that ie and netscape use different codes for css and javascript.
the way to fix it is to go into the code and make a copy of everything and make it netscape compliant or do what i did and forget about it and make a flash page telling people to use ie for the page to comeout right.
hope i helped

IE5, Netscape 6 and CSS Controlled Drop Down Menu

if a site told me that I had to use a flash enabled browser to navigate i'd leave the site....

just my opinion as an end-user =)

IE5, Netscape 6 and CSS Controlled Drop Down Menu

Im with ya on that one. I dont like the idea of Flash menus and since this is being used on a Corp site with standards of IE6 and Net7 + I need to stick to DHTML or something else.

But thanks for the input!
