    image map and netscape 6

    hmmm, I have an odd problem. The tabbed nav is an image map I generated in Fireworks:

    For some reason that I can't get, it doesn't work in Netscape 6. Anyone know why? Thanks!

    no time to test, but: i do recall netscape being very finicky about the order in which coordinates are entered, and map elements are ordered. try turning the map around, so that in the code it goes from the left-most to the right-most area. also, that the coordinate pairs go clockwise (starting with the top-left-most pair).

    Thanks for the tip. I rearranged the order. Alas it still won't work. On the plus side I now know why: the menu is absolutely positioned, and it top: -29px. It is the negative value that broke it. If it's a positive number the links work. Unfortunately, if I position it absolutely from the top, rather than in relation to the container div as I have currently, it is not consistent b/w NS and IE, it's a few pixels off. So I guess for the time being all take the lesser evil of it being broken in NS 6.

    again no time to test, but: how about, instead of doing top: -29px, try bottom: 0. this should tell the .menu to be flush to the bottom of the parent div (as the .bar has been set to position: relative, this will be the .menu's point of reference).

    does that make sense ?

    not sure why, but with bottom: 0, the mouse over is still broken in NS6.

    ok, I remembered a hack that seems to have relieved the problem:
    .menu {
    position: absolute;
    top: 51px;
    right: 1px;
    margin:0;
    padding: 0;
    }
    * html .menu {
    position: absolute;
    top: 54px;
    right: 1px;
    }

    Now the menu is positioned from the top in positive values so the mouseover works and the second rule only ie reads so it is positioned correctly in IE or NS.
