    Javascript Menu Not Working

    I have a DHTML menu that I created on a site that shows a submenu when you hover over the main navigation.

    Everything seems to work fine except when you view the site in I.E. on a Mac. The subnavigation does not show up. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    derrick

    People still use I.E. on Mac?

    I stopped supporting that the same time Microsoft did.

    Maybe just disable it for that browser, as long as they can still get around the site. They're probably used to things not working quite right if they use that old s***box of a browser.

    Thanks for the feedback. Do you know if there would be issues with js scripts working in Safari or firefox?

    I'm no javascript guru, but from what I know there's a handful of small issues on just about every browser. I'm having problems with a script in firefox at the moment.

    You should probably test on everything you would expect your visitors to use.

    Thanks. Do you think the problems are script related or doctype?

    Script related. I would think that doctype doesn't affect javascript too much, (Although it would affect the DOM indirectly)

    The problem as I understand it lies in the fact that each browser has their own javascript engine, and so each one understands the code a little bit differently.

    I found an article that might help you understand cross browser js issues a little bit better.
