    Navigation problems

    Hi pixelstation,

    I seem to be having a similar issue and looking at it for a few days just make me see matrix code!

    Nonetheless, after many problems with file I've resulted to using js for the nav. It works fine in FF (fabulous! as always!!) but IE as usual has it's flaw.

    Below is my css. If anyone can help! please please please let me know what I'm doing wrong!

    #mainpanel #mainarea #menu ul {
        list-style-type: none;
        margin: 0px;
        width: 150px;
        padding-top: 0px;
        padding-right: 0px;
        padding-bottom: 0px;
        padding-left: 0px;
        border-top-width: 1px;
        border-right-width: 1px;
        border-bottom-width: 1px;
        border-left-width: 1px;
        border-top-style: none;
        border-right-style: solid;

    We'll need the html and javascript you are using as the issue could be anywhere.

    You don't seem to be using the usual suckerfish menu js as I can't see the ie hover styles.

    Not only that, but what does the HTML look like? There's a lot of CSS code in there, a lot of which probably isn't doing anything productive (or useful).
