Vertical menu not working on Mac

Poster: pcole

I have a vertical menu on my page. Works great everywhere, except submenus won't open on any Mac I have tried. It must be something with my array but, darned if I can figure it out.

Can anyone help?

Here is the array:

//The following line is critical for menu operation, and MUST APPEAR ONLY ONCE. If you have more than one menu_array.js file rem out this line in subsequent files
menunum=0;menus=new Array();_d=document;function addmenu(){menunum++;menus[menunum]=menu;}function dumpmenus(){mt="<script language=javascript>";for(a=1;a<menus.length;a++){mt+=" menu"+a+"=menus["+a+"];"}mt+="<\/script>";_d.write(mt)}
//Please leave the above line intact. The above also needs to be enabled if it not already enabled unless this file is part of a multi pack.

// Editable properties START here //

// Special effect string for IE5.5 or above please visit for more filters
if(navigator.appVersion.indexOf("MSIE 6.0")>0)
effect = "Fade(duration=0.5);Alpha(style=0,opacity=88);Shadow(color='#000000', Direction=135, Strength=5)"
effect = "Shadow(color='#777777', Direction=135, Strength=5)" // Stop IE5.5 bug when using more than one filter

timegap=500 // The time delay for menus to remain visible
followspeed=5 // Follow Scrolling speed
followrate=40 // Follow Scrolling Rate
suboffset_top=10; // Sub menu offset Top position
suboffset_left=10; // Sub menu offset Left position

style1=[ // style1 is an array of properties. You can have as many property arrays as you need. This means that menus can have their own style.
