Weird shadowing

Poster: Andy
Dated: Tuesday March 12 2002 - 17:55:42 GMT

Has anyone else experienced this problem.

I have a menu setup on the following test site and in IE5.5(and up)/Win2k the shadowing shows up as lower-right (as set in the effect line for direction=135) however in my home system IE5.5/Win98 the shadowing effect appears to the lower-left no matter what I set the direction to int he effect statement.

Site is

Not that is is "that much" of a problem, but the dropshadow on the submenus covers text from the parent menu and it is esthetically unpleasing.

Don't have another Win98 machine that I can check it agains to see if it is something with my box or the browser/os problem.

Any input is always welcome.

Sorry but I have been unable to reproduce this issue. Are you still experiencing it? Has anyone else been able to reproduce this?

Thanks for at least taking a look to see, must be something quirky on my side. Thats the only machine that I've been on that it does it on.

I could send you a screen shot, and a description of the system (OS/browser/hardware,etc.) .

Its not that big an issue, and since noone else seems to be able to reproduce it or has had the problem, I'm resolved that it is something on my side.


BTW - Andy, we (Riverdale FD) have gotten nothing but compliments about our new site since we started using your menu. Thank You!
