Annying little (difficult?) question, help please :)

I have my menu working fine in a frameset at (no www.). But there is one annoying flaw that I cannot get rid of.

Example (hopes it makes sense):

1. I move the mouse over 'Diverse' ín the main menu in the top frame.
2. I scroll down into the submenu in the buttom frame and chose 'Links'
3. I once again move the mouse into the main menu in the top frame (WITHOUT crossing over 'Diverse') and chose another item (eg. 'Familie').

The mouseover effect does NOT disappear over 'Diverse' and two menu items now have the crossover effect (Dark Grey) :(

I can repeat this and get the mouseover effect to stay over the entire main menu.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this, I have tried everything I could think of, but nothing works.

Please help

Try moving your menu calls out of the <head> and into the <body>.

I've run through your _array files and couldn't find any cause !
Moving the menu calls didn't solved the symptom(s).
I'am using IE6 and Win2000Pro..

Is this a IE6 related bug Andy ??

Does the symptoms also occur in Netscape or other IE versions ?
Can someone test this out please ?

Fails the same in NS4.79, NS7, and IE6, so I would tend to think it's not a browser-related problem.

I compared the code to the 'frames based menu' example - where the problem doesn't exist, but I couldn't find any errors, very weird. If someone figures out the problem, I would be truly grateful ! Thanks for the help so far :)

Well, I solved the problem...

I switched back to v. 3.5.05 and now everything works perfect.

Could this be a bug?

Whether it's a bug or not I really can't tell you. However, my suggestion would be if you're not having any of the problems fixed by 3.5.06 and 3.5.07 I'd just sit tight with it until Andy gets 4 released. This way he won't have to take extra time on your problem if it's really not a problem, and can concentrate on 4. Not trying to put you off, just help out.

Make any sense (I'm tired!)?

I will stick with 3.5.05 :)

When will 4.0 be out (appr.)?

Andy is trying for "spring". However, I don't recall him mentioning a particular year...
