Menu Load from within a table

I currently run a menu within a table.

The problem is when my page loads, the menu bar loads first. Since the page takes a second or two load, all you see is the menu bar (in the upper left corner as opposed to the middle where it is placed). Once the page loads, the menu is in the right place and everything is fine.

I notice that the sample menus don't have this issue. I've tried placing the script load code in various places. I think the recommendation is in <HEAD>, but I've put it right where it is to execute and also in the beginning of <BODY>, but I get the same thing.

Any suggestions?

A URL is always most helpful so we can see exactly what is going on (and also look at your array file).

Found this browing around in the forum items :
When loading the menu in a table cell the menu is loaded at the default
position defined in the array file and then snaps to the table cell last.
The trick then is to set the top and left coordinates to negative numbers
so the menu starts loading well off screen.
The illusion is that the menu just appears in place instead of
jumping since you can't see it in the original off page location.

Maybe this will answer your question ?
