Opera Not Placing Menu Correctly

Tearing my hair out! The menu looks great with IE and Mozilla, but for some reason Opera doesn't seem to be reading the "Menu Top" and "Menu Left" positions and places it at the top, left corner of the screen.

Mozilla, Netscape 7.0 and IE 6.0 on Windows XP.. this menu looks great.

But Opera it is off centered.

Well.. considering"

1) This menu is awesome
2) This menu is potentially free
3) The guy who wrote it put some time into it
4) Opera is like 4-6% of the browsing population

Screw Opera. It also keeps looping my Flash movie when I cleared saved it not to loop. Mozilla, Netscape and IE all respect this fact. Opera doesn't. They are taking lessons from M$.

I use Opera and I had to make sure that the margins of my pages were all set to zero. I mean the "htm" page properties in the "body" statement

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">

I checked.. my margins are all set to 0 (zero).

It's not that it doesn't line up on the side.. that is fine. It's that the vertical spacing is off. But looks fine in the other browsers.

Of course, there's the plaguing fact that the menu goes behind the Flash on my page.. which I fixed with IE thanks to the many posts in this forum.

I hope Macromedia somehow puts out a fix or something.

Feel free to check it out..

Apparently it went from a standard site to Best Viewed with IE.. Microsoft has controlled me again...

Your suggestions are much appreciated.

I viewed your web site using Opera 6.05 and the menu appears to be in the correct position. I did notice that the menu item under "Marc Speaks" stayed hidden behind the moving clouds. But, the menu was not position at the upper left corner, it was directly below your top banner.

Looks good in Opera?

I'll take your word for it. I've got Opera 6.0 at home. 1024x768... But I viewed the site in 800x600.. didn't look that good. But if you saw differently then I do feel better.

The menu behind the moving clouds is a DHTML and Flash thing. Macromedia has an article about it. It is fixed in IE but Netscape and others.. there's nothing I can do at time about it.

Possibly it will be fixed in the next verison of the menu.. maybe not. But in IE it works great.

Thanks for taking a look.
