Works in IE & Opera, but not in Mozilla (Netscape/AOL)

Poster: barad

I have a simple menu that I'm trying to insert in the left hand column of OSC (Open Source Commerce - formally known as TEP). The code is simple (see below for details of the menu_array.js file) and I just changed the array values from the sample code.

When I insert it, it doesn't show up at all (i.e. it's in the source, but not rendered) in Mozilla (and therefore, I assume Netscape/AOL).

Suggestions? Does Mozilla have trouble with this inside of a table? I think that the left hand column might be constructed from a table... no?
