Vertical positioning on dropdown menus bound to cell

Hi there,

I'm experimenting with Milonic's dropdown menu array bound to several cells/images in a horizontal table. Why? The page layout is set to center in the browser window, which works in IE and NN 4.X, but not NN 6 and I can't make pixel placement predictions for 3rd party views.

After finally getting the menus to display, I'm left with two issues...

1) I can't seem to adjust the vertical placement of the menus, which need to start at 120 pixels from the top of the page...or 15 pixels from the top of the cell. I tried adjusting the MenuTop variable, but it has no effect.

2) Once I bind the menus to the cells in a 15px high row/table, the row doubles height in IE on publish...though it published correctly prior to adding the PlaceMenu code. NN 7 displays the proper row height--go figure. (How it's coded now is the only way I've been able to get it to display/get around issues with NOF 5.x code placement & generation.)

Does any one have any recommendations? I'm stumped.

Hot dog...problem solved...kinda. It didn't occur to me that I could split the PlaceMenu and mouseover/popup code in different cells.

Sorta Solution - two rows...mouseover code on top row with image, PlaceMenu code in second row cell beneath image. No mystery row height expansion in IE6. 1 px expansion in NN7, and maybe 10 px on NN 4.76 (though dropdowns still won't show in 4.x)

Like your website layout.
Tell me how you made your verticle drop down menus?

I'm working on creating a new look entirely to my church website.
