Word wrapping on MAC in IE?

I got my version from dynamic drive.... ... /index.htm

Is this an older version of the script?

The word's "What's New" and "Tech Info" in the NavBar wrap in the MAC in Explorer??

Stay away from dynamic drive.

You got 3.3.19, while the current version in the v3 series is 3.5.15. That puts you literally 20-some versions down level. Always get your downloads here.

Move up to v5, in RC stage right now, but very stable and due (hopefully) to be released in just days. You'll need to re-write a few things, but it won't take you long and you'll be up-to-daye. See

Can I copy my old menu.htm file and will all my settings take etc. so I don't have to rebuild it all again?
How does this work?

If you're going to move from v3 to v5 - yes, you cannot :!:

Sorry, it's Monday. No, the arrays in v3 and v5 and completely different. They will have to be done again. However, you will be picking up the numerous benefits of a great new system, so, to me, it would be well worth it.

In the new version 5........ I didn't see anywhere in the code where there is a fade or opacity?

The old version had this in the code....

effect = "Fade(duration=0.2);Alpha(style=0,opacity=88);Shadow(color='#777777', Direction=135, Strength=5)"

Where is it in the new version?

It is my understanding that the filter item is in v5. Looking at some of Andy's demos I see filter =..., however in those I looked at it is commented out (//). However, that doesn't mean it's not there. Why not take a shot at something like...
filter = "fade(duration=0.2)";

...or whatever.

So it's called "filter" instead of "effect" now?
Will the opacity and shadow work as well in that string?

Actually they always were really 'filters', given that Andy's demo page is filters_sample.php. You could have called 'effect' anything you wanted, just so you changed the name in the menu area as well.

I suspect the operative answer to that is 'try it' :!: :D

See the OVERFILTER option of a menu described in this post below. Look at the alpha and shadow options that are used as examples.

You would put that line in each menu's declaration as in...
overfilter = "Alpha(style=0,opacity=70);Shadow(color='#666666', Direction=135, Strength=4)";

It's also woth noting that version 5 also supports an "outfilter" property (which v3 lacked). "overflter" is applied to a menu when it opens. "outfilter" is applied when it closes. Pretty cool actually. If you intend to use the same filters for every submenu, you could define them in strings, e.g. over_filter = "Fade(..." and "out_filter" = "randomdisolve(...". Then assign these strings to the appropriate filter properties in the menu definition, e.g., overfilter=over_filter. Saves a lot of typing that way, and is easier to test and modify. Plus, you could assign the strings based on conditionals; e.g., making them null for browsers that don't support such effects, or reducing the number of effects to one for browsers that don't combine multiples (like IE5).
