Menu Placement - Right in IE wrong everywhere else

I know this is something obvious but I haven't been able to figure it out or found an answer in other posts. My site: looks ok in IE but in Mozilla or Opera, for example, the menu is slightly above where it is supposed to be and/or not showing the full border.

Help - I'm so stumped!! :?

Hi Jam,

The border problem is caused by an incorrect color code for high3dcolor in your style1 menu style; you have high3dcolor set to "#00000" -- I'm assuming that you want another 0 in there to make it black. If both high3dcolor and low3dcolor are set to the same value (black in this case), then you really aren't using the 3d option, so a better approach might be simply to remove these two settings from the style.

The position problem does not appear to be caused by any menu-related code. I looked at your main page in ie6, ns7, op6, op7, and moz1 -- both locally and on your site -- and the menu's top border is at 79px in all of these browsers, exactly where you set it with top=79 in your mainmenu definition. I have to conclude that the positioning problem is therefore related to something else on the page. The only real problem with the browsers I used to test appeared in the Operas (6 and 7), where your static link menu peeks out below the Milonic menu (I assume your goal is to cover the static menu with the Milonic menu). So, it's an opera positioning problem related to what?... css? your 1px transparent gif spacer? table spacing?... A different approach might be to place the static menu inside a <noscript> tag, so that it will not render if the Milonic menu is in use, but will render if the user has javascript disabled.

Hope that helps,

Hmmm - they were 1 "w" short in the posted URL, too. Wonder if that's significant... :?: :)

Thank you!

Well first off it does appear I'm one "O" short of a full basket ;) second I redid the menu entirely and my inconsistencies seemed to go away. I think I had orignally combined some scripting for the horizontal menu and the 100% width menu.

In any case I think it's fixed and looks good. I thank you both for such speedy and helpful replies!!
