when i want top use the Static HTML Object Based Menu Sample it works, but if i try it on my own websites it doesn't work.
Here are the relevant parts of my code:
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript src="milonic_src.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>   
<script   language=JavaScript>
if(ns4)_d.write("<scr"+"ipt language=JavaScript src=mmenuns4.js><\/scr"+"ipt>");      
  else _d.write("<scr"+"ipt language=JavaScript src=mmenudom.js><\/scr"+"ipt>");
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript src="menu_data.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>

            <td class="links"> <a href="#" onmouseover="popup('Ergebnisse')" onmouseout=popdown()>Ergebnisse</a></div></td>

on the sample i've downloaded it works, so it is not caused by my security settings

BAD FAULT of mine, but is not a conclusion to my prob.
The Problem is with the popup.
it says something about _m[...] is 0 or undefined and _menuCloseDelay is undefined.

You show the call to menu_data.js in your message above, but I don't see it in the actual source code for your page.

And that's correct, because if i place it inside i get a menu at the top of the page.
WOW now it works.
I just forgot to include it and set it to alwaysvisible=0.
Thanks so far.
New Question:
How can I position the menu? In the Sample text it's said but i can't get a clue on where to add the Parameters:
popup() can be passed 2 parameters. menuname and also a toggle for opening menus by mouse position. The Milonic DHTML Menu constantly monitors the X and Y positions of the mouse position for use within the menu system or any other JavaScript functions. The parameter names are case sensitive and are MouseX & MouseY. Note that you can only reference these 2 variables after the file milonic_src.js has been executed. The command popup("menuname",1) will open a menu positioned closest to the mouse. Note that offsets can be applied to top and left properties to fine tune the position of submenus opened with the popup("menuname",1) command.

You're welcome.

You might want to consider taking the shadow filter off the menu, or moving it up about 5px or so. When the menu pops on the rest of the page drops down a bit, and then back up again when the menu pops off. It's a little annoying.

THe menu samples show how to use it. But basically you use popup on objects in a page to try and get a menu to open when they are clicked.

Say you have a could have a menu pop up when you click the hyperlink.

<a href="#" onClick=popup('menu1')>Click Me</a>

And this would make the menu named menu1 appear whereever its supposed to appear on the page (whatever menu1's top and left coordinates are). But if you leave its top and left coordinates blank, you can say...

<a href="#" onClick=popup('menu1',1)>Click Me</a>

And this will make menu1 appear whereever your mouse pointer happens to be when you click the hyperlink. Hope this helps.
