Mac display problem and Milonic menu sometimes appears

We are a nonprofit organization. I read your discussion of two previous topics (from jlwood and tomjelen), and unfortunately, I have both problems on my test site The menu script version is 5.13.

The problems are:

1. It did not display well in Mac. I followed the instruction of FAQ. Include all src files in body and main menu in table. One of my user who use Mac always complained about menu display problem. I really can't figure out why it display well in PC but not in Mac.

2. There is a problem in PC. The first menu label sometimes change back to Milonic. I already put your link in the page. Some users might see the Milonic menu and if he refresh the page, the problem is gone. But it MAY come back next time if you visit the site again. It is hard to debug because a successfult visit does not guarantee a successful visit next time.

Please help. Thanks!

Best Regards,

Is the display problem in all Macs or just some and which? As to the milonic link, did you try what the reply was in tomjelen's topic? One of the repsonses to that said that using the suggestion fixed the problem.

Exactly what is the "display problem"? I've just been through it in OS X/Safari with no problems that I can see.

John and Ruth,

Thanks for your reply. The following are answers to your questions.

1. There are two seggestion for Milonic menu problem.

* Upgrade to new version which I did but does not really solve problem (I saw the Milonic at least once).

* Try moving the <script> tags that load the menu scripts to the bottom of the body, just before my closing </body> tag. I can't do that because my main menu is in a global table and it need to reference the script code. And also according to the FAQ, I should not put them in table. That put me in only one option - after the <body> tag.

2. My customer send me a screen shot and the menu is just not there (maybe just a line). His Mac is OS/X Darwin.

Any suggestion?

Best Regards,

I don't see a problem in Safari, but you might want to see what


that is appearing, maybe W3 validation service might help to solve any html errors.

Looks like a left-over close from a comment.

The following is information about her Mac.

OS Version : MAC OSX 10.2.8
Browser: Internet Explorer: mac 5.2

We are trying to fix the --> problem. By the way, have anyone of you ever see the Milonic menu? It seems like after I refresh my browser, I never see it again.

Your best bet is to take the menu out of the table completely, mac ie will handle it better, and you really don't need it in a table.

If you keep menu_data.js entact and remove position relative. Instead use top= ;(amount in px's) and screenposition="center";

I think you would find this a lot easier.
