Unwanted horizontal scrolling in IE

Hi guys,

I have a big problem with positioning a horizontal scrollbar in the top right corner of my page using a table, see the following page:

As you can see the menu is exactly where it should be, but IE just makes up a horizontal scrollbar. All other browsers are working fine!

Does anyone know how to tackle this problem?


edit: needs to be viewed at 1024 x 768 for the problem to be visible.

I have the fix, I can't tell you why it's doing what it's doing in IE.

Instead of putting the menu in that
<td align=right width=500>
as it is now, you need to get rid of the align=right, then put a table in that cell and align the table right, put the menu in that table. So table code would be like this:

<TD width=500>
<table cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 border=0 align="right">
    <td> <SCRIPT language=javascript>the menu as it is now</SCRIPT>

That fixes the problem. Don't ask me why, I have no clue.

Tanks a lot Ruth! We already tried something similar to that, but your code does the trick!
