mmenudom.js Kills other Javascript, Messes up CSS

Greetings,

I have the menu working swimmingly, however I'm having a problem with other (simple) items.

1.) Javascript Stops Working
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicinde ... oltip2.htm
Tooltip 2, is a hover thing where you hover over an image, it gives you a tooltip (larger) with a little carat/arrow pointer thingy. Very cool, but when I include mmenudom.js for the Milonic software, the tooltip stops working. Remove mmenudom.js, and the other tooltip program works fine.

2.) CSS Fonts smaller
When I include mmenudom.js, some of my fonts get smaller. I'm fairly consistent with using CSS, and closing tags. What in mmenudom would cause my fonts to change?

Thanks in advance if anyone can help me. I honestly have no idea how / if it's fixable. the mmenudom.js file is (intentionally) cryptic as heck?

Thanks,

aaron

Hi

suggestion:
follow strict recommendations given here:

to avoid interferences between the menu and css styling.

That didn't seem to help.

Michael, Thank you for the quick reply.

I deleted everything out of the menustyle and submenustyle sections, and the same problems are occuring.

Should this have eliminated the problem?

Thank you.

incidentally, I'm running IE7 and FF 1.0.4 and the same strange behavior remains. :(

Hi,

Why don't you use our Tooltips that work alongside the menus?

Here's the link

HI

oops, I was of the opinion the "tooltips" we┬┤re talking about are the Milonic tooltips

No there was link at the top pointing to some from DD dot com:

The Milonic menu has support for Milonic toolips built into the menu files. That's likely the reason that it conflicts with the DD.com modules.

Thank you all for the responses, I'm shocked people are helping, and that's an awesome thing. Sorry this is so mundane.

Well, the tooltip that I'm using has a funky little arrow in it which I love... it will load the files when the user hovers them. I'm using it for a thumbnail image, and when you hover it, the tooltip is a larger photo.

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicinde ... oltip2.htm

is the one I'm specifically using, I like it (a LOT) from the design standpoint. If this can be done in Milonic, then I'd be all about it... I think :)

The smaller fonts I noticed it happens with ASP.NET controls that are not specifically CssClass-ed or in a <Font or <Div tag. Also, my standard body class was a percent (so font-size: 80%; ) and it seems that something (who knows what) is causing it to get hit a couple times (80% of 80% of 80%.....).. I switched to PX size and that worked, and I'm okay with that. I love using percent for the text size flexibiity, but in this area, I can deal.

I guess it's my naietivity in JS and CSS that's throwing me as to why two separate JS/CSS programs can't live together, assuming there are no common function names or 'public' variables in common.

So I guess the question is, can I make an image tooltip, hover, and have it look like that one above with the carat and drop an image in there?

Thanks again for the help .. I really, REALLY appreciate it. I'm kinda in a jam on this project. Aren't we all? :p

Andy, did you just put that there? I swear, if I just missed it, I'm going to kick my own ass!

Now all I need to figure out is how to place the carat there, and I'm golden boy!

Thanks much!
