    CSS Menu Dropdown not working in IE9


    Greetings, I sure would appreciate some help integrating a css dropdown menu into a site. If you visit www.mts-diesel.com in FF, the drop down works find, If you open it in IE9 the dropdown does not work, BUT if you open this page www.mts-diesel.com/menu.html in IE9 the dropdown works. This leads me to think that it might be some type of z-index issue perhaps but I cant put my finger on it. Thanks for any help. Tom

    Those pages have different doctypes. This doctype does not trigger standards mode in browsers, so don't use it:
    Code:
    <!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
