    Suckerfish menu problems


    I was working on a menu following the suckerfish tutorial at Alist Apart and I've got it working in FF but not IE6. Big surprise. There's 2 issues with IE 6:

    1. The menu is sitting lower in IE than in FF.

    2. The dropdowns aren't working in IE at all. I've applied the js hack and it's still not working. I can't find what I'm missing but I know it's there somewhere.

    Here's the url: menu

    Please help. Thanks.

    Good News! I just figured out both problems.

    1. The spacing in IE was due to a top margin I used to bring it down in FF. What I should've done (and just did) is cleared the element and that put it right in its place in both browsers.

    2. The dropdowns didn't like my parent div's id. Once i got rid of that (don't guess I needed it anyway) it all worked. It looks & works like it should.

    It's nice when you solve your own problems.

    Thanks!
