Attempting to load this page causes my copy of Safari 3.03 PC to crash. But it works fine on Safari 2.04 Mac.

Matt, I have tested this on 3.03 and 3.0 (PC) and both are fine.

You're a wizard, thank you so much!

Does this CSS require XHTML 1.0 STRICT (as opposed to transitional)?

I surely don't expect anyone to fix my bad code edits, but if anyone has any centering tips...

I modified this - mostly colors, spacing, font size - but also centered it simply by changing .nav AND .nav .current .show from "width:750px;" to "width:auto;". (I think that's all I did). Only Firefox gets it right, in IE it's all mucked up (I didn't edit the IE_css at all). It can be seen at

(Insert "http" for "ZZZ" above.)

David, this will work with any standards compliant doctype. As to centering the menu, it already is centered.

PS - I saw your "how do I center this menu on my page" discussion on your page: Sliding doors 100% clickable and centered, but it seemed to discuss the problem, not a solution. Maybe not.

Thanks for your reply, Stu! I didn't see your post before submitting my last one.

Good news on the doctype. I guess I just need to un-mess your code!

David Agnew:-
I don't mean to bug, but I'd like to use this in a fluid layout. I apologize, I wasn't clear about my intent. Yes, it IS centered, but within 750px. If I simply remove "width:750px;", I get the desired result in Firefox, but I fear IE requires an explicit width.

In other words, how best to center within / fill the width of a fluid layout?
