I think there is a small bug in this one, but as I'm no expert I wouldn't bet my life on that it isn't me who is the problem.

English isn't my first language, but I'll try explain anyway:

The problem occurs in IE 6 when there are two meny items on second level next to eachother, and they both have sublevels. If I first hover the first of the items it shows the next level items as it should. When I then move the pointer directly to the next menu item right above the first one (still in the same level)it only show empty placeholders for the next level. It is almost as the... hmmm... hard to explain in english... well, as if the sub menu items for the first meny item are in front of the others but without text. If I go to that second menu item directly from a single level item it shows as it should. In FF it works fine.

My explanation must sound confusing, just test your self by making two sub menu items (with third level items in them) next to each other and see for your self.

Love this site :)

CssNewbie, I have added another third level flyout but cannot see the problem.

Ok Stu, my explanation wasn't to easy to understand :)

I'll set up a test page later where the problem can be seen and post the link here.

Now my example is up, you can see it here:
The problem is with IE 6.

I can see that it works on your menu here, so I guess there must be someting with my menu code... strange, I can't see any differense between my menu code and this one.
Well, I guess the problem wasn't a problem...
Thanks! :)

CssNewbie, I have been playing with your menu and have discovered the problem. This is very obscure and I don't know why it causes problems, but add a title="something" to your top level links and it should work.

Stu, that was really obscure! I would never found out that my self! Now it works perfectly.

I'll never again leave out the title part of a link! Not even when just testing! :)

Thank you! :)

CssNewbie, this is also one for my 'must remember' file. It may be the reason some of my early attempts didn't work.

Really a nice job !
I was just wondering what css part of the code would have to be adapted to be able to make it drop-down instead of pull-up.
I've tried some things now but with no luck.
