Works fine in firefox but when in IE when i click the more it shows a solid white box. When i click anywhere, even on the scrollbar it acts as if i clicked the more button and goes back to normal. Any idea what's going on? Thanks in advance.

Hi Stu,

Thanks for your great job!

Could you tell us more about your message for Julian, "It would be possible to include links if you use the 'tables' method that I use for the drop-down menus."

How can we do this ?

GJ, if you look at my drop-down or flyout menus you will see that it is possible to nest links within links using a surrounding table. The same method can be applied here.
If ther is a need for this then I might be persuaded to produce a 'more v2'.

Hi Stu,

Thanks for your advice but a more v2 will be welcome.

I tried your advice using nested links surrounded by tables. It works half the way in FF. It is a step forward but the hidden part is always visible.

I tried many times to place tables before or after the em tag. I tried to place comments and nothing goes in IE6. I do not know where exactly to place them and what comments to use.

I am not a css expert like you. It is why I need help or a more v2.

GJ again,

Reading all comments for this subject I saw that I am not alone to wish a more v2.

I am trying to modify into an inline css idea. Need to send htm email to subscribers but want expanding content. I believe I am running into is the limitation that inline css refers only to the element it is defined within (not inherited).

Within the more anchor, can I define style= for the em and span tags that are nested within the anchor? I can follow the idea when style is embedded but not when moving down to inline inherited elements. Sorry.

Could you verify the limitation is the right interpretation? That I cannot define style for inherited elements within inline css?

Steve, that's about it. You can style the span and em and also the outer link should you have text that is not covered by the span and em tags.

Thanks Stu. I appreciate the quick response.
