Hi, I tried to adapt your menu for a site I've created (in my list only top links and first level ones do exist), but I got strange effects in IE5 and IE6... in IE7 instead everything functions! Could you give me the substitutive values in pixels for this CSS to match a 650 pixels wide header? Thanks!!

love that drop down, but i have a problem on IE, it just refuses to show above all other divs and texts, the drop downs are covered up by other divs with a background image which makes everything useless. Would be great if somebody could help.

Trying to make a small modification to this menu and am having a hard time. I want the 1st level menu items to be equally spaced. The way it is designed now they are not--a good example is when a menu item text is longer than the rest.

To do this I decided to remove all the width attributes from the 1st level menu and then place an even amount of padding-right on them all. This seemed to work in all browsers except IE6. It appears that IE6 needs to have a width set for each menu item or else it stretches everything to 100% and thus each menu item takes up one full line.

Please let me know if what I'm trying to do is possible. Much appreciated.

rostom, there are several examples of variable width drop down menus on CSSplay, but IE6 does present a problem. Try the 'skeleton' series.

Any solution for the drop down links disappearing as soon as one mouses down to try to click on them?

Love this menu. However I'm trying to integrate access key functionality and it doesn't seem to work. Any thoughts? Much appreciated

Hi Stu, I'm using your dropdown menu on a city festival website, and it's working great except for one thing. When I mouse down to the second level links, the top level link loses its hover background. I'm still a CSS novice and it's not clear in the stylesheet which rules govern this behavior, so could you point me in the right direction? I'd be happy to make a donation if you can help me out. Thanks!

Uncle Chevitz:-
Awesome code man, but I had trouble locating it. does not seem to have a link to the CSS at all. You might consider making the resources a little more obvious, I had to hunt just for the one tiny little link to the xhtml, but the content is top-shelf by a lot.

The information on where to find the xhtml is in the site FAQs.
