This is as update on the previous menu that uses HTML+TIME to enable IE5.5 and IE6 to produce a background color change on hover without needing to use conditonal comments or tables within the code.

The IE5.5 and IE6 can also be moved into the main stylesheet if you wish.

This does require adding a new xmnls declaration - xmlns:time="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:time" and the style .time {behavior:url(#default#time2)}

The implementation is then as the code <li id="one" class="time" BEGIN="one.mouseenter" END="one.mouseleave" TIMEACTION="class:backColorOne">
