Doing it with style

CSS MENUSJust to show how simple it could have been

If it wasn't for IE5.x and IE6 then flyout menus could be this simple.

If you look at the CSS, which is embeded in this page, you will see how simple it could have been if it wasn't for the fact that IE5.x and IE6 do not understand li:hover and have to be persuaded to produce a fly out menu using tables and conditional comments.

This works in Firefox, Opera 9, Mozilla, Netscape 8 and IE7 (not IE5.x or IE6). But IE7 does need a HACK! Is this the first of many?

Without this hack IE7 adds a margin beneath the sub link on :hover. I have had to hack this to remove the margin but am still trying to see exactly why IE7 does this and if there is another way round it without the need for this hack.

The answer is to float:left; the <li>s. For some unknown reason IE7 is putting a bottom margin on these if the float is omitted.
