Originally Said By: mark298203
  I've built a horizontal menu with several drop down items and it displays perfectly in all browsers with the exception of IE. I am testing it in the current versions of Firefox, Safari, Chrome and IE 8. In IE 8 all I am getting is basic default text links of the main menu items only. I am simply following the instructions - am I missing a step? Do I need to do anything with the items in the header? Or with the files in the cssmw folder? Thanks.  

I had exactly this problem a little while ago and then again earlier today. I was given the following advice originally and it worked at that time. For some reason, it again manifested itself as a problem today. I reversed the advice in my files and now find that it is again working correctly.

The site I had problems with the dropdown menu is -

The advice from Webassist was this:-

in the CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.js file, find the following line:
if(navigator.appName == 'Microsoft Internet Explorer' && cssmw.ieVersion() <= 7) {
and change it to:

if(navigator.appName == 'Microsoft Internet Explorer' && cssmw.ieVersion() < 7) {

Hope this helps,
