you are a genious, the menu is now showing up, but that has brought me to a new IE failure :)
-- now, the menu works, but the first LI in the list is not showing up and does not appear to be working @ all because if you try and move your mouse down to the other categories, it disappears. Any ideas on that?
Also if it's not too much trouble, since you seem to be quite proficient in exterminating IE bugs, my little brand logos on the left are appearing way too far left and overlap my content div, but once again only in IE.
Thanks again for all the help I would be smashing my head into my keyboard right now without it :)
