IE6 (Internet Explorer 6) CSS MenuWriter Menu Does Not Work

Menu in Translated Page

Now How Strage Is This!

After creating these absolute links as suggested by Eric and clarified by David, in IE6 the menu came out fine on the translated page. Hurray!
HOWEVER - in IE8, and in Safari as well as FF (both on the Mac) the menu changed into text links with invisible drop-downs and the sidebar div moved to the right (which it did NOT do in IE6!)

Anybody can help me with this menu issue?

Originally Said By: mywebassist220499
  I think what Eric is saying is to change the links to the css files from -Relative- links to -Absolute- links. Right now the page has relative links like this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="../../cssmw2/menu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="../../CSSMenuWriter/cssmw2/menu.js"></script>

To make them absolute links, you change them following this type of an example:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.YOUR-DOMAIN-NAME.COM/PATH-TO/YOUR-FILE/menu.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.YOUR-DOMAIN-NAME.COM/PATH-TO/YOUR-FILE/menu.js"></script>

Not sure if that will fix the issue, but I think that's what he is suggesting. Also not sure if you have to change them all to absolute or just the JS files. A question left to greater minds than mine.
