Problem with IE6 horizontal menu
Summary of a problem I had with IE6 and a horizontal menu that I posted about on the old forum.
The menu worked on IE7 and firefox but the background was not displaying when hovering over the menu on IE6, Simple text menu with backgrounds and no drop downs. Everything worked except the background which meant that on hover, the text becoming white as in the page background, appeared invisible. The missing background would make it show on the other browsers.
Not sure if this would be the best solution, but I discovered that if I changed the a ( setting from 'block' to 'inline' the background then worked, no clue why.
But then, being an inline element the height then failed to be adjustable, so the menu bar shrank to the text height. I messed around a lot with that until found a ridiculously simple solution, set a line height to 2 and voila!
Just goes to show how much I need to read those css books I bought!
I thought I also had an issue with IE6 not allowing auto width of the menu items to work, but it seems to be fine now. Also in case this is ever useful to anyone I discovered that if I changed the width settings as follows
the auto width worked. But as I said I don't seem to need to do that now.
Those changes of course were in the menu_ie.css
