Calling a JavaScript function from a menu item

Calling a JavaScript function from a menu item

I'm trying to implement some features using CSS MenuWriter but have found that in some instances, when using the menu item to call a script, the script does not run. One instance I have involves the CMS Font Sizer script. Instead of using hyperlinks, I want to use a CSS MenuWriter menu to call the script that resizes the text on the page. When I use simple hyperlinks the text resizes fine, but when I call the script from a menu it does not work. I've tried putting the script in the menu.php as well as in the same <div> and the <head> (shouldn't matter). So I'm wondering if anyone else has used CSS MenuWriter menus to call a JavaScript function.

The second instance involves IE (7 & 8). I'm calling the Shadowbox script to bring up a page in a shadowbox from a CSS MenuWriter menu. This works fine in all other browsers (Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome) but in IE the browser just navigates to the page, ignoring the rel="shadowbox....etc." in the <a> tag.

Thanks in advance for any insight as to how to fix this!
