CSS Menu

I created my navigation menu using Menu Writer, and when I view it on my PC everyting looks okay. However,if viewed in IE6 the navigaion link remain and work but the button design dissappears, I also note that I used a fancey font in the header but when viewed on PC with IE 6 the font aslo changes to a large monoblock type font, not exactly what I want. Inexperienced (very) webpage designer.
Thanks
John

I think I know what the problem is in the header I have just read that I need to embed the font as some user may noy have it instaled on their PC, so I wil be looking at how to do this. Still the problem of why the button don,t show when viewed in IE6. This might be important I copied the site to a rom and instaled it on the pc which I will be using to upload the site from, could this be the reason???
Thanks
John

Hi John,

This may not be the cause in your case, but there have been examples where the pages have not been given a 'DOCTYPE' declaration at the beginning of the html. If this (or something similar):

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en">

is not at the top of your page, then some browsers (Mozilla) will display the buttons while others (some IE) won't.

Looking at the doc you posted it seems that your IE specific css might not be linked properly. You currently have it like this:

@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu_ie.css");

The other css files on this page are linked to like this:

@import url("../CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.css");

You should be able to get it working by adding the ../ to the beginning of the menu_ie.css file like this:

@import url("../CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu_ie.css");
