navigation problem with IE6

Hi.
I am new to this forum. But i have read some articles which has been already published relating to my problems, and i tried , nothing worked. I have created horizontal navigation bar then I used Jquery for subnavigation , It works absolutely fine with IE7, firefox, even with google chrome. but it doesn't work on IE6 . here is my code:
For html:
<div id="nav"><div class="inner">
<ul>
<li><a href="index.html" class="current"><span class="link">home</span></a>
<ul>
<li><a href="">some other link</a></li>
<li><a href=""> link example</a></li>
<li><a href="">add anything</a></li>
<li><a href="">this will hopefully work</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href="about.html"><span class="link">about</span></a></li>
<li><a href="portfolio.html"><span class="link">portfolio</span></a></li>
<li><a href="blog.html"><span class="link">Services</span></a>
<ul>
<li><a href="">Building</a></li>
<li><a href="">Roofing</a></li>
<li><a href="">Commercial</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href="contact.html"><span class="link">contact</span></a></li>
</ul>
</div></div>
FOr css:

in the IE6 the main nav bar is not showing as horizontal , it breaks the link and is showing as drop down menu. Can anyone help? It is not on the web that i can show you. But if anyone likes to help please email me I can send u the screenshot. thanks

IE 6 does not handle percentage based widths very well.

I see in a few spots you have set width to be 100%. for compatability with IE6, it is important to set a pixel based width.


I cant see to musch else that raises an eyebrow, I'd have to examine the page in a browser to be able to debug the problem.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I have changed the width with pixel but it still rises the problem. How can I send the index .html and css file to u so u can test it.? I tried to attach it but it says it 's invalid, I tried even compressed zip folder , ( rar) but it is not uploading here).. thanks

add the files to a zip archive and attach the zip file so I can examine the code.
