IE 6 Problem

IE 6 Problem

Hello, my horizontal CSS menu works fine in all browsers, including IE 7 and 8, except IE6. All I get is a text list. I've tried changing document types, as per previous posts, to no avail. Also, I've tried implementing the IE "conditional fix" in Dreamweaver. It doesn't fix the IE 6 problem, but it does screw up the IE 7 and 8 page.

Can you help?

change:

<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw0/menu_ie.css");
</style>

<![endif]-->




to:

<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu_ie.css");
</style>

<![endif]-->

Jason, that worked great. Last problem: The final list item doesn't seem to roll over. Check out these URLs:

index.html
news.html

Thanks for all your help!

Stuck in Position

Yes, on the index page, the menu works fine.

Click on the New Losses or the News link in the Menu and you will see the prob.

Thanks again ... Here's the index page:

the problem is due to your highlightning settings and the fact that the top level and first menu item are linked to the news.html page:
<li class="parent"><span><a href="news.html">News</a></span>
<ul class="level-1">

<li><span><a href="news.html">Recent News</a></span></li>
<li><span><a href="newsletter.html">Newsletters</a></span></li>
</ul>
</li>






the top level highlighting uses the value for the ancchor tag:
<li class="parent"><span><a href="news.html">News</a></span>


to select which menu item is highlighted.


since the first child link goers to the same page:
<li><span><a href="news.html">Recent News</a></span></li>


it gets highlighted too.
