Yes. Showing the CSS only is only showing half the problem.

Have you managed to fix this?
I got the same problem. Works great in FFox and Opera, ok in IE6 (if you move your mouse fast enough between the menu and the submenu) but in IE7, the submenu just disappear as soon you move your mouse over to it.

Here is a sample page that show the problem. The css is pasted for menu.css and menu_ie.css is pasted in the bottom. The source..well, you know how to get that.

I did create another menu, that help for IE's stupidity, but this one use a Javascript for that. Reall ywould like to have a cross browser, css only drop down menu.

Oh, btw....new here, be nice

Your doctype is incorrect. See the stickies at the top of this board. Use html 4.01 strict. You are in quirks mode right now.

You also have one html error of a missing closing p tag.
