Does my menu work in IE7?

P: n/a
Hi,

Someone just said that my CSS menu doesn't work for his IE7 browser. Is it
April fools yet, or is he telling me something I need to know?

How do I make this sort of conditional stuff work for IE7 as well as IE6?
What does lte mean?

<!--[if lte IE 6]>

It means "less than or equal to." Wherever you "borrowed" this Internet Explorer hack
code should have explained that. If not:

Hi -Lost,

Thanks for the tip.

I guess if I just change <!--[if lte IE 6]to <!--[if lte IE 7]then
maybe I'll get a working menu for IE7. I can't imagine that very much would
have changed in the way CSS is interpretted between the 'lte' IE6 and IE7
versions. We'll give that a shot and see what the result is.

Thanks again.

Murray R. Van Luyn.

Okay, what about now. Do I have a working flyout CSS menu in IE7 yet?

Well, you could give that a try and if it does not work, try Koch's example:

<!--[if gt IE 6]>

"Internet Explorer greater than 6" definitely sounds like Internet Explorer 7. Unless of
course there was a 6.5 I missed. : )
Thanks again.
Glad I could help.

There's also always <!--[if IE]>, as noted on the page whose URL -Lost
provided you with (but which you may not have read). You could also read

Woouldn't you rather _research_ and find out what the differences are,
instead of just whacking in some hack and hoping everything all works
out somehow?

Microsoft lists the CSS differences at http://preview.tinyurl.com/b245h.

And no, your IE-specific code looks quite frightful, although menu
things "happen" in IE6. The W3C validator doesn't check your
conditionally commented code, but what I've seen by quick inspection
looks nasty. Making whole tables into a-links is not something I'd
recommend, nor is using malformed code:
<A href="#">Remote Control<B>></B><TABLE><TBODY><TR><TD>

Listamatic doesn't have a multiple-layer menu you can use for IE?
