mozilla and IE coflict

Why the same code used, works well on IE and does not work on mozilla and vice versa, too? I m having too much trouble because of this.
I added a mm menu in my page which works well on mozilla but in IE6 it is obscured by the 'select' field. Plz help me to solve this problem.

Hi Shane,

Do you have an example of your code.

Different browsers render HTML differently for the same CSS, IE is notoriously bad although is getting better with IE7. Firefox is closer to being standard compliant although it does have its own bugs.

Could you please either provide a link to the page with the problem or provide the HTML and CSS code required to reproduce this.

As stated above, the only browser that works is Firefox and Opera. Never, ever use IE as your reference. IE7 is nine years behind web standards. Always use Firefox or Opera as your reference as to whether your markup is working correctly.

thanks for ur response, drhowarddrfine!
So I cannot show the menu in IE as I like to do.
Is there any updates for IE for this kind of pbl?

You will be able to show the menu, however if you have used a valid doctype and the HTML is valid then you may need to correct for the faults in the IE rendering.

If you provide a link to the page or a copy of the code we may be able to provide some assistance

I used dreamweaver popup menu wizard to generate the menu.

For the page where I want to show menu

The mm_menu.js file is generated by Dreamweaver itself

I'll need to try this later as I do not have dreamweaver on the PC that I am using at the moment. You would not be able to change the auto generated code although something might be possible
