Site review please

P: n/a
Please review the page at
http://www.tassie.net.au/~abell1/testoboe4.htm, which is a step on the
way to redesigning my whole site. I have used three floated menus,
two side by side and one immediately below, and have used a display:
block so that the long menus will degrade gracefully across the page
for those browsers which cannot cope with CSS.

The page seems to work as intended with Mozilla, Netscape and Opera
for Windows 2000. It works reasonably well with MSIE 6 except that
all the links referring to the same page show as visited even when
they have not been visited. I know it does not have to be this way,
because I don't have the same problem with a site I maintain at
http://www.onlink.net/~outreach/index.htm

The problem seems to occur whether or not I use float, or absolute
rather than fixed position. I'm beginning to wonder whether is
triggered in MSIE by using any kind of position. Please help.

All I can tell you is that the menu display isn't really satisfactory under
Opera 7.21 or Mozilla 1.5 (K-Melion) either. Only the first two characters
of the menu items get highlighted. I'd suggest marking up you menu items
as a list. In IE6, I see the letter items and "Top of page" displayed as
visited. In Opera or Mozilla, I see none of the items marked as visited.

Thanks, Eric. I'll have to think about it. If I use long lists then
it degrades very badly when used without CSS. The links colour
problem also happens on an earlier version which did use lists.
