Tables corrupted when using Macintosh - IE5

P: n/a
My NavBar works with IBM/IE5.5 but does not work properly with
Macintosh/IE5.

The on page vertical NavBar has a button in each <td> The buttons are
separated with a style="top:XXpx" in the td tag. With Macintosh, the
buttons are not separated, but appear without any gaps between them and
Javascript says that the offsetTop is the same for each button in the stack.

Second problem: the pop-up menus are held off screen and moved by
Javascript to the correct position on mouseover. These pop-up menus are
tables with a button in each <td> . On mouseover, the pop-menus appear in
the correct position but, with Macintosh/IE, the button text in them is
corrupted, all overlayed in the first button position. I have altered the
starting position of the pop-menu to be on screen and it is drawn correctly
initially. It's when the line in the Javascript function that changes the
the pop-menu's position that it is corrupted.

I get a "script error" message while trying to access your page
<http://www.brilley.co.uk/testmenusMac.asp>. I'm using Mac IE5 also. If
it's a javascript problem, I can't help. The error is "Submenu is
undefined".

Thank for your help. Sorry about that. JavaScript error was masked by
Norton Anti-Virus! The page now runs in IBM-IE5 without JavaScript errors.
Any ideas on why the menus are corrupting?
