thisMenu.display == "block''

hello,

i am trying to learn javascript.
i found an example of an menu, but there is one thing i do not understand.

in the source it says:

' if(thisMenu.display == "block"){......'

i do not understand what 'block' means.
it is not an variable and there is no definition of 'block' in the script.

can someone help me please,

thanks

I thing it should be:

if(thisMenu.style.display == "block")

The CSS style "display" can be none, block, inline, ''

And the rest. Granted, IE's lack of CSS 2 support render most of them
useless, however you should certainly include list-item. Anyway, see
the CSS 2 specification for a complete list
(<URL:http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/visuren.html#display-prop>).
