menu problem

BMc
Hello all,

I have been wracking my brain over this issue for hours and think I have
determined that it isn't a java issue with the menu, but rather an issue
with the CSS of the element that contains it but I am not positive. Has
anyone ever seen a menu split like this before? When you run the cursor
over the menu items, the submenu is all the way across the screen! And
even better yet...if you have seen it, do you remember what you did to
fix it??

My brain and my exhausted eyes will be ever so grateful. Thank you for
taking the time to look.

It is a CSS problem, most likely.

Yes, I've had similar problems. I fixed the CSS to solve the problem. I
try to minimize the amount of HTML and CSS I use so that that's usually
pretty easy. Unfortunately, your HTML code is so full of CSS and tables
that it hurts my brain to look at it.

I looked, and I didn't like it.

You can probably get rid of 80% of the HTML if you put your actual
styles in an actual CSS file instead of putting everything into hard to
debug inline style attributes. You are probably using some kind of
WYSIWYG HTML generator tool. Get rid of it and start again.

Good luck.

Actually, I'm not sure you are looking at my site because there isn't a
single table in it...and the bulk of the text toward the bottom is just
paragraph text I threw in there to extend the content to create the
scroll bar in the content element.
There is a CSS menu setup left in the css file in case I decide to drop
this java menu...that's all that should be there that would be
considered. There are actually NO embedded styles, they are ALL in the
css file. I'm not sure what you're looking at.
Thanks

Oh I see, I think - that script you're using is inserting all kinds of
table crap.

That menu is totally invisible if javascript is disabled. Not just unusable,
simply not there.

If you believe the current statistics/guesses this is like turning your
server off for one or two months each year :-)
