Amos CliffordIE CSS Spry Horizontal Menu Bar Bug Need Help Please
by on Mar 27, 2009 at 9:01:03 pm

My problem is that the submenus appear to the left; this seems to be the case only in IE. I would like them to appear directly below their parents, of course. I'm pasting the code below hoping that one of you can help.

I've left in some comments where I tried things that didn't work...so instead of taking them out I commented them so I would remember what I tried.

The site is up and live at http://www.restorativeresources.org; check it in IE and you'll see what I mean. I really appreciate any help you can give! Thanks.
