Vertical Spry Bar does not display propery in IE
on Apr 25, 2012 at 2:28:34 pm

I have been having trouble with my vertical spry bar. The bar displays correctly in Firefox but when it is tested in IE the submenus pop up at the top of the menu bar rather than inline with the submenu's parent. My that Dreamweaver created for me is as follows:

@charset "UTF-8";

/* SpryMenuBarVertical.css - Revision: Spry Preview Release 1.4 */

/* Copyright (c) 2006. Adobe Systems Incorporated. All rights reserved. */

/*******************************************************************************

/* The outermost container of the Menu Bar, a fixed width box with no margin or padding */
ul.MenuBarVertical
{
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
list-style-type: none;
font-size: 100%;
cursor: default;
width: 237px;
}
/* Set the active Menu Bar with this class, currently setting z-index to accomodate IE rendering bug: http://therealcrisp.xs4all.nl/meuk/IE-zindexbug.html */
ul.MenuBarActive
{
z-index: 1000;
}
/* Menu item containers, position children relative to this container and are same fixed width as parent */
ul.MenuBarVertical li
{
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
list-style-type: none;
font-size: 100%;
position: relative;
text-align: left;
cursor: pointer;
width: 200px;
}
/* Submenus should appear slightly overlapping to the right (95%) and up (-5%) with a higher z-index, but they are initially off the left side of the screen (-1000em) */
ul.MenuBarVertical ul
{
margin: -5% 0 0 95%;
padding: 0;
list-style-type: none;
font-size: 100%;
position: absolute;
z-index: 1020;
cursor: default;
width: 8.2em;
left: -1000em;
top: 0;
}
/* Submenu that is showing with class designation MenuBarSubmenuVisible, we set left to 0 so it comes onto the screen */
ul.MenuBarVertical ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible
{
left: 0;
}
/* Menu item containers are same fixed width as parent */
ul.MenuBarVertical ul li
{
width: 100%;
}

/*******************************************************************************

/* Outermost menu container has borders on all sides */
ul.MenuBarVertical
{

padding: 0.5em 0.75em;
color: #FFFFFF;
text-decoration: none;

/* Menu items that have mouse over or focus have a blue background and white text */
ul.MenuBarVertical a:hover, ul.MenuBarVertical a:focus
{
background-color: #000000;
color: #FFF;
}
/* Menu items that are open with submenus are set to MenuBarItemHover with a blue background and white text */
ul.MenuBarVertical a.MenuBarItemHover, ul.MenuBarVertical a.MenuBarItemSubmenuHover, ul.MenuBarVertical a.MenuBarSubmenuVisible
{
background-color: #999999;
color: #FFF;
border: 3

}
