I have two problems with a horizontal menu widget.

One is a box that comes up under my submenus that says "false" in it.
The other is that I have the menu positioned in DW but when I put the file and view it in my browser (IE) it stays off to the left.

I am new to DW, a recent convert (or trying to be) from FP.

Please help! I am trying to get my site transfered into DW and I am stuck.

well I have figured out that the "false" thing was because I had the width set to auto.

Now I just have to figure out how to position the menu bar.

Nav seems good to me. Did you already fix this?

I fixed the one issue. I am having problems still getting the thing to line up where I want.

The 'thing'?

Lol... sorry.
I thought that I already specified that I am having problems with the menu bar widget positioning. I didnt think I had to say it again. Thought I could call it a thing from now on.

So I cant seem to understand how to set the positioning of the menu bar.
When I turn the width to Auto my titles disapear, but it does go to auto.
I can specify a width I guess.

It seems like it is stuck to the right, left or middle. I was trying to pad the left to slide it over so it was centered under my title. any suggestions?

Try to align to to the right, then add some right margin until you get it where you want.

Finally got it to be where I want it to be left to right.
I kept floating it right but it wasnt working. Then I saw ul.MenuBarHorizontal li.MenuBarItemIE item. So I floated it right in both places and now it looks right in DW and in IE and then I put in a margin as you suggested and with it all together it worked.

so now I want to get it in line with the bottom of the logo.
I am a bit unclear as to how to do this. I tried doing a verticle align to bottom but that didnt work. I am sure its right in front of me but I am not seeing it.

I managed to do it with some line breaks. I have been away from web dev for a while but I am pretty sure that they are fauxpas now so if there is a better way I would like to know.
