View Full Version : css drop down menu no good on IE 8

06-12-2009, 02:04 PM
My css menu works great in firefox, safari, IE6 + IE7, but not at all in IE8.

It is one the first one i have created from roughly looking at some others and going from there (a lot of trial and error)

:confused: Im not sure now how to get it right for IE8?:confused:
I dont have IE8 installed on any computers so I just used a site that makes screen shots of various browsers.

Any help would be great.

I am looking for a tutorial or the code for a basic css horizontal drop down menu... Im currently using javascript to do this and have been told css is a much better option. I have found a couple of online tutorials but the user reviews report of issues with IE6 and IE8. Does anyone know a good tutorial that will work across browsers?

One think im still not sure of...
how do you code for a menu item to open in a new window (ie: target=blank)

eg. www.drivestone.co.uk
I want the "RICHCO PRODUCTS" to open in another window.

See code below:
