hey guys, i added the spry horizontal menu bar to my site,

in firefox it works a dream.... but the same cannot be said for internet explorer.

it seems to bunch up as 1 in the middle of the page, as i have it centred

if u need to see it then www.draigracing.comlu.com

Some things you might try:


Update to the latest version of Spry (1.6). There's an updater extension available from Adobe.

Get rid of the absolute positioning and the auto margins in the ul.MenuBarHorizontal style rules

Use and actual width (not auto) in the ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul li style rule


And, BTW, you don't really expect everyone to have the Concielian Alpha font do you? Those who don't are going to see Time Roman.

i noticed that it returned to times roman when viewing it from a different PC.

do i have to have the basic Windows Fonts for others to see what i see???

Pretty much. You can also suggest alternatives if the preferred font is missing. For instance:

font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;

wil use Geneva if Verdana is not present on the user's computer and the system's default sans-serif font if neither is available
