Hello all:

I am having a problem with my spry menu bar children going up in IE on Windows, but is fine in FF (mac and windows), (Safari, Opera, Camino (Mac)).**

There is also a small gap between the parent and children buttons that I tried to correct with a top setting of 2.95ems on the ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul.


I've read all the threads on here and can't seem to solve this. Can anyone please help?

Here is the site http://www.expeditionwild.com/

Here is some of my spry css. Thanks for any help you can give this newbie.


ul.MenuBarHorizontal
{
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
list-style-type: none;
font-size: 100%;
cursor: default;
width: 1000px;
background-color: #CC9;
}
/* 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 a fixed width */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal li
{
margin: 0;
list-style-type: none;
position: relative;
text-align: center;
cursor: pointer;
width: 250px;
float: left;
padding-right: 0;
padding-bottom: 0;
padding-left: 0;
height: 40px;
background-color: #CC9;
}
/* Submenus should appear below their parent (top: 0) with a higher z-index, but they are initially off the left side of the screen (-1000em) */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul
{
list-style-type: none;
font-size: 100%;
z-index: 1020;
cursor: default;
width: 8.2em;
position: absolute;
left: -1000em;
top: 0;
background-image: url(../images_FINAL_DROP_DOWN_TEST_SITE/Link_Button_1x40_SQUARE_Background_OVER.gif);
padding-top: 2.95em;
}
/* Submenu that is showing with class designation MenuBarSubmenuVisible, we set left to auto so it comes onto the screen below its parent menu item */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible
{
left: auto;
}
/* Menu item containers are same fixed width as parent */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul li
{
width: 8.2em;
padding: 0px;
margin-top: -1px;
margin-bottom: 0px;
margin-left: -40px;
}
/* Submenus should appear slightly overlapping to the right (95%) and up (-5%) */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul ul
{
position: absolute;
margin-right: 0;
margin-bottom: 0;
margin-left: -95%;
margin-top: -5%;
}
/* Submenu that is showing with class designation MenuBarSubmenuVisible, we set left to 0 so it comes onto the screen */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible
{
left: auto;
}

Im not able to use the drop down menu at the bottom to skip to another forum. This morning too. Thought maybe it was a maintenance thing but its been all day. No drop down.

It's working for me in FF. Can someone else confirm this in IE?
