    Argh HELP Me!
    Ok I am a pretty novice web designer building a website for a uni project....
    Trying to use CSS for layout and a nav menu. Everything looks great in Firefox, but with IE it is another story.
    1) The "web graphics" and "web feeds" links bounce (increase in size) when hovered on. They are the only links in the navmenu that have a second level??
    2) And in IE the second level of the navmenu does not hover correctly and disappears even when the mouse has not left the menu structure.

    I think they are both related to padding? or am I just silly?! i have done so much reading and different IE hacks but am still dumb-founded!
    Any help would be so greatly appreciated :-)

    This link is to my site with the nav menu section
    homepages.woosh.co.nz/tomlaurenson/dark/home.htm
    This is pretty much the same page but the style sheet was added into the html document, and it seemed to have fixed the navmenu sub-level hover problem.... but I don't know why!
    homepages.woosh.co.nz/tomlaurenson/navmenu.html

    Thank you to everyone who took the time to read :-)
    From a perplexed novice~~~

    So is the issue fixed? Also if you wrap URI's with [ url ] and [/ url ] (remove spaces) it will become a proper link.

    Also homepages.woosh.co.nz/tomlaurenson/dark/home.htm did not work for me.

    Hey, no the problem is not yet fixed.
    Here is a link
    http://homepages.woosh.co.nz/tomlaur...dark/home.html
    and a link to the style sheet
    http://homepages.woosh.co.nz/tomlaur...dark/style.css
    The navmenu still 'bounces' in IE and the second level of the navmenu disappears when hovering on it. Both IE only problems.
    I think the problem with te navmenu disappearing with hover is caused by the text in the contents div next to it. When I removed the content div, the menu worked fine!
    Any ideas?

    Is the menu thing something you found on the internet?

    It has all kinds of IE hacks ... which is what your problem really is.

    This is a little bit ironic because of this sentence:
    "... make full use of multimedia and hyperlinking possibilities ..."

    Searching Google, it's tough to find a pure CSS menu system that
    will work correctly with IE:

    There are some that come very close ... you should check those out.

    Thanks for the post! :-)
    Yes, the menu is built from different parts of different menus. Most of the info from CSSplay website and some other websites I have found along the way.
    Should I remove all the IE hacks? Is that bad practice? This is the first full CSS site I have designed, and I really have no idea what i am doing!
    It seems to work great in firefox but one of the aims of the project is wide browser compadibity. CSS menus don't seem to have wide compadibility. I have now figured that out!
    Thanks for the link and info mlseim :-)

    Pure CSS menus don't; however, with a very small amount of Javascript sprinkled in there, you can extend them to work in IE, as well. Generally speaking, this is an accepted tradeoff, since the other alternative is to *only* use Javascript to run the menus, which is just no fun.
