I managed to find a script for drop down menu's that is pretty browser compatible (IE5, NN4 and NN6) however they don't work in IE4.

I have fiddled and struggled but can't seem to make it work.

Any of you super coders know how to fix this?

See it at http://www.hrmsoftware.com/index_menu.asp
The script is at http://www.hrmsoftware.com/js/fw_menu.js

big thanks in advance.

I have just realised that the friend who gave me this code got it from MM FireWorks (guess thats what the FW stands for). MM have a patch for this problem but it means I have to upgrade to FW4... no thanks. Does anybody else have any code out there for this type of pop up menu that is solidly browser compatible? (IE4+, NN4+).

PS - I wonder if MM should be dishing up this code for free anyway as they have openly just amended Gary Smith's menu.js from DevEdge (which is freeware).

Try www.dynamicdrive.com

Careful though, many dont work in NS6, but that's a common problem with many js scripts just now.

Yeah, I tried there and most just don't seem as 'solid' as the one I started using..

Thanks any way though.

Why not just use layers to hide/show the menu i have found this looks fine in any 4th Gen browser

Yes but how do you get the menu to stay up when the mouse is over it and not over the button?
