    Hi,

    I don't have a solution for you as I don't have Netscape on this PC but I wanted to mention that when I view the menu in Firefox the boxes shorten and I am only able to view the top half of each word. In IE6 it looks fine and they are the correct height to fit each line/word. Might just be my machine but I wanted to let you know!

    I can attest to the ALA article, I took SE basics advice a few months ago, and used the ALA code on my site.

    I also found http://www.htmldog.com (run by one of the authors of the ALA article) has the updated version of the menus, both vertical and horizontal.

    This is my first CSS project and I (incredibly) didnt have any problems using it at all.
