Problem with drop down menu not working IE6 but ok IE7 & and FF

Discussion in 'CSS' started by Marley, Mar 27, 2007.

  1. #1
    I have uploaded my first css website www.marlboroughbb.co.nz which works fine in IE7 and FF.

    However in IE6 the drop down menu from the Attractions heading does not appear.

    Two questions please:

    How can I check my website on IE6 when I have IE7 on my PC.

    What do I need to do to correct the CSS so that this drop down menu appears in IE6.

    Thank you.

    I can only answer the first question. The easiest way is with this program: http://tredosoft.com/Multiple_IE which installs multiple versions of IE for you with the little hack that it requires.

    IE6 doesn't hover on anything other than a's without either Javascript or the fake tables that Stu Nichols uses. So, to get the dropdowns to work you'll need either
    a: the Suckerfish Javascript (and add the little classes to your CSS sheet) as seen here: http://www.htmldog.com/articles/suckerfish/dropdowns/
    or
    b: stick an .htc file on your server which also is Javascript but tells IE6 to hover on anything you want hovered... webpage: http://www.xs4all.nl/~peterned/csshover.html
    actual file: http://www.xs4all.nl/~peterned/htc/csshover2.htc

    So with Peterned's css hover your CSS sheet becomes invalid as far as the validator is concerned but bleh, it's for a browser whos very existance I consider invalid : )

    Look closely at the Suckerfish code, esp the CSS. It's nice and clean. This should be the goal for all menu css.
