It's based on the tutorial at SEOConsultants.com and uses the csshover.htc behaviour to force IE into responding properly.
We used it again on site we redesigned for a client recently. The site was developed on our own host, and then installed on a new hosting server provided by a webhost company we frequently use.
This one is behaving very strangely. The dropdowns all appear on cue when the site is viewed in Firefox. They also appear on cue when viewed in IE6 -- but only in some instances!
We have a "spare" PC in the office that our designers use to check new pages & designs; on that computer, running IE6 on WinXP, the dropdowns work. When I asked a supplier (a web apps specialist) to take a look at the site, he said there were no dropdowns. I took a look on my own PC, running IE6 on Win2K, and sure enough - no dropdowns. Three other people in the office looked, all IE6 on WinXP, and none of them see dropdowns on our clients live site.
But ALL of us can see the dropdowns when we look at the website on our development server!
It seems the menus are broken only in some instances of IE6 and only on the live site.
I was thinking it must a specific setting in IE6 that causes it, but the problem does not affect any of our other sites that use this kind of menu design.
Anyone care to take a stab at this? I'll put the URIs for the live site and demo site into my signature, if you have time for a peek. Of course, you might not actually see the problem either, depending...
