Please go to THIS URL (http://www.mediamonsters.biz/test/Untitled-1.html). this menu is looking fine in IE6 & IE7 but in Firefox, the popup box containing the text doesn't show. I think its just a matter of z-index. Please help me showing the box in FF too like IE.

Regards

- add type="text/css" to style tag
- change all onMouse... with onmouse...
- replace <, >, &, ' in attributes values with &lt;, &gt; &amp; and &apos;

validate each time, some error trigger others.

I changed the code as you asked but it destroyed everything :(
This is what I have now...

<ul class="leftnav">
<li>
<a href="#" onmouseover=&apos;fixedtooltip("&lt;div class=\"arrow\"&lt;&gt;img src=\"arrow2.gif\" border=\"0\"&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=\"tooltiptxt\">TEXT WILL GO HERE...&lt;/div&gt;", this, event, "150px")&apos; onmouseout="delayhidetip()">&raquo; Link 1</a>
</li>
<li>
<a href="#" onmouseover=&apos;fixedtooltip("&lt;div class=\"arrow\"&lt;&gt;img src=\"arrow2.gif\" border=\"0\"&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=\"tooltiptxt\">TEXT WILL GO HERE...&lt;/div&gt;", this, event, "150px")&apos; onmouseout="delayhidetip()">&raquo; Link 1</a>
</li>
<li>
<a href="#" onmouseover=&apos;fixedtooltip("&lt;div class=\"arrow\"&lt;&gt;img src=\"arrow2.gif\" border=\"0\"&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=\"tooltiptxt\">TEXT WILL GO HERE...&lt;/div>", this, event, "150px")&apos; onmouseout="delayhidetip()">&raquo; Link 1</a>
</li>
</ul>

Please leave the Validation thing for now. Just see the page (http://www.mediamonsters.biz/test/Untitled-1.html). The small arrow image with the popup is not showing in Firefox. This is the problem.

Someone please help.

You REALLY need to be patient.

Add this to your .arrow CSS

position:relative;
top:-10px;
left:-100px;

Thank you sir for your help. I am sorry, I am messing with the code from the past few days but couldn't yet fixed it.

Sir 1 problem exists now. in Firefox, it looks fine, but now there is a distance between image + text box in IE 6+7. I tried "top" but it didn't work. Can you help me on this also please. (new code is uploaded)

Thanks.

Add this to the top of your CSS

* {
margin:0;
padding:0;
}

The distance between the arrow image + popup box is still there in IE 6+7. While it looks fine in FF.
