Hi Guys,

I am designing a web page that will include a nice javascript hover over drop down list. I have three files; js file, html file, and a css file. In chrome, it looks beautiful, and in Firefox it looks beautiful, but in IE, there are some alignment issues. Could someone please assist? Here is the code:

HTML File:
=======================================================
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

<html>

<head>

<script type="text/javascript" src="dropdown.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="dropdown.css" type="text/css" />

<title>

HYFLODRAULIC

</title>

<meta http-equiv="Page-Enter" content="blendTrans(Duration=1.0)">
<meta http-equiv="Page-Exit" content="blendTrans(Duration=1.0)">

<style>
a{text-decoration:none;}
</style>

<style>
a:hover{color:67c5b5;}
</style>

</head>

<body text=#ffffff vLink=0088771 aLink=008871 link=008871 background="images\background.jpg"

I hope someone can figure this out! It is so greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

Hello justinfancy,
I don't understand why the retro rewrite. http://www.hyflodraulic.ca/default.asp is a much more modern, and nearly error free, version of the layout you've posted here. Why go back to tables now?

See the link about tables in my signature line.

When posting code in the forum, please use the code tags,
- available with the # button in the post edit window.
This will wrap your code in a scroll box which greatly helps the readability of your post.


<td width="945" align="right"> is what's pushing your anchor over to the right.
