Hi, I've got this menu all setup but it's a Top Navigation style dropdown so it drops down below my menu buttons.

I would like to get it so it appears to the right of my images but I can't seem to position it correctly with the script. Any help would be appreciated. Code is included below. Thank you.



<style type="text/css">

#dropmenudiv{
position:absolute;
border:1px solid black;
font:normal 12px Arial;
line-height:18px;
z-index:100;
}

</style>


<script type="text/javascript">

//Contents for menu 1
var menu1=new Array()
menu1[0]='<a href="#"><font color="#FFFFF">Item1</font></a><br>'
menu1[1]='<a href="#"><font color="#FFFFF">Item2</font></a><br>'
menu1[2]='<a href="#"><font color="#FFFFF">Item3</font></a><br>'

var menuwidth='165px' //default menu width
var menubgcolor='#cc3333' //menu bgcolor
var disappeardelay=250 //menu disappear speed onMouseout (in miliseconds)
var hidemenu_onclick="yes" //hide menu when user clicks within menu?


var ie4=document.all
var ns6=document.getElementById&&!document.all

if (ie4||ns6)
document.write('<div id="dropmenudiv" style="visibility:hidden;width:'+menuwidth+';background-color:'+menubgcolor+'" onMouseover="clearhidemenu()" onMouseout="dynamichide(event)"></div>')

function getposOffset(what, offsettype){
var totaloffset=(offsettype=="left")? what.offsetLeft : what.offsetTop;
var parentEl=what.offsetParent;
while (parentEl!=null){
totaloffset=(offsettype=="left")? totaloffset+parentEl.offsetLeft : totaloffset+parentEl.offsetTop;
parentEl=parentEl.offsetParent;
}
return totaloffset;
}


function showhide(obj, e, visible, hidden, menuwidth){

dropmenuobj.style.left=dropmenuobj.style.top=-500

}
return edgeoffset
}

dropmenuobj.innerHTML=what.join("")
}


function dropdownmenu(obj, e, menucontents, menuwidth){

else if (e.stopPropagation) e.stopPropagation()
clearhidemenu()

}

function clearhidemenu(){

if (hidemenu_onclick=="yes")
document.onclick=hidemenu
