Hey all,

Ive recently tried my hand at Javascript, and im trying to make a javascript dropdown navigation bar. I downloaded a pre-made one which I wish to edit and everything seemed to be going well, but Ive hit a snag...

Ive managed to get the navigation working but its not where I want it...

http://img22.exs.cx/img22/2161/navbar8xc.th.jpg (http://img22.exs.cx/my.php?loc=img22&image=navbar8xc.jpg)

I want to move it to where the other one is on the page but the readme file says I had to put this code straight after the body tag for it to work properly...



<script language="JavaScript" src="menu.js"></script>
<script language="JavaScript" src="menucontext.js"></script>
<script language="JavaScript">
showToolbar();
</script>
<script language="JavaScript">
function UpdateIt(){
if (ie&&keepstatic&&!opr6)
document.all["MainTable"].style.top = document.body.scrollTop;
setTimeout("UpdateIt()", 200);
}
UpdateIt();
</script>


I tried putting it in place of the other static navigation on the page, but like it said it doesn't work and this happens...

Can any of you help... Heres all my code...
