Hi I'm having some problems getting this code to work in Mozilla. It works perfectly fine in IE. The problem occurs when I mouse out of the main menu bar, the submenus don't hide. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.




var A_MENUS = [];

function menu (a_items, a_tpl) {

// browser check
if (!document.body || !document.body.style)
return;

// store items structure
this.a_config = a_items;

Would you be willing to post the finished code? Or is this a script online that you hadn't originally incorporated on your web page right the first time?
