    css menus not showing properly

    please see http://www.pos itiv eworksho ps.com/default.asp (remove spaces)

    the menus come up funny but different in both ie and firefox

    ideally I would like them to come up right below the menu item with a normal width to show the menus.

    please advise?

    It helps if you understand the CSS rather than just copying and pasting it. Check this out
    Code:
    #menuh li
    	{
    	position:relative;
    	width:77px;    	/* Sophie Dennis contribution for IE7 */
    	height:38px;   /* Sophie Dennis contribution for IE7 */
    	}
    See the width? You have set a width in a few other places causing your links to go out further because the text is longer. Remove the widths or make them larger.

    I saw that but just commented and look at it now --
    it's a mess as the width is full

    how can I make it with a width for the top menu item and then the dropdown should go automatically to the width of its text?

    Why don't you have IE7? Is there any reason why you can't update? It looks fine in IE7 btw. You know you can have IE6 and IE7 on the same system right?

    Umm not quite. I'm running IE6, IE5.5, IE5, and IE7 on this same system.
