    Question I'm having trouble with my CSS drop menu!

    I made a pure image of a drop menu provided be a friend of mine, but after some coding I managed to make it use images instead of text as buttons. This method worked beatifully....Except one thing. It doesn't work on POS Internet Explorer and I don't know why.

    http://www.asdfc.com/test.html

    Is the link to the page (don't worry, virus free). If you notice it works perfectly fine with Firefox, but FAILS with Internet Explorer.

    Any suggestions in the change of code to fix this issue?

    Thanks!

    you are missing doctype before start of <html>

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
