    Li Hover Problem

    Hello,

    This is a very simple problem, but I cannot seem to get it to work properly in IE. I have a mega menu drop down that drops down via jquery on hover of an li. Now when your mouse leaves that li and hovers over the links that appear beneath it, I want the original li to stay in its hover state. This works perfectly in Chrome and FF, but in IE the original li leaves its hover state whenever you move the mouse down to the mega menu.

    Here is a link so you can see what it looks like in both FF (correctly) and IE (incorrectly)

    and here is my CSS code for the li
    Code:
    ul#topnav {
    	position: absolute;
    	margin: 0;
    	padding: 0;
    	float: left;
    	width: 900px;
    	list-style: none;
    	font-size: 1.1em;
    	margin-top: 0px;
    	margin-left: 0px !important;
    	margin-left: 0px;
    	z-index: 999;
    
    }
    ul#topnav li {
    	float: left;
    	margin: 0; padding: 0;
    	position: relative;
    	z-index: 2;
    }
    ul#topnav li a {
    	float: left; 
    	text-indent: -9999px;
    	height: 63px;
    	z-index: 2;
    }
    /*BEGIN OF HOVER*/
    ul#topnav li.products:hover a, ul#topnav li.products a.products:hover  { 
    	background: url(http://p.b5z.net/i/u/10145668/h/Hammer_Sprite.gif) -144px -63px;
    	width: 238px;
    }
    ul#topnav a.inner {
    	background: none !important;	
    }
    /*END OF HOVER*/
    
    
    
    
    
    ul#topnav a.home {
    	background: url(http://p.b5z.net/i/u/10145668/h/Hammer_Sprite.gif) 0px 0;
    	width: 144px; 
    	padding: 0px;
    	
    }
    ul#topnav a.home:hover {
    	background: url(http://p.b5z.net/i/u/10145668/h/Hammer_Sprite.gif) 0 -63px;
    	width: 144px;
    }

    try adding this to the top of your document:

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    Right now you don't have a doctype set? I believe that's why internet explorer is in quirks mode.

    EDit: Yeah, I downloaded the html/css/javascript with the xhtml doctype above, and it works in all IEs
