    javascript dropdown menu not working right

    hi, i have some links at the top of my page that are supposed to have dropdowns all with different links. the problem is, as i have coded it, (i thought correctly) the menu is messed up and doesnt work right. any help greatly appreciated because i thought this menu would work with just a few tweaks. " meet the staff"(menu1) is supposed to start with "specialists", and forms and instructions. (menu2) is supposed to start with Medical HX./..." thanks. derek

    here is the page im talking about

    http://derekvanderven.com/doctors_columbia/home.html

    here is the css for the menu

    Code:
    <head>
    <style type="text/css">
    .style2 {
    	font-size: 13px
    }
    </style>
    
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
     
    
    <style type="text/css">
    
    #dropmenudiv{
    position:absolute;
    border:1px solid black;
    border-bottom-width: 0;
    font:normal 12px Verdana;
    line-height:18px;
    z-index:100;
    
     
    }
    
    #dropmenudiv a{
    width: 100%;
    display: block;
    text-indent: 3px;
    border-bottom: 1px solid black;
    padding: 1px 0;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-weight: bold;
     background-color: #517e86;    /*makes background color of dropdown blue*/
    }
    
    #dropmenudiv a:hover{ /*hover background color*/
    background-color: #000000;  /* makes hover color black*/
    }
     
    a:link {color: #ffffff;}
    a:visited {color: #ffffff;}
    a:hover {color: #ffffff;}
    a:active {color: #ffffff;}
     
    </style>
    and here is the css/html for the menu

    i finally figured it out after an hour. i was typing in "menu1" instead of "menu2". here is the corrected code.

    derek



    Code:
    var menu1=new Array()
    menu1[0]='<a href="meet_the_staff.html#specialists">Specialists</a>'
    menu1[1]='<a href="meet_the_staff.html#endodontist">Endodontist</a>'
    menu1[2]='<a href="meet_the_staff.html#periodontist">Periodontist</a>'
    menu1[3]='<a href="meet_the_staff.html#ceramist">Ceramist/Dental Technician</a>'
    menu1[4]='<a href="meet_the_staff.html#hygiene">Dental Hygiene/ Preventative Dentistry Staff</a>'
    menu1[5]='<a href="meet_the_staff.html#assistants">Dental Assistants</a>'
    menu1[6]='<a href="meet_the_staff.html#reception">Reception/Front Desk Staff</a>'
    
    //Contents for menu 2, and so on
    var menu2=new Array()
    menu2[0]='<a href="forms_instructions.html#forms">Medical Hx/Registration Form</a>'
    menu2[1]='<a href="meet_the_staff.html#">Post-Periodontal Surgery Instructions</a>'
    menu2[2]='<a href="meet_the_staff.html#">Post-Extraction Instructions</a>'
    menu2[3]='<a href="meet_the_staff.html#">Post Root Canal Instructions</a>'
