Hi all,

I have a drop down menu for the 'Products' tab of my site http://www.glen-lodge.co.uk/testing/ws/index.html which works great uin ff but in ie it is impossible to hoover over the product tab and then scroll down to the required product in the drop down menu, the drop down disappears straight away when you move the mouse from over the product tab. Can anyone help me with this very frustrating problem?

Thanks in advance!

ok, when i place the styles for the navigation in the head section of the index page the dropdown works fine but when i take them out of the head section and place them in the stylesheet thats when i get this problem, can anyone shed some light please?

Thanks in advance again!

Try adding your background colour to .gallery dd a, rather than having it on #menu dd. This sometimes does the trick in IE.
