I have tried to create the page with Dreamweaver8 and have uploaded to my site.

First, CSS goes into the <head> section of the site. So move the following:

<style type="text/css">

.solidblockmenu ul{
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
float: left;
font: bold 13px Arial;
width: 100%;
border: 1px solid #625e00;
border-width: 1px 0;
background: black url(media/blockdefault.gif) center center repeat-x;

.solidblockmenu li{
display: inline;

.solidblockmenu li a{
float: left;
color: white;
padding: 9px 11px;
text-decoration: none;
border-right: 1px solid white;

.solidblockmenu li a:visited{
color: white;

.solidblockmenu li a:hover, .solidblockmenu li a.current{
color: white;
background: transparent url(media/blockactive.gif) center center repeat-x;

clear: left;
width:95%; /*width of 2nd level sub menus*/
height:1.5em; /*height of 2nd level sub menus. Set to largest's sub menu's height to avoid jittering.*/

*:first-child+html .ieclass{ /*IE7 hack to remove gap between menu and sub contents*/
margin-top: -1em;

* html .ieclass{ /*IE6 and below hack to remove gap between menu and sub contents*/
margin-top: -1em;



Add it right above the </head> tag.

You also need to link to your the JavaScript file.

Have you downloaded the .zip that is linked on the script page? There is a sample page in that archive that you should take a look at.

I have looked at the archive file. This stuff is really confusing to me. I made a frameset site before and added the stuff I wanted, but for some reason, I am not graspoing the css scripts.
I downloaded the zip file with all the files and added them to my site folder.

I appreciate your help. How do I link it to the file. That was another part I couldn't figure out. Is that what is known as an external css file?
