I am trying to center a drop down list in a table, but when I try to change things, it messes up the drop down list. Here is the code:


.qmmc .qmdivider{display:block;font-size:1px;border-width:0px;border-style:solid;;position:relative;z-index:1;}.qmmc .qmdividery{float:left;width:0px;}.qmmc .qmtitle{display:block;cursor:default;white-space:nowrap;position:relative;z-index:1;}.qmclear {font-size:1px;height:0px;width:0px;clear:left;line-height:0px;display:block;float:none !important;}.qmmc {position:relative;zoom:1;z-index:10;}.qmmc a, .qmmc li {float:left;text-align:center;display:block;white-space:nowrap;position:relative;z-index:1;}.qmmc div a, .qmmc ul a, .qmmc ul li {float:none;}.qmsh div a {float:left;}.qmmc div{visibility:hidden;position:absolute;}.qmmc .qmcbox{cursor:default;display:block;position:relative;z-index:1;}.qmmc .qmcbox a{display:inline;}.qmmc .qmcbox div{float:none;position:static;visibility:inherit;left:auto;}.qmmc li {z-index:auto;}.qmmc ul {left:-10000px;position:absolute;z-index:10;}.qmmc, .qmmc ul {list-style:none;padding:0px;margin:0px;}.qmmc li a {float:none}.qmmc li:hover>ul{left:auto;}#qm0 ul {top:100%;}#qm0 ul li:hover>ul{top:0px;left:100%;}

Your css is very messy, try this:


.qmmc .qmdivider{display:block;font-size:1px;border-width:0px;border-style:solid;position:relative;z-index:1;}.qmmc .qmdividery{float:left;width:0px;}.qmmc .qmtitle{display:block;cursor:default;white-space:nowrap;position:relative;z-index:1;}.qmclear {font-size:1px;height:0px;width:0px;clear:left;line-height:0px;display:block;float:none;}.qmmc {position:relative;zoom:1;z-index:10;}.qmmc a, .qmmc li {float:left;text-align:center;display:block;white-space:nowrap;position:relative;z-index:1;}.qmmc div a, .qmmc ul a, .qmmc ul li {float:none;}.qmsh div a {float:left;}.qmmc div{visibility:hidden;position:absolute;}.qmmc .qmcbox{cursor:default;display:block;position:relative;z-index:1;}.qmmc .qmcbox a{display:inline;}.qmmc .qmcbox div{float:none;position:static;visibility:inherit;left:auto;}.qmmc li {z-index:auto;}.qmmc ul {left:-10000px;position:absolute;z-index:10;}.qmmc, .qmmc ul {list-style:none;padding:0px;margin:0px;}.qmmc li a {float:none}.qmmc li:hover>ul{left:auto;}#qm0 ul {top:100%;}#qm0 ul li:hover>ul{top:0px;left:100%;}

Hey Nile,

I tried the code that you gave me. No luck. Any other suggestions. I've been playing around with the code trying to get something moving where I want it.

Ok, I made it neat for you, and fixed one validating issue. Try this:


.qmmc .qmdivider
{
border-style: solid;
border-width: 0px;
display: block;
font-size: 1px;
position: relative;
z-index: 1;
}
.qmmc .qmdividery
{
float: left;
width: 0px;
}
.qmmc .qmtitle
{
cursor: default;
display: block;
position: relative;
white-space: nowrap;
z-index: 1;
}
.qmclear
{
clear: left;
display: block;
float: none;
font-size: 1px;
height: 0px;
line-height: 0px;
width: 0px;
}
.qmmc
{
position: relative;
z-index: 10;
zoom: 1;
}
.qmmc a, .qmmc li
{
display: block;
float: left;
position: relative;
text-align: center;
white-space: nowrap;
z-index: 1;
}
.qmmc div a, .qmmc ul a, .qmmc ul li
{
float: none;
}
.qmsh div a
{
float: left;
}
.qmmc div
{
position: absolute;
visibility: hidden;
}
.qmmc .qmcbox
{
cursor: default;
display: block;
position: relative;
z-index: 1;
}
.qmmc .qmcbox a
{
display: inline;
}
.qmmc .qmcbox div
{
float: none;
left: auto;
position: static;
visibility: inherit;
}
.qmmc li
{
z-index: auto;
}
.qmmc ul
{
left: -10000px;
position: absolute;
z-index: 10;
}
.qmmc, .qmmc ul
{
list-style: none;
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
}
.qmmc li a
{
float: none;
}
.qmmc li:hover>ul
{
left: auto;
}
#qm0 ul
{
top: 100%;
}
#qm0 ul li:hover>ul
{
left: 100%;
top: 0px;
}
