1) Script Title: Any link drop down menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/dropmenuindex.htm

3) Describe problem: The menu part seems to look fine but when I try to hover over it the drop down menu doesn't seem
to work, I'm going to post a link to my site as well as the sourse code, if someone could tell me how to fix this problem that
would be great, thankyou. :)

There's an error in your menu contents. Any single quotes within them need to be backslashed, so for example:


menu1[2]='<a href="http://www.carrieszczepanski.org/lifeslist.htm">Life\'s List</a>'

Do this for any other occurences of single apostrophes/ quotes in menu[].
