1) Script Title: Chrome CSS Drop Down Menu (v2.5)

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

Addtional Script URL : http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-14261.html (Delay dropdown script)

3) Describe problem: I followed the Delay dropdown by alekos in the Additional Script URL . But in IE8 , I have a little error message "document.getElementById(...)' is null or not an object on line 135." How to solve this, please ?

I post up the addtional delay dropdown script here as below:

}
And line 135 is below:

var menuitems=document.getElementById(arguments[ids]).getElementsByTagName("a")

Apart from this error , everything works fine. Please help me to solve this :(

Thanks
