    Default Drop Down Tabs and IE 7

    1) Script Title: Drop Down Tabs

    2) Script URL (on DD):

    3) Describe problem: I've used this script for a restyling I'm carring on in my site: see, for. ex. this working page
    The script operates well, but in certain cases I cannot see the white navigation in the top of pages, if I use Internet Explorer 7.
    See this for example:
    this similar, but not working page

    The pages have a single difference: the first page (working) has DIV used only for spacing defined as follow:
              <div class="BoxDummy" style="width:194px;">
                <p>&nbsp;  </p>
    Where BoxDummy is declared inside a css as follows:
    .BoxDummy {
    	width: 150px;
    	height: 150px;
    	float: left;
    	overflow: auto;
    The second page (not working with IE) is the same in all elements, except the previous DIV in this form:
              <div class="BoxDummy" style="width:194px; height:auto">
                <p>&nbsp;  </p>
    I must say that the script apprently is working with Firefox, Opera, and Safari.
    The question is: why it is not working in these bothering cases, and what can be done to avoid the trouble?

    My guess is there is a CSS targeting your A elements on the problem page that overrides that for div.navigation. Inside your .css file, try adding the code in red below:

    div.navigation a{
    	color:#ddd !important;
    	text-decoration: none;
    	font-family: arial, sans-serif;
    	font-size: 1em;
    	font-style: normal;
    	line-height: 1.2em;
    	font-weight: bold;
    	font-variant: normal;
    div.navigation a:hover{
    	color: #ff0 !important;
    	text-decoration: none;
    div.navigation a:active{
    	color: #FF6600 !important;
    	text-decoration: none
