    Default Spacing Issues & Phantom Black Boxes

    1) Script Title: jQuery Multi Level CSS Menu #2

    2) Script URL (on DD): http://evanced.info/pasco/evanced/ev...ivate=0&ln=ALL

    3) Describe problem: I am using this script successfully on 2 other sites - www.pascolibraries.org & http://library.booksite.com/6692/nl/?list=CNL19, however for the third page, http://evanced.info/pasco/evanced/ev...ivate=0&ln=ALL, I have weird spacing issues in both IE & FF between each heading and phantom black squares to the left of menu items in FF.

    The css:

    .jqueryslidemenu{
    font: normal 12px tahoma;
    background: #ffffff;
    width: 100%;
    float: center;
    }

    .jqueryslidemenu ul{
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    list-style-type: none;
    }

    /*Top level list items*/
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li{
    position: relative;
    display: inline;
    float: left;
    z-index: 100;
    }

    /*Top level menu link items style*/
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li a{
    display: block;
    background: #ffffff; /*background of tabs (default state)*/
    color: white;
    padding: 2px 4px;
    border-right: 1px solid silver;
    border-bottom: 1px solid silver;
    color: #2d2b2b;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    * html .jqueryslidemenu ul li a{ /*IE6 hack to get sub menu links to behave correctly*/
    display: inline-block;
    }

    .jqueryslidemenu ul li a:link, .jqueryslidemenu ul li a:visited{
    color: black;
    }

    .jqueryslidemenu ul li a:hover{
    background: white; /*tab link background during hover state*/
    color: blue;
    }

    /*1st sub level menu*/
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li ul{
    position: absolute;
    left: 0;
    display: block;
    visibility: hidden;
    }

    /*Sub level menu list items (undo style from Top level List Items)*/
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li ul li{
    display: list-item;
    float: none;
    }

    /*All subsequent sub menu levels vertical offset after 1st level sub menu */
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li ul li ul{
    top: 0;
    }

    /* Sub level menu links style */
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li ul li a{
    font: normal 12px tahoma;
    width: 160px; /*width of sub menus*/
    padding: 1px;
    margin: 0;
    border-top-width: 1;
    border-bottom: 1px solid silver;
    }

    .jqueryslidemenuz ul li ul li a:hover{ /*sub menus hover style*/
    background: #eff9ff;
    color: black;
    }

    /* ######### CSS classes applied to down and right arrow images ######### */

    .downarrowclass{
    position: relative;
    top: 0px;
    right: 0px;
    display:none;
    }

    .rightarrowclass{
    position: relative;
    top: 0px;
    right: 0px;
    display:none;
    }

    The javascript:

    /*********************

    var jqueryslidemenu={

    $subul.css({top:this.istopheader? this._dimensions.h+"px" : 0})
    $curobj.children("a:eq(0)").css(this.istopheader? {paddingRight: arrowsvar.down[2]} : {}).append(

    )
    $curobj.hover(
    function(e){
    var $targetul=$(this).children("ul:eq(0)")
    this._offsets={left:$(this).offset().left, top:$(this).offset().top}
    var menuleft=this.istopheader? 0 : this._dimensions.w
    menuleft=(this._offsets.left+menuleft+this._dimensions.subulw>$(window).width())? (this.istopheader? -this._dimensions.subulw+this._dimensions.w : -this._dimensions.w) : menuleft
    if ($targetul.queue().length<=1) //if 1 or less queued animations
    $targetul.css({left:menuleft+"px", width:this._dimensions.subulw+'px'}).slideDown(jqueryslidemenu.animateduration.over)
    },
    function(e){
    var $targetul=$(this).children("ul:eq(0)")
    $targetul.slideUp(jqueryslidemenu.animateduration.out)
    }
    ) //end hover
    }) //end $headers.each()
    $mainmenu.find("ul").css({display:'none', visibility:'visible'})
    }) //end document.ready
    }
    }

    //build menu with ID="myslidemenu" on page:
    jqueryslidemenu.buildmenu("myslidemenu", arrowimages)

    Those black boxes are the default line items marking for a sub-sub (i think) items. Remove this 'display: list-item;' or change it to block.

    Code:
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li ul li{
    float: none;
    }
    Corrections to my coding/thoughts welcome.

    Default Thanks and another issue

    Walrus,

    You were dead on with the phantom black boxes but I have another weird issue with IE after fixing that and taking care of the space issues. Whenever I have sub- sub-menus (3rd level) in IE, the submenu item is whited out until I hover on it. Afterward, it displays correctly but I have to hover over it once. Any ideas?

    The new CSS:

    .jqueryslidemenu{
    font: normal 12px tahoma;
    background: #ffffff;
    width: 100%;
    float: center;
    }

    .jqueryslidemenu ul{
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    list-style-type: none;
    }

    /*Top level list items*/
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li{
    position: relative;
    display: inline;
    float: left;
    margin: 0px;
    padding: 0px;
    z-index: 100;
    }

    /*Top level menu link items style*/
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li a{
    display: block;
    background: #ffffff; /*background of tabs (default state)*/
    color: white;
    padding: 2px 4px;
    border-right: 1px solid silver;
    border-bottom: 1px solid silver;
    color: #2d2b2b;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    * html .jqueryslidemenu ul li a{ /*IE6 hack to get sub menu links to behave correctly*/
    display: inline-block;
    }

    .jqueryslidemenu ul li a:link, .jqueryslidemenu ul li a:visited{
    color: black;
    }

    .jqueryslidemenu ul li a:hover{
    background: white; /*tab link background during hover state*/
    color: blue;
    }

    /*1st sub level menu*/
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li ul{
    position: absolute;
    left: 0;
    display: block;
    visibility: hidden;
    }

    /*Sub level menu list items (undo style from Top level List Items)*/
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li ul li{

    float: left;
    }

    /*All subsequent sub menu levels vertical offset after 1st level sub menu */
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li ul li ul{
    top: 0;
    }

    /* Sub level menu links style */
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li ul li a{
    font: normal 12px tahoma;
    width: 160px; /*width of sub menus*/
    padding: 1px;
    margin: 0;
    border-top-width: 1;
    border-bottom: 1px solid silver;
    }

    .jqueryslidemenuz ul li ul li a:hover{ /*sub menus hover style*/
    background: #eff9ff;
    color: black;
    }

    /* ######### CSS classes applied to down and right arrow images ######### */

    .downarrowclass{
    position: relative;
    top: 0px;
    right: 0px;
    display:none;
    }

    .rightarrowclass{
    position: relative;
    top: 0px;
    right: 0px;
    display:none;
    }

    Not sure, I don't have IE. I'd assume it's a hover- order problem but maybe something else. You should post a link and which menu to hover over so someone else with IE can help you though.

    Walrus,

    I figured it out - while removing the display:list-item got rid of the boxes in FF, it also made the sub menus with sub sub-menus not display in IE until mouse-hover. I added back display:list-item; and list-style: none;. It's working now.

    url: http://evanced.info/pasco/evanced/ev...ivate=0&ln=ALL

    css: .jqueryslidemenu{
    font: normal 12px tahoma;
    background: #ffffff;
    width: 100%;
    float: center;
    }

    .jqueryslidemenu ul{
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    list-style-type: none;
    }

    /*Top level list items*/
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li{
    position: relative;
    display: inline;
    float: left;
    margin: 0px;
    padding: 0px;
    z-index: 100;
    }

    /*Top level menu link items style*/
    .jqueryslidemenu ul li a{
    display: block;
    background: #ffffff; /*background of tabs (default state)*/
    color: white;
    padding: 2px 4px;
    border-right: 1px solid silver;
    border-bottom: 1px solid silver;
    color: #2d2b2b;
    text-decoration: none;
    }

    * html .jqueryslidemenu ul li a{ /*IE6 hack to get sub menu links to behave correctly*/
    display: inline-block;
    }

    .jqueryslidemenu ul li a:link, .jqueryslidemenu ul li a:visited{
    color: black;
    }

    .jqueryslidemenu ul li a:hover{
    background: white; /*tab link background during hover state*/

    border-bottom: 1px solid silver;
    }
