    Default flexdropdownmenu IE 8 is no bueno

    1) Script Title: flexdropdownmenu

    2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...exdropdown.htm

    3) Describe problem: code works fine in firefox:3.6.18, chrome 13.0.782.112, opera 11.5 but IE 8.0.7601.17514 does not work.

    The menu adds about 15 pixels of white to the right of the menu option on each level I expand to. Image of what I am referring to can be found here:

    Let me know if I should add this as a defect......

    Not happening for me on the demo page. Does it for you?

    If not, it's probably just something about the page you're working on. Does it have a standards invoking DOCTYPE?

    If you want more help:

    Please post a link to a page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.

    John thanks for the note. I did go look at the example and it is working correctly in IE8.

    I looked at the css and saw I had not resized the IE tag. I resized this and I am in good shape....or at least passed that issue.

    I do see another issue using IE8 please review the following link
    http://www.smactok.com/

    Move your mouse of MLB and then drive into the AL NL. it takes a while for the screen to redraw and 96% of the time I have to move my mouse through each sub menu to see the text.

    Another issue I have is sometimes the menus go up instead of down and you cannot read all the options as they are off the screen. I am assuming this is a css item and will continue to search through the forums for this.

    thanks,

    Try changing this (first thing in the source code of the page):

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    to:

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
    Works here.
