1) Script Title: Gooey Menu

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

3) Describe problem:
Prob 1) I added two <br> tags and now my gooey menu has disappeared?

Prob 2) My blue gooey background effect is no longer centred around the menu text (vertical centre) ? (I changed the menu text size to x-large, but don't know if that's relevant??)

Prob 3) the mouse over - change to "menu select hand" is now limited to the bottom thin strip of the menu text?

Final Issue: When I have no menu item "selected" (default to setting), I would like the gooey effect to go away and hide off the left of the screen. Where and how can I code this? (currently the gooey effect stays on the screen on the last mouseover menu item, falsely giving the impression that that is the currently selected page.

I am most grateful for any help or advice on how to fix the above?

Thank you.
