How do I position the menu on the page? I'm using Dreamweaver 8, but the CSS menu does not show in DW. What if I want to position text to the right of the menu?

Hello Gary,

In DW8, go to Edit, Preferences, and check some of the Invisible Elements. I'm using DW as well and the menu is showing for editing. I use the 'split' view on it, so I can change layout and code at the same time. To position the menu, you can play with the '#blueblock' css id, like for example, adding a 'position:absolute' and some 'left:xx; top:xx' styles, or you can use <tables> and put the menu on a <td> to the left and the text on a <td> to the right.

I'm changing left side menu buttons under an existing CSS form page and would like to keep the header portions of that style sheet. Can I run this CSS only, for my menu bar and keep the existing CSS format for the rest o the page?

PS-Great site here! :)

Hi there, I wanted to ask if this menu could be converted into a horisontal one , because i like the colours and the hover style , but I'm not really into vertical menus..
So.. can it be done or not ?

Is it possible to have another tutorial teaching how to make this CSS into a dropdown menu? Looks kind of nice if it's a dropdown menu

On IE6, there are two 'oddments' - text align is centered, and the right most blocks are missing - any fixes? Works perfectly on FF
