There are gaps between each link in when viewed in IE 7.

Once IE7 formally releases, I'll be going through all the CSS codes to address any issue in that browser. :)

This is a GREAT! menu.

Definitely a good menu, but an even better method of applying this would be to 1) combine the two images into one, and change the horizontal positioning on a:hover to avoid that quick bit of white space when you first hover over a link, and 2) make the images 1px wide... just to cater to the dial-up crowd even more :P.

Otherwise a fantastic menu.

erm,i gt a question,how to change this vertical menu to a horizontal???
Posted by ben on 08/03, 01:46 AM
Making it horizontal is fairly simple--after adjusting height and width to your desire (or before, it really doesn't matter), set the li's in question (such as #nav li ) to either float: left; or display. Either or both of these methods should work (I've personally tested float: left, so I know what I'm talking about on that}. If you need further help... just respond.

erm,then for the above code,where should i put the float: left?
