I don't think the issue is P7, I think it has to do with my nested divs and
my lack of skill on using positions.... I was keeping those main navs to not
be absolute since they're generated dynamically, so just now I added some
code to dynamically change the left: value by adding a width on each loop
(luckily each image is the same size)--- Now it works in NN7 in that the
menus are popping up right above, but now that whole "row" is on the extreme
left side in NN only. In Firefox, everything's still groovy (of course), but
now in IE6/WIN my popups aren't showing (argh, and THAT (making them appear)
was a fix I just got through!)
The rubix cube squares shift....

I say "[I am] not sure what else I can offer you" in my previous response
because working with CSS and popup menus (speaking from
An alternative would be to feed netscape something watered-down... you know,
like a menu that has all of the popups expanded, or an alternative layout
that is not as complex and coded in a way that is not problematic. Attacking
your problem in this way may save you a ton of headaches.
If you are using PVII scripts/code, have you checked the
www.projectseven.com support forums?
