Geoffrey,
Looks better than it did yesterday, that's for sure. This is one way you 
might deal with it<http://dlaakso.com/2c-in-2c-horznav.html>, although 
probably more complex than necessary for your needs. The point is, it 
really is not necessary to use absolute positioning-- that and setting 
height on containers, alway creates problems. Not using pixel based 
mouse type helps, too.
