Strange menu behavior

Postby JW1962 » Fri May 08, 2009 3:21 pm

I am developing a site for my church and have run into a strange problem.

I have a menu built that works perfectly in Firefox but stairsteps in I.E. 8.0

The menu steps down like a stairway in I.E. I can't show it here but you can view it on the page below.

The content below the menu is also acting as a link. It acts as though something wasn't closed properly like a missing </a> but I can't find it.

You can view the page at http://franklingrace.org/jaws/html/

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I found the reason for the strange behavior. I haven't found the solution. It appears that I.E. 7 works like Firefox does. I.E. 8 doesn't work normally, but if you put it into Compatibility Mode then it looks normal.

This appears to be something that probably affects all Jaws installations that use the menu feature.

Here's what I did to fix a similar problem.
open theme folder and open layout.html

find
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

and replace with
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7;FF=3;OtherUA=4" />

works fine in IE8 (and the older versions)
