Hello me again, hopefully this will be as easy as the last ones .... i'm trying to learn how to do horizontal menus using lists.

i've read a bunch of different "tutorials" online and even grabbed some examples. alas nothing seems to be working correctly. the below code was one i grabbed from a tutorial site on horizontal menus.. this is their example (except the link line). but it doesn't seem to work. i still get the vertical list/menu. i'm not understanding what i'm doing incorrect or missing since i'm copying this ... does there have to be a DTD or something. any pointers to a good tutorial or an explanation of why this doesn't work for me would be greatly appreaciated.

i'm using frontpage, IE6 and firefox to try and get this to work.

Thanks'
