Hi Guys,

I hope I am posting this in the correct forums if not please let me know.
I have created a spry menu for my web site using Dreamweaver when I display the page in Firefox the menu and it’s drop downs work correctly and appearing below the menu bar as it should but when I try and display the page in IE 8 the drop down menu appears above the menu bar at the top of the page.

Any ideas on what could be causing this? I have been driving me nuts for weeks any help would be most appreciated.
