I have read a million posts about this problem to no avail. I was wondering if ayone could look at my test site and tell me why in IE on a PC my spry sub menu bars drop to the right a bit?
www.americanaccents.com/test/index.html
Kind Regards

I'm having the same problem on my site. if anyone could help, that would be great.

thanks

you need to set your margin on your style sheet.

if you can paste your spry style sheet it will be a lot easier for people to add to that coding and to see what is wrong, instead of them having to extract your code from your page.

mmm... try changing your margin-left from margin-left:2px to margin-left:-10px

if that does not work, you will have to tweak it in your html, for instance:

<ul>
  <li><a href="home.html">Home</a></li>
  <li><a href="#">More</a>
    <ul>
       <li style="margin-left:-10px"><a href="option1.html">Option 1</a></li> //margin to minus whatever
    </ul>
  </li>
</ul>

Thanks. but tried this. It makes IE look better, but creates a problem in firefox.

i would suggest that you use conditional commenting then. create it correctly for FF and use the conditional comments to overwrite it for IE to work properly

Actually got it to work now in compatability mode. But now the submenus appear too wide. Here's the new css.

thanks again for all the help.
