Hi, I'm working on a spry menu in Dreamweaver, and it looks exactly how i want it in Firefox, but in Explorer my submenus shift to the left and overlap my menu a lot.

Also on my horizontal menu, the whole menu shows up shifted to the left and to the top in Explorer

Here's the website

Heres my code for the vertical menu

No offense, but the horizontal menu clearly tells you that its overlapping..lol

/* Submenus should appear slightly overlapping to the right (95%) and up (-5%) */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul ul
{
    position: absolute;
    margin: -5% 0 0 95%;
}

Just write the marins -5% to 0% for top overlap and 95% to 100% for left overlapping.

Just look for this code
ul.MenuBarVertical ul
and change the values. Hope this helps, please thank if it did
