I use Suckerfish to create a drop down menu. It works perfectly well in FireFox, but IE8 is messing it up. It moves everything to the right and the submenu does not work. Furthermore, it seems to be placing the content of the page on top of the drop down menu.

I was wondering if anybody can help me.

This is my css:

/* NAVIGATION BUTTONS */
#menu {height: 21px;width:760px;background-color: #FFFFFF;text-align:left;margin: 0px auto 0px auto;padding:0px;}
#menu a:hover{color: #ffffff;}
#menu a:hover img{visibility:hidden}
* html a:hover {visibility:visible}

#Homemenu {height: 30px;width:760px;background-color: #FFFFFF;text-align:left;margin: 0px auto 0px auto;padding:0px;}
#Homemenu a:hover{color: #4B0D62;}
#Homemenu a:hover img{visibility:hidden}
* html a:hover {visibility:visible}


#subnavn, #subnavn ul {
    padding: 0;
    margin: 0;
            line-height:10px;
    list-style: none;
}
#subnavn a {
    display: block;
    width: 20em;
}
#subnavn li {
    float: left;
    width: 20em;
}

#subnavn li ul {
            border: 1px solid #4B0D62;
            background-image:url(images/submenu_bk.png);
            background-position:top right;
            background-repeat:repeat;
    position: absolute;
            display: none;
    width: 20em;
            top: 1em;
    left: -999em;
            padding: 10px 0 0 5px;
}
#subnavn li:hover ul, li.over ul {
            font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
            font-size: 10px;
            color: #4B0D62; 
            text-decoration: underline;
    left: auto;
            display: block;
            z-index: 6000;
}

#subnavn li > ul {
            top: auto;
            left: auto;
            }


#subnavn li:hover ul, #subnavn li.sfhover ul {
    left: auto;
            display: block;
}


#content {
            clear: left;
}

/* END OF NAVIGATION */

The submenu is set up like this in the header.php:

<div class="cssnav1"><ul id="subnavn"><li><a href="<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>/?page_id=3"><img src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/images/top_menu/nav_off_05.gif" width="122" height="30" border="0" alt="Why Fruits &amp; Veggies" title="Why Fruits &amp; Veggies" /></a><img src="http://www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org/wp-content/themes/moreFruitsAndVeggies/images/spacer_n.gif" height="30" border="0" alt="Why Fruits &amp; Veggies" />
        <ul>
        <li><a href="http://www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org/?page_id=115">Fruit & Vegetable Nutrition</a><br /><br />
        <a href="http://www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org/?page_id=1477">Top 10 Reasons to Eat MORE<br />Fruits & Vegetables</a><br /><br /><br />
        <a href="http://www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org/?page_id=129">Fruit & Vegetable Storage 101</a><br /><br />

        <a href="http://www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org/?page_id=9">About Us</a></li></ul></li></ul></div>

And I have added this script to the header.php:

<script type="text/javascript"><!--//--><![CDATA[//><!--
sfHover = function() {
    var sfEls = document.getElementById("subnavn").getElementsByTagName("LI");
    for (var i=0; i<sfEls.length; i++) {
       sfEls[i].onmouseover=function() {
            this.className+=" sfhover";
        }
        sfEls[i].onmouseout=function() {
            this.className=this.className.replace(new RegExp(" sfhover\\b"), "");
        }
    }
}
if (window.attachEvent) window.attachEvent("onload", sfHover);


//--><!]]></script>

I would greatly appreciate it if anybody can help me.
