Hey all,

I'm trying to make a small menu popup via CSS. On rollover, the link should display another set of links below the link that the mouse is hovering on. The code Below works in FF but not in IE. Could someone help out? Thanks.

style.css

.navigation {
	margin: 0.5em; 
	padding: 0.3em; 
	border: 1px solid #C4C4C4; 
	text-align: left;
}
.navigation li a:link, a:visited{
	color: #545454;
	text-decoration: none
	
}
.navigation li a:hover{
	color: #72C32B;
}
.navigation li a:active {
	color: #545454;
	text-decoration: none
}
.navigation ul{
	list-style-type: none;
	margin: 0.3em 0 0.1em 0.1em;
	padding: 0em 0 0.1em 1em;
}

.navigation li .popup {
	display:none;
	background-color:white;
	background-style:solid;
	position:float;
}
.navigation li:hover .popup,
.navigation li:focus .popup,
.navigation li:active .popup  {
	display:block;
}
nav.html

<div class="navigation">
	<ul>
		<li><a href="Home.html">Home</a></li>

document.getElementById("div_p").style.display="block";

Hey,

Thanks for the help however I get an error when I attempt to run this code:

javascript

<script language="javascript">
	function displayMenu() {
		document.getElementById("popup").style.display = "block";
	}
	
	function hideMenu() {			
		document.getElementById("popup").style.display = "none";
	}
</script>

html

<div class="navigation">
	<h2>Menu</h2>
		<ul>
			<li>
				<a href="#" onMouseOver="javascript:displayMenu();" onMouseOut="javascript:hideMenu();">Links</a>
				<div class="popup">
					<ul>
						<li><a href="Link1.html">Link1</a></li>
						<li><a href="Link2.html">Link2</a></li>
						<li><a href="Link3.html">Link3</a></li>
					</ul>
				</div>
		</ul>
</div>

I get an "Object required" error within both of the function where document.getelementbyid... is.

Any suggestions?

Ok i figured out what I was doing wrong. My popup div did not have an ID. But now I have another problem... The popup works when the mouse is over the parent link but when you go to choose one of the sub links, the onMouseOut is fired and the links disappear. Is there a way around this? Thanks.
