I am currently using whatever:hover to simulate a drop down in IE 6 for my site. It has worked wonderfully up until recently. I have had to make the menu options more flexible at the top because of different languages and so needed to remove the width of each <ul> element.
This works just fine in FF and IE 7 but as usual IE 6 has to ruin the party
The menu drops down correctly but as soon as one starts hovering over an item with a sub menu it disappears. Also there appears to be some sort of extra margin underneath the horizontal line of menu items and in some scenarios when I hover over the drop down menu a clear margin appears under that item as well which is probably the reason it disappears.
The working, fixed width version is here: http://www.cybercellar.co.za but if you go to http://www.cybercellar.dk (the menu is in Danish) you will notice the horrible spacing because of the fixed width.
At the moment the non-working version is at http://www.tastesouthafrica.co.za/South%20Africa or http://www.tastesouthafrica.co.za/Denmark/ (For the danish site).
Any help is appreciated as I'm pulling my hair out on this one.
