Here goes the code:

-------- 8< --------- 8< --------
<html>
<head>
<style>
#top{position:absolute ;left: 0 ;top: 0;font-size:13px}
#submenu1 {position:absolute ;left: 0 ;top: 31;font-size:13px;visibility:hidden}
</style>
<script>
function showsub(){
document.all.submenu1.style.visibility= "visible"
}
function hidesub(){
document.all.submenu1.style.visibility= "hidden"
}
</script>
<title>my firm</title>
<body bgcolor="white">
<div id="foo" onmouseover="showsub()" onmouseout="hidesub()">
 <div id="top">
  <img src="images/about.gif" border=0>
 </div>
 <div id="submenu1">
  <table width=60 border=0 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0>
   <tr>
    <td width=60 bgcolor="red">
     <a href="link1.htm">link 1</a><br>
     <a href="link2.htm">link 2</a><br>
     <a href="link3.htm">link 3</a><br>
    </td>
   </td>
  </table>
 </div>
</div>
</body>
</html>
---------- 8< --------- 8< -----

add the onmouseover and onmouseout to a div containing images and the menu

A typo:

..
..

     <a href="link3.htm">link 3</a><br>
    </td>
   </tr>
  </table>
..
..

ps: Take care about your </tr></td> and missing </div>

hi...
thanks...it works - got your point.
but...i add this lines,because i want this will work also in navigator:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
ns4 = (document.layers)? true:false;
ie4 = (document.all)? true:false;

function showsub(menuNum){
if (ie4){
                        document.all.submenu1.style.visibility= "visible"
                  }

if (ns4){
                        document.layers.submenu1.visibility= "show"
                  }
}
function hidesub(menuNum){
if (ie4){
                        document.all.submenu1.style.visibility= "hidden"
                  }

if (ns4){
                        document.layers.submenu1.visibility= "hide"
                  }

}

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
well...it's not working in netscape not because this few lines but
i think the netscape does'nt like the <div> inside the <div onmouseover...> (nested layers)
am i write?what is the solution?
i will give more points...
