I'm using Coolmenus (dhtmlcentral.com) which works nicely for my site. Now I'd like to place the menu inside a table, but I don't know how to position it. The table is like this:
    <CENTER><TABLE WIDTH=750><TR><TD>
        text...
    </TD></TR></TABLE></CENTER>
so the exact position of the table is unknown to me. How to define the CSS that's required to do this? Is it possible at all??

Thanks.

Although this works in Firefox, it doesn't in the Internet Exploder. IE wants the construct() call OUTSIDE the <table>, in fact outside all <table>s.  With that adaptation, it works.
