Basically it is a horizontal menu created with a list. The menu has a rollover efect the menu display perfectly on firefox it display horizontaly and th the rollover effect works just fine.

On IE the menu is displayed vertically the rollover effect works just fine. Whene you look at the menu on IE you just see the first 2 LI.

Please thank you for your help.

PS it works just fine on IE 6 it is only on IE7 that it dose not work.

If you need anything else just ask.

Thanks

Ok, now I'll I need is the CSS that's making it act funny.

Usually, the full code helps and not just snippets. Sometimes other code can affect layout by proxy.

Thanks for all your effort

Here is the code:

/* New Navigation Bar EI and Firefox Complient */

#info {height:25em;}

#info p {text-align:center;}

.menu {
  display:table;           /* ignored by IE */
  padding:0;
  list-style-type:none;
  white-space:nowrap;      /* keep text on one line */
 }

* html .menu {
  display:inline-block;    /* for IE only */
  width:1px;               /* IE will expand 1px width to fit menu width */
  padding:0 2px;           /* fix bug in IE to get border spacing correct */
  }

.menu li {
  display:table-cell;      /* ignored by IE */
  }

* html .menu li {
  display:inline;          /* for IE only */
  }

.menu a, .menu a:visited {
  display:block;           /* for all browsers except IE */
  padding:4px 4px;
  color:#000;
  background:#BFD199;
  border:1px solid White;   /* add a 1px white border around each list item */
  text-decoration:none;
  font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
  font-size: 12px;
  font-weight: bold;
  text-align: center;
  width: 114px;
  }

* html .menu a, * html .menu a:visited {
  display:inline-block;    /* for IE only */
  margin:0 -2px;           /* to correct an IE bug that doubles the border width */
  }

.menu a:hover {
  color:#B22222;
  background:#DEE385;
  }

.lefted {margin:0 auto 0 0;}

.centered {margin:0 auto;}

.righted {margin:0 0 0 auto;}

Your CSS is all over the place.  You have an ID on your UL list that doesn't even exist #menu lefted.

If your trying to get your menu to align horizontally, you need to float your li's left:

Try this:

#info ul {
      list-style-type: none;
}
#info ul li {
      display: block;
      float: left;
}

You'll need to adjust padding and background images to get it to look the way you want it to.  But that code above will get your navbar in a horizontal manner.

I hope this helps you.  Personally, I would scratch your code and start over, you have a lot of code that's stepping on itself and causing more problems than needed.
