Hello Experts,

I am having a strange layout for the Asp.Net 2.0 Menu control in IE8.0. It works OK in prevoius IE versions and on all FF versions.

Please see attached screenshots for IE8 and FF

Please advise

<asp:Menu ID="mnuMain" runat="server" BackColor="SteelBlue" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px"
                DynamicHorizontalOffset="2" Font-Bold="True" Font-Names="Verdana" Font-Size="0.8em"
                ForeColor="White" Orientation="Horizontal" StaticSubMenuIndent="10px">
                <StaticMenuItemStyle HorizontalPadding="5px" VerticalPadding="4px" />
                <DynamicHoverStyle BackColor="PapayaWhip" ForeColor="Black" BorderColor="Black" />
                <DynamicMenuStyle BackColor="SteelBlue" BorderColor="Black" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" />
                <StaticSelectedStyle BackColor="#507CD1" />
                <DynamicMenuItemStyle HorizontalPadding="4px" VerticalPadding="2px" BorderColor="Black" BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="0px" />
                    <asp:MenuItem Text="Web Orders" Value="Orders">
                        <asp:MenuItem NavigateUrl="~/Admin/WebOrders/SearchWebOrders.aspx" Text="Search for a Web Order"
                            Value="Search for an Order"></asp:MenuItem>

Set this property in the menu tag DynamicMenuStyle-CssClass="adjustedZIndex"

having a css class as follow

.adjustedZIndex {
    z-index: 100;

z-index should be set to some higher value (e.g. 100)

it should work fine then.
