Hi, On this site: http://test do tmagickitchen dot com, I've put a new navigation menu in place. It looks good in FF 3.5, and Chrome and safari 3.1.2.

In IE 7.0, the submenus look a little compressed. I guess it's something in the CSS file. I'll attach that and also a couple o screenshots of what I'm seeing. Thanks!

may want to create a seperate style sheet for I.E.  and adjust the padding-right (lower it) in the css style you're using.

I took the padding down on these two classes:
      /*"""""""" (SUB) Container""""""""*/      
      #qm0 div, #qm0 ul      
      {      
            padding:2px;
            margin:-1px 0px 0px 0px;
            background-color:#FFD47F;
            border-width:1px;
            border-style:solid;
            border-color:#A6A6A6;
      }


      /*"""""""" (SUB) Items""""""""*/      
      #qm0 div a, #qm0 ul a      
      {      
            padding:2px 40px 2px 5px;
            margin:0px;
            background-color:transparent;
            background-image:none;
            border-width:0px;
            border-style:none;
            border-color:#513666;
      }

and the words main courses shows up on the same line now, which is great, but the indicator for the submenu still sits above the words instead of beside them in IE.

is the indicator governed by its own css?

I couldn't figure that out- it's not an image, I'm not sure how to find that in the css file...

It seems to be in the quickmenu.js file, want me to close this question out and ask it again in javascript area?:
// Follow Pointer Add On
      a.pointer_main_image = "images/arrow_down.gif";
      a.pointer_main_image_width = 9;
      a.pointer_main_image_height = 6;
      a.pointer_main_align = "top-or-left";
      a.pointer_main_off_x = -3;
      a.pointer_main_off_y = -4;
      a.pointer_sub_image = "images/arrow_right.gif";
      a.pointer_sub_image_width = 6;
      a.pointer_sub_image_height = 9;
      a.pointer_sub_align = "top-or-left";
      a.pointer_sub_off_x = -5;
      a.pointer_sub_off_y = -3;

      // IE Over Select Fix Add On
      a.overselects_active = true;
