jQuery Superfish Dropdown Menu IE Error

oonon used Ask the Experts™
I'm trying to use the Superfish dropdown menu on a website (which you can find here: http://users.tpg.com.au/j_birch/plugins/superfish/).

However, in Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8 I get this error:

Message: Object doesn't support this property or method

This line in question is below. I'm pretty new to jQuery and javascript and appreciate the help!

73			jQuery('ul.sf-menu').superfish();
74		});

Thanks, but that code brings up the same error.
oonon, the problem is the references to jQuery, hoverIntent and superfish JS files.  If you use Firebug with Firefox, and view the NET tab - you will see resources that did not load.  The very vague "Object" error in IE means that .superfish() is not a valid method, because the script has not loaded.

Fix the references and I'm sure it will work.

You are also include jQuery twice:


and from the google CDN:


.. that cant be good!  At the very least an unnecessary performance hit..
