Navigation duplicates button in IE 6

Client has IE 6 and their company will not allow an upgrade.  Using IE 6, we are running into issues and I am sure it has to do with commenting.  The problem is that the Club Presidents button is being duplicated.  Any idea how to fix it?

Try the following code.

P.S. Why do you keep using the conditional comments like that when they give you so many problems? Using them like that is an ugly hack anyway.
<!--CLUB PRESIDENTS BUTTON -->
     <li><a href="club_presidents.html">Club Presidents<!--[if gte IE 7]><!--></a><!--<![endif]-->
       <!--[if lte IE 6]><table><tr><td><![endif]-->
       <ul><li><a href="checklist.html">Check List Calendar</a><li>
       </ul>
       <!--[if lte IE 6]>
   	</td></tr></table>
   	</a>
   	<![endif]-->
     </li>

This site is a mess and has been since day one, years ago.  Someone else did the coding on the navigation and it was working ok for awhile until I had to add this button with a drop down. You are right, it is butt-ugly but I am so busy that I just never take the time to fix.  No excuses.  I will try you fix.  Back in a second.

Turns out the "fix" did not fix the problem.  Still showing duplicate Club President's buttons for client.  She is not allowed to upgrade to higher version of IE.  I know - - I know.  Nothing I can do about it.

That page does not have the change I suggested. It seems it somehow got reverted to how it was previously.

Ugh!  You are right.  Too many balls in the air this morning.  We tested it on Friday and it worked but I forgot to incorporate your coding into other pages.  My apologies!

Are all of those pages really completely static?  Making changes like this would be a whole lot easier if you were using PHP includes or SSI to include common page parts, e.g. that menu, on each page.

I will do a find and replace.  I don't know PHP or SSI.  : (

You only need to learn a very small amount PHP to use PHP includes and SSI is similarly easy to learn. In the long run, they are definitely worth using. (I recommend PHP because it can be used to do many more things than just this.)  For this site, it may not be worth the trouble to retrofit it, but the next time you make a new site, using either of them will definitely be worth it.

Here's a little tutorial for using PHP includes: http://www.joe2torials.com/view_tutorial.php?view=3

Here's information on SSI: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server_Side_Includes
