Who is Participating?
 
Justin MathewsCommented:
I also noticed that. It happens only in IE6, right? It happens on the dynamic drive web site too in IE6:

http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex1/flexdropdown.htm

Probably one of those IE6 bugs.

Justin MathewsCommented:
In the flexdropdown.css file, if you replace the width of <LI> from :

* html .flexdropdownmenu li{ /*IE6 CSS hack*/
display: inline-block;
width: 170px; /*width of menu (include side paddings of LI A*/
}

To:

* html .flexdropdownmenu li{ /*IE6 CSS hack*/
display: inline-block;
width: 160px; /*width of menu (include side paddings of LI A*/
}

It looks better.
