Java hover not working in IE9

I have a menu that I've used for ages. Turns out IE9 doesn't like it at all. I'm hopeful someone has run into the issue already and it's an easy fix. Check out this page in IE9 and IE8 (or chrome or whatever.)

You should see that the latter configuration works. A standard IE9 installation on a Win7 box does not.

Yeah! It's strange!

Try adding the following META tag!

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8">

Open in new window

The above meta tag, allows to render the content in IE8 browser mode!

Hope it helps u...
Interesting solution.  It won't work in IE9 so degrade the browser to IE8; instead of the obvious solution of getting rid of cufon and just write good standards compliant code.

We get enough problems with cufon questions every month that I have come to the conclusion that cufon is a problem, not a solution;  but that is just me.
