I've used menu builder for a horizontal menu and it does not appear correctly in IE8. Is there a way to fix this. I know that I will not be able to get everyone off of using this old browser .

The site is: ilala.org

Thanks.

I only see a horizontal menu on that page.:)

It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Bottom line. IE8 is out. Make your pages for current users and let your 'old' users upgrade. They will eventually anyway. Just my 2 cents...

It might be served up on a local server. A lot of companies still run IE 8 on local networks with older systems. The cost and time to upgrade these servers is usually large. I agree that they should upgrade but I know it's not always practical. If this is on the net and IE8 support is still needed then a script to redirect users of that browser is probably needed. I put a warning message on one of my sites telling users to upgrade as the site is optimized for modern browsers. It's more then twice the work to create a site that works for IE8 and new browsers.:)
