IE7 programmers need to meet me in a dark alley.

Anyone do any web programming that have good IE7 hacks for allowing Spry menus to show up properly in IE7?

My new pages work great in IE6, IE8, FireFox, & Safari. But IE7 won't show content and I'm boxed into a corner.

I've tried posting in a couple of forums for help, but I guess I don't know the right secret handshake to get acknowledged.


(the new page) The Loans & Cards page is where I first discovered the IE7 issue.

I know nothing about Spry, but I am a search fiend. Please excuse me if you've found these already!

Did you know you have a style tag encasing one of your javascript tags?

I did catch that just a little while ago and was cleaning it up. I think I've been looking at it too long that I missed it.

Most IE-related problems I had as far as compatibility went were with the "display" tag, and with the heirarchy for defining some objects in css, or in java referring to said objects.

Usually where java and ie7 interact, it is easier to change the way the style sheets are worded, than to try to change the javascript to refer to the object for both browsers.

I don't have CS3, so I can't just give the spry menu thinger a try and see - I did however find a related discussion here:
