I've spent the last couple of days trying to get this menu working as I want. I've read through this thread pretty much completely and I know there's issues with IE6 and some have given up and just accepted the fact that IE6 is sh1te and will probably continue to plague us for years to come.
But... all I want is to have the category text link to have a little 10px margin. If I put a 10px padding-left into into div#nav-cat li a, then that works fine on everything else but not ie6 which increases the horizontal size of the sidebox and means that the pop up menu disappears as you approach it with the mouse.
All I want is to not have the text hugging the left margin...
Is there absolutely no way to just make that happen? After that all I want to do is to insert images as the backgrounds and I'm good to go. I'm fairly sure that's easy enough.
