                    <a href="Templates/signage.htm"

                    Your links are pointing within the Templates folder.

                    In the HTML code for your TEMPLATE file, change each of these links to look
                    like this -

                    <a href="../signage.htm"

                    and you should be OK.

                    By the way, playing with these menus and DW templates is dangerous. There
                    are much better and must less potentially troublesome ways to do such menus.

                    By the way #2, you have used a Flash headline on these pages, and that Flash
                    is being trapped by the recent IE6 updates. You can fix that if you are
                    using DW8, or by using this suggested method -

                      Thank you I will use your fix while i try to learn how to rebuild dropdown without fireworks when (if) I can acheive this I will replace fw version with newer version.

                      Thanks again,
