          It looks like you used the HTML code that Fireworks produced. That's your first problem, as that code is fragile. It's only intended to be used for mockups and prototypes. Your second problem is that every new browser improves on it's CSS support (or doesn't) and what worked before (even by accident) may or may not work in a new browser.

          When you go to build your site, you should build a solid one in Dreamweaver. If you don't know enough HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to build the kind of menu system you want, then you should buy a solid, professional one. The menus at Project VII ( www.projectseven.com) are commonly recommended. The other advantage to using a professional menu is that it is designed by people with a full understanding of CSS and it is tested in multiple browsers. I'm sure that if the Project VII menus have any incompatibilities with IE8, they will be addressed quickly.
