    My verticle Spry menu will not work in Internet Explorer

    naterothstein

      I know a lot of people have posted about similar issues, and I've researched multiple "solutions" on multiple forums for something that will work, but nothing has solved the problem so far.

       

      Here is a link to the prototype homepage: http://www.abrasivesales.com/indexnew.html

       

      Everything looks great on my mac when opened in Firefox or Safari, however when opened on Internet Explorer on a PC, the menu ceases to be verticle, instead extending horizontally past the end of the screen.  Also, the menu items adopt a white background color, and none of the submenu items will appear when their parent menu item is rolled over.

       

      PLEASE HELP....this issue has kept me from launching the site for a week now, and my superiors are wondering why this problem is taking me longer than it did to build the homepage in the first place, so I'd love to look like less of an idiot.

       

      I assuming this is a CSS issue, so I've posted my CSS code below:
