floating menu problem when using tables instead of layers - Macromedia Dreamweaver

"Layers" are compatible with all v4+ browsers, but like any other tool, you must know how to use them. The irony is this - if you want to support browsers lower than v4, then you'd have to remove much of the js on which your menu system is built in addition to removing the 'layers.'

    First of all, this is really an urban legend. "Layers" are compatible with
    all v4+ browsers, but like any other tool, you must know how to use them.
    The irony is this - if you want to support browsers lower than v4, then
    you'd have to remove much of the js on which your menu system is built in
    addition to removing the 'layers.' Then of course, since the menu system
    you are using is built on layers anyhow.... well, you can see the tautology
    here.

    The problem you are having with incorporating tables into your page are due
    to 2 things primarily -

    1. An incredibly overly complex and unstable table structure on the page (I
    find 8 rowspans and 12 colspans), including many completely empty cells
    (which may in fact be shimmed by other cells in the table - I didn't look)
    and many cell width/height values in those empty cells (the width/height
    values are invalid HTML and are not reliable for structuring tables).

    2. The menu system you are using has been invoked within a table cell, in
    effect putting layers into tables - a known cause of page wonkiness -

    <td valign="bottom"><script language="JavaScript"
    src="new/awjsmenugold10trial.js" type="text/JavaScript">


    <!-- PLEASE INSERT THESE CODES BETWEEN <BODY> ... </BODY> TAGS! -->
    <!-- START Javascript Menu Builder PIXELATE 1.0 config parameters. Don't
    modify these codes by yourself -->
    <script type='text/javascript' src='awjsmenugold10trial.js'></script>

    To cut to the chase, here's what I would do -

    1. I'd rebuild the page in *stable* tables or positioned page elements
    2. I'd use a better (MUCH better) menu system -
