IE8 skips .gif frames when using rollover script

I'm not overly sure of why this may be the case, but you could try using a css :hover attribute as a method. I have a feeling it may be to do with the images being pre-loaded, but I'm not sure about this.

It's because he has used a JS script from Dynamic Drive that is not sufficiently robust cross-platform. There are many jQuery plugins for menu transition effects that would be much more robust and just as easy to implement.

(Incidentally, :hover is a pseudo-class, not an attribute. Attributes are used in HTML.)

thanks, ill check out jQuery for a cross-platform script.
