The problem is as follows: I've made a multi-page website for my club. It uses CSS for a nice, clean menu. Both HTML and CSS pass the W3C validator. M$IE doesn't support CSS, not even in the latest versions, so visitors using M$IE are completely lost. To resolve this I've made a dropdown menu (in HTML with the form attribute) and added it to the bottom of a page but frankly, it looks rubbish... I had the idea to use a script to determine the browser and based on that, either show the visitor the CSS menu (/M$IE) or the dropdown-menu (M$IE only). Unfortunately, having searched the web-thingy, nothing suitable came up (or I didn't look in the right dark corners Wink). Most stuff was either PHP or Javascript based, somethings I know very little (Rolling Eyes) about...

Any pointers are appreciated!

Try the drop down menus at Son of Suckerfish Dropdowns or the originals at Suckerfish Dropdowns for cross browser compatible menus that also meet accessibility requirements.
