Anyone able to help, been pulling my hair out for the last hour

Client wants their website to work in IE7 (solicitor so stuck in the dark ages) and I cannot get the drop down to work. I have tried everything I can think of.

Website is http://www.nj67hn8.randall-payne.co.uk/

Works fine in every other browser except IE7

The Stylesheet is http://www.nj67hn8.randall-payne.co.uk/wp-content/themes/rand-payne1/ie.css

Try specifying this doctype at the top of the html document: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

Good call. The fact that you haven’t declared a doctype is a significant issue, especially in IE.

Yup, and pseudo class :hover can’t be applied on elements that are not anchor in IE7 without a doctype. In this case the :hover is applied to list item (#navigation #nav li:hover ul) – it just ignores it.
