Ok... so I found a css menu generator and the menu looks great, but unsure of why I can't get it to work... here's the code...

<!--

<style media="all" type="text/css">@import "/menu/menu_style.css";</style>
<div class="menu">
<ul>
<li><a id="current" href="http://dons-web-design.info" target="_self" >Web Design</a>

<li><a href="http://dons-web-design.info/marketing..." target="_self">Website Directories</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>
</div>

-->

it makes the menu into an outline instead of a menu with drop downs like it's suppose to be.

I did that in excel and then took a screen shot and made an image out of it.

Hello Donald, just coming in for a little. Looked at your screen shot on my monitor the black text is a little 'fuzzy'. Just thought you may like to know that.
good luck with the menu !

It also comes in a bit fuzzy for me too. You may want to consider embedding your excel file or using a table generator to create your table. You can also try creating your chart in MS Publisher and save as a picture file.

yea, maybe... I know that embedding it as a excel file isn't going to work. The version of excel I'm currently using doesn't have the save as web page, filtered option. I like some of the things I can do in Excel, that's why I use it. The only way I found to put it up there was a screen shot. But maybe I can find an alternative.

Hi Donald

You can save your Excel as a webpage file. You can also open up MS Publisher (if you have it) and paste into a blank page. Then, right-click on your table and select "Save as picture". This will save your table as a .png file.

I've never saved as a webpage file, does that do the same thing as webpage, flitered?

OMG... lol

remember that suggestion I tried changing the path directory from menu to resources and Sanja even agreed? LMAO, I never tried changing it back from resources to menu... and that did the trick. However, I'm confused by that. Is that Yola's path or the menu generator's path? Because yola's path isn't "menu"!
