Hierarchical Menus Ver. 3 - Addendum X-1 (v3.10.1)
fix for IE5 image positioning

This column introduces a new version of the hierarchical menu script. All information is valid at the time of writing. New browser versions released after publication may not behave as outlined. The script is constantly under revision, with new features added, problems fixed and new browser versions addressed.
Read this column, and future columns, to learn how we built the menu script.
Use the most recent version of the script, always available in HierMenus Central.

This addendum deals with a fix to the Hierarchical Menus Version 3 script for proper "more" image positioning in Internet Explorer 5, for Windows and Macintosh.
You must be familiar with the script to appreciate the discussion.

Welcome to the tenth-and-some maintenance release of Hierarchical Menus, Version 3.

Version 3.09 introduced IE5 Mac support, but it also introduced a problem with image positioning. This was due solely to an oversight on my part. Apologies to all, and special thanks to those who alerted us as to the problem.

The Problem

Menu Example:

If you are using IE5 you will have displayed a large top-level menu with wonky positioning of the "more" images. If not, check out the screenshots below:
