still further 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.

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-a-third maintenance release of Hierarchical Menus, Version 3.

In our previous two maintenance releases, Versions 3.10.1 and 3.10.2, we fixed problems with the "more" image positioning for IE5. It seems that we didn't finish the job. There is still a minor problem which can be easily fixed. Our thanks to John Fullerton for the heads-up and fix testing.

If you are using IE5, you will have displayed top-level menus similar to the screenshots below:

Left Menu - Good PositioningRight Menu - Bad Positioning

In Version 3.10.2, we fixed the item double-line problem. The left menu is fine and it has a double-line item. Why does the right menu have a problem?
