If you use CSS dropdown menus, you probably know you need to use a hack to make the drop down work in Internet Explorer 6 (IE6). A briliant hack was created by Peter Nederlof (you can download it at http://www.xs4all.nl/~peterned). I have used it successfully for a couple years, but when I loaded a website onto a new host, the css dropdown menus didn’t work.
For the most part, the csshover.htc hack works, but it’s fussy about the file path you put into you css file; to simplify, the path need to be an absolute path; eg, from the root of your web server; do not make it relative to the css file. Below is the code you need to add to the
bodytag in your main .css file
Once you get the correct path, you can enjoy css dropdowns in IE 6. But this setup doesn’t work on all web servers. Some server do not have a mime type set for .htc file, and, as a result, your csshover.htc file will not work. You can easily fix this if your host allows .htaccess files. Insert the following code into your .htaccess file and upload it to your server. That should fix the problem:
AddType text/x-component .htc
If you don’t have a .htaccess file, create a text file and name it .htaccess and then insert that code above.
