Have this problem in Safari -- on some pages, the menu links are on top of each other. I wanted to find out about some employment opportunities on a web site, so I placed the pointer over 'about' and a menu appeared, and as I moved the pointer down towards 'employment', the menu disappeared and opened up the menu for the link 'family life' (it's a diocesan website ) and its various choices. If I open up the page in Windows (I'm running boot camp) I don't have that problem -- All the menu links are side by side and aren't on top of each other. Can anyone tell me what's going on and how I can fix this in Safari? I have OSX Leopard with the latest update, so I think it's 10.5.2 or .3

You can't "fix" it. The webmaster who created the page more than likely created it for Internet Explorer. You can try using Firefox 3 for OS X. Firefox has a plug in which can emulate IE for those troublesome pages which work with IE only.
