A template, "Buttons", that has arrows indicating submenus works just fine with HTML4 but with HTML5 the menu line height increases and the buttons are not centered vertically.

Any thoughts on a solution?

TIA,
Tom

Hi Bill,

Thank you for the reply.

I've decided to just drop use of SoThink DHTML for now on new projects. Apparent HTML5 incompatibility is a problem but what drives me slightly nuts is that I have to work in my PC environment on my Mac to generate the code and then work in my Mac environment where my Dreamweaver program runs since there is no Mac SoThink DHTML extension. I have other tools including HTML5 now which I can use to build menus.

If you should want to see the problem,
0. Using Adobe Dreamweaver CS 5.5 in Mac OSX 10.7.3
1. Create an HTML4 template page
2. Create an HTML5 template page
3. Using SoThink DHTML 9.70 build 943 in Microsoft Windows 7 using VMWare Fusion 4.1.1
4. Generate the codes for the Button menu from template.
5. Preview and see the arrows correctly displayed and the button heights correct.
6. Publish in turns to the HTML4 and HTML5 templates projects
7. Back in Dreamweaver, view the templates using LiveView and/or via a browser
8. HTML4 version displays correctly and HTML5 version has height too great and arrow off center.
I hope you can follow the above :-)

Cheers from Houston, TX, USA
Tom

Could be a browser issue -- how HTML5/CSS compliant it really is. Does the error show up in ALL browsers?? Just curious. . .

Hi Tom and Mike,

It appears to be a problem with the HTML5 rendering of the image used for “Products” and “Download”. With a DOCTYPE declaration other than <!DOCTYPE html> (or no DOCTYPE declaration) the menu images render correctly. I hope Sothink will soon correct any HTML5 incompatabilities in a program update.

Regards,

Bill
