    You can check my "MENU" option at: http://www.jaquelinegirardi.com.br
    My menu looks very fine on Firefox, BUT at IE all the cats are shown outsite the select bar.
    What can be wrong?

    Thanks a lot!!! ;)

    Every thing looks good here, maybe clean your browser cookies as IE displayed the same as FF

    That´s soooo weird. Still looks the same. I tried to reboot the computer after cleaning up my cache. Can be some configuration at my own computer?
    The "arquivo" (archives) looks fine, and it´s drop down too.

    No, it's showing incorrectly in my IE, also. I'm sorry that I can't think of what's causing it. I don't know much about tables :(

    I'm pretty sure having a select tag inside a select tag is wrong... At least it is confusing to IE.

    Yes... another friend told it looks incorrectly as well! :(
    That´s the way I'm using it:

    <form name="catform" action="/index.php">
    <select name="cat" onchange="submit(this.form)">
    <option value=''>Escolha</option>
    <?php dropdown_cats('', '', 'NAME'); ?>
    </select>
    </form>

    At my firefox it works BEAUTIFULY! I hate IE. :(

    My bad, I just woke up, I was looking outside the box, everything was containded within the container but in IE all secondary choices you can not select from the drop down.

    Take a look at the code surrounding your drop down it has to be there

    I see you have option value used, I am not sure but it could be that IE does not support this, it is non compliant in many ways, try doing an unordered list ul

    My old "theme" had dropdowns with that sort of "default" value that shows on top... If no one comes up with a solution I'll check how I did it when I get home.

    Ok, thank you Minna!!
    Maybe I will try to install that drop_down_exclude plugin and see how it works. :)

    People, nevermind! I just changed it to another way, with a "View" button, and now it´s working! ;)
    Thanks everybody who did take a look at it for me!

    I used that! It could be a good idea. It adds (as an option) the hierarchy of categories that standard WP is missing at the moment.

    Minna, I looked everywhere to the hierarchy option, but it's possible only if I use "wp_list_cat".
    Now, I´m using like this:
    <form action="<?php echo $PHP_SELF ?>" method="get">
    <?php dropdown_cats(); ?>
    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="view" />
    </form>
    I would love to hide the childs or at least to show them above the "parent", but it seems not to work.
    Anyway, people can read! lol This is my minor problem at this time, just aesthetic. ;)

    I meant the drop down exclude plugin has that option. I could be horribly horribly wrong though...

    [edit] Here's a link to the drop down plugin I meant, and at least the version 1.2 had an ability to make hierarchic cateogry drop down and 1.3 is an updated version to work in WP1.5
