SPRY conflict with "remote linking"

  • # December 4, 2009 at 4:21 pm

    I’m having trouble trying to implement the second remote linking freebie from this site into a page that also contains a SPRY menu bar-

    http://lanitrock.com/index2.html

    There are multiple css files
    One for the spry menu bar which the code is:

    Code:
    @charset “UTF-8″;

    /* SpryMenuBarHorizontal.css – version 0.6 – Spry Pre-Release 1.6.1 */

    /* The outermost container of the Menu Bar, an auto width box with no margin or padding */
    ul.MenuBarHorizontal
    {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    list-style-type: none;
    font-size: 100%;
    cursor: default;
    width: auto;
    }
    /* Set the active Menu Bar with this class, currently setting z-index to accomodate IE rendering bug: http://therealcrisp.xs4all.nl/meuk/IE-zindexbug.html */
    ul.MenuBarActive
    {
    z-index: 1000;
    }
    /* Menu item containers, position children relative to this container and are a fixed width */
    ul.MenuBarHorizontal li

    font-size: 100%;
    position: relative;
    text-align: left;
    cursor: pointer;
    width: 8em;
    float: left;
    }
    /* Submenus should appear below their parent (top: 0) with a higher z-index, but they are initially off the left side of the screen (-1000em) */
    ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul
    {

    padding: 0;
    list-style-type: none;
    font-size: 100%;
    z-index: 1020;
    cursor: default;
    width: 8.2em;
    position: absolute;

    }
    /* Submenu that is showing with class designation MenuBarSubmenuVisible, we set left to auto so it comes onto the screen below its parent menu item */
    ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible

    margin: -5% 0 0 95%;
    }
    /* Submenu that is showing with class designation MenuBarSubmenuVisible, we set left to 0 so it comes onto the screen */
    ul.MenuBarHorizontal ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible
    {
    left: auto;
    top: 0;
    }

    /*******************************************************************************

    background-image: url(SpryMenuBarDownHover.gif);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;

    }

    /*******************************************************************************

    /* HACK FOR IE: to make sure the sub menus show above form controls, we underlay each submenu with an iframe */
    ul.MenuBarHorizontal iframe
    {

    z-index: 1010;
    filter:alpha(opacity:0.1);
    }
    /* HACK FOR IE: to stabilize appearance of menu items; the slash in float is to keep IE 5.0 from parsing */
    @media screen, projection
    {
    ul.MenuBarHorizontal li.MenuBarItemIE
    {
    display: inline;
    float: left;
    background: #FFF;
    }
    }

    and there is the css for the remote linking:

    Code:
    /*

    */

    * { margin: 0; padding: 0; }
    body { font: 12px Helvetica, Sans-Serif; }

    #page-wrap { width: 600px; margin: 50px auto; }

    h1 { font-size: 30px; letter-spacing: -1px; margin: 0 0 20px 0; }

    .people { position: relative; }
    a { text-decoration: none; color: #222; display: block;
    margin: 0 0 0 270px; outline: none; padding: 5px; }
    a img { border: 1px solid #ccc; }
    a:hover { background: #ffefcd; }
    a .name { font: 18px Georgia, Serif; }
    a:hover .name { color: #900; font-weight: bold; }
    a:hover img { border: 5px solid #222; margin: -4px; }
    a .photo { display: block; position: absolute; width: 125px; height: 125px; }
    #toby .photo { top: 0; left: 0; }
    #tom .photo { top: 0; left: 134px; }
    #gail .photo { top: 134px; left: 0; }
    #padma .photo { top: 134px; left: 134px; }

    something between these is conflicting and making the spry menu bar appear messy.
    The spry menu bar should look like this:

    I know that there is a conflict between the SPRY CSS file and the style.css file above, but I don’t know enough to discern what is causing the conflict. Would greatly appreciate the help!
    Thank you!!
