Subject: [opencms-dev] css menu problem (with htc file)

Hi all,

I've integrated a css scroll menu in a jsp page, but I can't used this
menu with internet explorer 6.0 (no problem with FireFox 1.0). I've
tested without OpenCMS (with a simple html file) and it functioned?!...
After many research a think Open CMS can't used .htc file (this file
make scroll effect). Why I can't use .htc file in OpenCMS ?

Thanks a lot for your help

Mike the little French guy

Notes: here is .jsp and .htc file:

//--------------------------------------------------------- index.jsp
<%@page buffer="none" session="false" import="java.util.*,
org.opencms.frontend.templateone.*" %><%

// initialize action element to access the API CmsTemplateStyleSheet cms
= new CmsTemplateStyleSheet(pageContext,
request, response);

String img = cms.link("/sites/default/TestMenu/dropmenu.gif");
String htc = cms.link("/sites/default/TestMenu/csshover.htc");
<title>Project 6</title>
<style type="text/css">
