    resolved [RESOLVED] :hover substitute command for iPad dropdown menu

    I was modifying the menu code from post #3 of http://www.webdeveloper.com/forum/sh...99#post1260599

    It seems to work fine in all browsers as it is labeled "CROSS BROWSER DROPDOWN MENU",
    except for the built-in browser in the ipad tablet.

    It appears that only two of the 1st level choices (HOME and GALLERY) actually display the dropdown.
    I believe it is a problem with the li:hover or li.hover commands in the <style> section.

    Is there a change that can be applied so that it continues to work "cross browser"
    but will also work as an iPad menu?

    Note: I would like to avoid using a JQuery solution, if possible.

    Here is the offending code...
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML>
    <html>
    <head>
    <title> Nice Horizontal Menu </title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

    Found my own answer...

    Substitute
    <li>About Us

    with
    <li><a href="#">About Us</a>

    Same for
    <li>Services
    <li>Products
    <li>Contact Us

    Just add the anchor around the text description
    <li><a href="#">Services</a>
    <li><a href="#">Products</a>
    <li><a href="#">Contact Us</a>

    Still hovers on desktop and laptop computers.
    Activates drop-down display with tap on tablets.
