Recent Questions Dom Tree KmlQ: Your product is great. I do have one question for you however.
Right now the dropdown (subitem) menus appear based on the smShowPause variable, and disappear based on the smHidePause variable. It is sometimes awkward for users to mouse off the subitem menu that has dropped down, only to have it still hanging there. Reducing the smHidePause variable is not an option because then the menu often disappears before a user has selected a menu option.
The ideal solution is the have the subitem menu recognize when the user has moused off the menu, and then disappear. Is this possible?
if not, I definitely suggest incorporating it into your next build!

var texpandBtnW = "";
var texpandBtnH = "";
var texpandBtnAlign = "left";
Q: I had to put the site live and had taken out the white border. I've used one of the better elements of your application and put a second data file (data1.js) and a sample page up that recreates the aberrant behavior in IE and the missing border-bottom in Firefox and Opera.
In IE, the entire border of each element has about a 5px white border until you mouseover each element. Then the border-bottom (1px solid white) shows correctly.
In both Firefox and Opera the border doesn't show at all.
A: Try to write so:
var itemStyles = [
