Default Can't read text on subitems in ASP.NET 3.5 by Spaanjaar

Beginning ASP.NET 3.5 BY Imar page 248 top paragraph first sentence.

The reference states "Note that you can't read the text on the subitems."

In the Chapter examples and the Final website in code sources the text on the subitems can't be read.

I have tried a number of things to reslove this in my own code with no results.

Since the downloaded code for the the chapters and the final website in the downloaded code all do not show the submenus I thought that perhaps my environment was at fault. But I tried the source code examples in two separate .Net environments without success.

I am a beginning programmer and value this book highly. So far out of 5 books that I have used this is by far the best for this subject.
I am on the second pass through the book and this is the only problem I have not been able to resolve.

Please help.

Hi there,

Check out the errata for this book or this post: IE8 and the Menu

It's an issue with ASP.NET / IE 8 that surfaced after the book was published. There's a patch available to solve the problem.
