Description

The menus appear at the top of the page and are similar to the Webreference
Hiermenus, apart from the fact they don't work in Gecko based browsers. The site
does display all the options contained in the menus elsewhere on the page
however, which isn't too bad. Given that Hiermenus work well in Gecko based
browsers, this appears fixable by the hosts.

From their source code:

        <tr bgcolor=#999999 id=Home 
        onMouseOut="MouseOut(HomeText,Home);arrowOff('Home')" 
        onMouseOver="MouseOver(HomeText,Home);arrowOn('Home')" 
        style="CURSOR: hand" valign=top> 

....SNIP.....

        <a class=MenuText id=HomeText 
        href="http://www.mlhsbc.co.uk/default.asp">Home</a>

the onmouseover/mouseout:

      function MouseOver(id,rowid) {
	rowid.style.background='#000066';id.style.color='#FFFFFF';
      }
      function MouseOut(id,rowid) {
	rowid.style.background='#999999';id.style.color='#000066';
      }

You CANNOT do someid.style or someid.anything.  You need to grab the object node
first by doing idobject = document.getElementById(id); then you can do
idobject.style.color or background or whatever.

Confirming.  Remarkably, no layers are involved though (AFAICT)

ML.com in the US is aware of  this and working on fixing. Their update should
make international sites work as well.
