I thought that would be really cool to use the onContentReady, but IE doesn’t like how that modifies the DOM while the page is rendering. Or something. What I actually needed to do was
YAHOO.util.Event.addListener(window, "load", YAHOO.thesergents.loadmenu);
which waits until the window load function is triggered after the page has loaded. That’s cool. So at least that cleared up the annoying error. Now the submenus stopped working, but I’ll live with that. That was enough personal hacktime for one day. Time to get back to work.
