    Intermittently based on certain users the RadMenu will display as a sorted list instead of the expected behavior.  The RadMenu is in a ASP.NET user control (.ascx) packaged as a SharePoint webpart.  We are currently used a trial version of the 2009 Q2 controls.  It seems that the controls can't find the style sheets.  I'm using the "Default" skin without modification.  The behavior happens with both IE 7 & 8.

    Attached are 2 screenshots that show a "bad" menu and a "good" menu.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello Rusty,

    Maybe you've hit the notorious limitation of Internet Explorer - it can load up to 32 CSS files and if there are more, they will be ingnored. This problem can occur in case you are using a theme with a lot of CSS (when you register the theme, automatically all the CSS is declared) or you have declared a lot of RadControls on the page. If you are using a theme you can test my assumption by removing it and test whether the RadTabStrip CSS will load correctly.

    If this is the case I suggest to either use a RadStyleSheetManager which will combine all the CSS on the page or reduce the CSS files used.

    All the best,
