ASP Menu bug in IE8 and Chrome

Well it turns out there is a bug in the ASP Menu control that stops the dynamic part of the menu rendering when the user rolls their mouse over a static part of the menu.

It appears the problem is to do with the way the control checks if the browser has javascript enabled, and it decides both IE 8 and Chrome don't, hence nothing is shown to the user.

The only work arounds I've come across are:

Obviously we cannot expect our users to have to follow special procedures to view our site, and with the only other solution being a hack, we'd rather go with something else completely...
