I strait CSS for my menus.
You need to go here: http://www.xs4all.nl/~peterned/csshover.html
and download the csshover.htc file, and include it in the same directory as your css file.

In your css file or style tag, put: http://www.htmldog.com/articles/suckerfish/bones/ (view source)

body { behavior:url("csshover.htc"); }            /*makes any :hover class work with IE */
ul { /* all lists */
      padding: 0;
      margin: 0;
      list-style: none;}

li { /* all list items */
      float: left;
      position: relative;
      width: 10em;

li ul { /* second-level lists */
      display: none;
      position: absolute;
      top: 1em;
      left: 0;

li>ul { /* to override top and left in browsers other than IE, which will position to the top right of the containing li, rather than bottom left */
      top: auto;
      left: auto;

li:hover ul, li.over ul { /* lists nested under hovered list items */
      display: block;
