Experts,

When you hover over one of the links in the drop down menu on this site, in firefox it cuts off part of the button, but in internet explorer it renders it properly. What gives?

It's different in IE6 than it is in IE7 and non-IE browsers because you're using the ugly hack that puts conditional comments and <table>s inside the <a>s of your menu.

You're missing a "(" from this rule:

.menu2 li:hover > a.top_link {color:#fff; background: urlimages/buttons/button4.gif) no-repeat;}

change it to this:

.menu2 li:hover > a.top_link {color:#fff; background: url(images/buttons/button4.gif) no-repeat;}

Why did you not do the following anyway?
.menu2 li a.top_link:hover,
.menu2 li:hover > a.top_link {color:#fff; background: url(images/buttons/button4.gif) no-repeat;}
.menu2 li a.top_link:hover span,
.menu2 li:hover > a.top_link span {background:url(images/buttons/button4.gif) no-repeat right top;}
.menu2 li a.top_link:hover span.down,
.menu2 li:hover > a.top_link span.down {background:url(images/buttons/button4a.gif) no-repeat right top;}

What's the advantage of implementing those six lines of code?

It's more efficient. You aren't repeating the same rules with different selectors.
