The drop down menu works in FF, IE7 but not in IE6. The CSS is pretty complicated. Any suggestion on how to fix it will be appreciated. suggestions leading to final fix of the problem will be much more appreciated.

Thanks,

It doesn't work in FF 2 either -- the submenu on each mouseover spreads all the way across the page -- it is under the other main menu items, but still incorrectly formatted.  In IE6, the submenus don't appear at all.

You say the CSS is "pretty complicated".  This is likely your trouble, not being able to keep track of changes.

You failed to mention this was created by drupal?  In general terms, you cannot add CSS to try to override the drupal styling, you have to change the page template and add to the drupal CSS to get it to work.  So from what I see, if this is output from a drupal database and you have attempted to style it after the fact, I would say -- give up -- you are not going to get it to work.

Design your own menu and CSS from scratch, or edit drupal's template and CSS and only that.

The following post has a great and clear video on how to create a navigational menu. This might help to build your own instead of the one generated by Drupal.
Or it might give you some clue about what to change/add to the CSS to fix your problems.
