Can somebody say me what's wrong with this? In IE6 it's not working right. When i hover the menu, normally there should be shown a backgroundimage with white text, but in IE6 it doesn't.  http://rawfoodweb.com/com/sites/all/themes/fervens/style.css and the menu you can see at http://rawfoodweb.com/com/

Please have a look in firefox or IE7 to see how it's normal.

IE6 only supports :hover on anchors (eg: a:hover) - therefore this will not work in IE6:

#primary li:hover, #primary li.active, #primary li.active-trail {
  background: url(images/button-orange-1.png) no-repeat left;

You could try using this script to fix your issue:
