Locate this ul under its parent li cross browser

Please view this page http://www.3marulanway.com.au/
the sub menu showing needs to be under its parent list item Questions/Answers. even if I re size the window.

I included the html code and the css code below

Hi sami,
Please try modifying masterStyle.css with the two css classes as attached below

Add position:relative to ul#menu li, and add left:0 to ul#menu li ul.subMenu

ul#menu li { list-style: none;position:relative;}
ul#menu li ul.subMenu {text-align: left; position: absolute; width: 13em; z-index: 3; background-color: #666; vertical-align: bottom;left:0; }

Thanks for that.

It is almost there. i.e. the subMenu is not under the parent. it is covering the parent. the parent needs to be shown.
That happens in IE.
Try adding a top position to ul#menu li ul.subMenu  as below

ul#menu li ul.subMenu {text-align: left; position: absolute; width: 13em; z-index: 3; background-color: #666; vertical-align: bottom;left:0;top:28px;}
