ASP Horizontal menu with Vertical sub menus?

I am new to ASP development.  Is it possible to use the menu control in a VS 2010 ASP web project to show a horizontal main menu with some vertical sub menus?

Yes, but if you're using IE 8, you may have a problem displaying the submenus.

see the KB article from MS.

rawinnlnx9 - The first reference explains the difference between dynamic vs static menus but does not show how to use both within the same menu.  The second reference uses a binding source which is not what I want to accomplish.  Attached is my code.  Any other ideas?

Yes, that solved the problem.  It is a bug in IE8 having to do with the asp:menu control.
