You do not have a doctype defines appropriately.  Not sure if this is causing your issue, but try one of these.  If you are not using propper XHTML then use the transitional one...

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

oh, I just noticed you have your li set up with float: left;  This is your problem.  It's in your reset.css file.  Remove this and your <br/>s will show up.

use the class that the menu is in instead.

so like this:

.navigation ul li
{
float: left;
}

this specifies only to float the ones in the navigation menu, since the div they are in has a class of navigation.  This will leave all the other lists unaffected.

When I added:
.navigation ul li
{
float: left;
} and removed the line from reset.css the menu dropped to a list.

oooh, it looks like you already have a declaration in your stylesheet.css

#content .navigation ul li
{
list-style: none outside none;
padding: 0 0 0 10px;
}

so add float:left to the above and delete it in the li declaration you had...

talking about a sub-menu?  I'd definitely start a new one.  I have not done that with css.  I actually use a bastardized version of what dreamweaver puts in.  It's not very simple and uses a lot of javascript.  I know there are cleaner solutions that people have with just css, so you might have better luck with posting for one of them to help out.  Some day I'll spend the time to implement their solutions as well.  LOL

You have this:
#footer ul {
  color: #7D8083;
  float: left;
  font-size: 11px;
}

But you'll also need:

#footer ul li
{
float: left;
}

let me know if it's still broken after that...
