My page is working in Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera, but the pull-down menu in IE8 is disappearing when the "Main" is hovered,  and in IE7 the pull-downs are not displaying in the correct place.

Change the javascript code as shown below.
<script>
    	$(document).ready(function(){
		$(this).find(".menu_area").show();
		$("#featured > ul").tabs({fx:{opacity: "toggle"}}).tabs("rotate", 5000, true);
	
 	
	$(".FaceBookBtn").hover(function() {
		$(this).attr("src","images/FaceBookLarge.png");
			}, function() {
		$(this).attr("src","images/FaceBook.png");
	  });

	$(".RSSBtn").hover(function() {
		$(this).attr("src","images/RSSLarge.png");
			}, function() {
		$(this).attr("src","images/RSS.png");
	  });


	$(".TwitterBtn").hover(function() {
		$(this).attr("src","images/TwitterLarge.png");
			}, function() {
		$(this).attr("src","images/Twitter.png");
	  });


	$(".YouTubeBtn").hover(function() {
		$(this).attr("src","images/YouTubeLarge.png");
			}, function() {
		$(this).attr("src","images/YouTube.png");
	  });
    });
  </script>

The javascript is for the buttons at the very top.  The problem is the dropdown bars "Main  Documentation Programs Consumers Companies Producers"  which is done in CSS.

In IE7 the dropdowns are not expanding in the correct place directly beneath the category, and in IE8 the dropdown is disappearing if the mouse is over the "Mai"  part of "Main".

Seems to be working fine in IE7 and 8.

Did you fix this already?
