the file is http://www.trevaskisconsulting.com/index2.html 

the html code it relates to is
<ul id="boxes">
      <li class="box01"><a href="building-surveying.html"><h2 class="style2">Building <span class="smaller">Surveying</span></h2></a>
      <ul class="boxy1">
      <li>text here</li>
      <li>text here</li>
      <li class="nobullets"><a href="building-surveying.html">more on Building Surveying</a></li>
      </ul></li>
