Open in new window

I have CSS for an HTML drop down menu that would usually go in the upper right hand side of the window.  

I need to move it to the bottom left of the screen.  What do I need to change in the CSS to get the menus to drop-up instead of down off the screen?

    The following is the line that sets the position of the dropdown:

    #menu li ul { position:absolute; left:-10px; top:0px; margin-top:45px; width:150px; line-height:16px; background-color:#172322; color:#0395CC; /* for IE */ display:none;

    Open in new window

    Try changing top:0px to bottom:0px - you may need to adjust the dimensions for precise positioning.
