can you please post your rendered code.

It is probably line 48 in your code that needs to be changed from

.menu ul li ul
{
      height: auto;
      background-color: #333333;
      width: auto;
      z-index: 99;
}

to

.menu ul li ul
{
      height: auto;
      background-color: #333333;
      width: 200px;
      z-index: 99;
}

Please post your rendered html.  What do you mean by absolute width?


.menu ul li ul li
{
      width: 200px;
      white-space: nowrap;
}
http://jsbin.com/iwuqiy/1/edit
  <div class="menu">
<ul>
<li><a  href="#">item</a></li>
<li><a  href="#">item</a>
<ul>
<li><a  href="#">sub</a></li>
<li><a  href="#">sub</a></li>
<li><a  href="#">sub</a></li>

</ul>
</li>
</ul>
</div>
