Ive got a strange issue where the divs are duplicated up.

What I don't understand is why its duplicated, when I hover over the element, I get the child loading correctly, but with duplicated div:-
Issue
If I remove the line:-
left: -20px; 

Open in new window

The div is not duplicated, but I want it to come back a little to the left when hovered.

I don't understand why its duplicated :-S

I've put the page at jsfiddle as an example of whats happening.

Can anyone advise?

 <div id="divMenu">
    <div style="width:100%; height:35px; background-color: #849CC2;">
      <ul id="menu">
        <li><a href="#">Item 1</a>
          <div>
          Drop down Content
          </div> <-- was still open, I closed them.
        </li>
        <li><a href="#">Item 2</a>
          <div>
          Drop down Content
          </div> <-- was still open, I closed them.
        </li>
      </ul>
    </div>
    <div id="divContents" style="width:100%; height:200px; background-color: #DD8889; overflow-y: scroll; overflow-x: hidden;">
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
    </div>
</div>

Open in new window


the div codes under your menu weren't closed.  Two open sets.  I closed them and it worked fine.
 <div>
Drop down Content
<div>

Open in new window

needed to be:
 <div>
Drop down Content
</div>

Open in new window


here's the fixed version:

I had looked at them, and on the tutorial site I followed to get that part working, it doesn't close them. But it works now in the complete side of things, so :-)

Thank you
