make menu work in chrome url go through to page

Regarding this navigation menu:
http://jsfiddle.net/dXB37/4/

question:

under the <ul> with the id of #dropdown1

There is a <li> <a href> link with the scr:
http://www.thesearchengineoptimisationcompany.co.uk/

how can i make this link go to this url? and not just show the name of the link.

Also the class .current is over the top of the links in google chrome web browser. This makes the links not click-able when you get down to a sub menus. - i have tried changing the z-index and changed the width but this doesn't seem to fix it.

one other thing: how can i make all the links the same width? when i set a width of 200px !important on:
 .gallery a

nothing happens?

I'm guessing its possible a layering issue since your code is completely invalid.
You cannot have a <UL> followed by multiple divs and then have the <LI>'s inside nested divs and expect any browser to know what it is supposed to be doing.

hmm its a funny one.  sure.. usings css3 rotates is easy but i would have to manually make each li be a certan degree different from the last one.  the javascript does the calculations automatically even with more or less li tags. if i could dynamically autmate this process using css3 then yes that would work.

You can still use javascript to calculate the degree then apply the style directly to each element.
The only thing with this is you would have to add all the markup for different browsers or detect the browser and apply the correct prefix.
Or have a set number of transformation css for 3, 4, 5 etc so you can apply the class the LI's and use nth-child to increment the degree.

You can then avoid all the extraneous markup

Help with transforms?
Here's a simple example
http://jsfiddle.net/GaryC123/ZN2dH/2/
This will only work in Firefox as I didn't add the declarations for other browsers - if you don't have FF let me know.

It's just a case of figuring out the margins/rotation for each number of menu options you might have - I assume this is limited
