I did this site over 9 years ago.  Client wants me to add drop down functionality to the Faith Formation button.  Only problem is that it has been so long ago, I don't remember how I did it!  I tried to encourage client to have me redo site using css.  They are not interested.  I tried to plunk in css navigation into this table but it wouldn't display properly most likely because css should not be used with tables.  Hoping someone out there can help.

It's all done with the javascript menu code in "function mmLoadMenus()".  You need to add a whole new section like the one for 'Parish' which is shown below.
<img src="img/BuSchool.gif" alt="SJB School" name="school" width="146" height="28" border="0" id="school"></a><a href="#" onMouseOver="MM_swapImage('church','','img/BuParish1.gif',1);MM_showMenu(window.mm_menu_0105152616_0,2,28,null,'church')" onMouseOut="MM_swapImgRestore();MM_startTimeout()">

Open in new window

MM_showMenu(window.mm_menu_0105152616_0,2,28,

I don't know since I have never had a copy of Dreamweaver.  But most things that start with 'mm' are Dreamweaver codes.  I would just do it by hand.  'mm_menu_0105152616_0' corresponds to the section in the javascript in the <head>.  You would have to create another one of those sections that contain the links in the dropdown also.

So, do you think I should just make up a number then?  I can't use the same one.  It doesn't feel right.

Yes, that's what I would do.  You have to use it in two places.  Up in the javascript along with the links formatted like the sections above and then in the image link like the item before it.

Well, this isn't going to work.  I need to modify the following code and I have no idea what to put in it.

   mm_menu_0103172419_0.menuBorderBgColor='#FFFFFF';  window.mm_menu_0105152616_0 = new Menu("root",135,20,"Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif",12,"#FFFFFF","#FFFFFF","#336699","#000000","center","middle",2,0,1000,-5,7,true,true,true,0,false,false);

Can I plunk in css navigation drop down menu in a site that uses tables?

Not one that cooperates with the menu you already have.  You would have to start from scratch.
