So for school we have to construct a website and we have been taught how to do all the basics, but I being the ambitious individual i am tried making drop-down menus using only CSS, and im failing to figure out something.

The First part of the image is the mouse over the catagory, it then stays as a drop-down at the first item in the menu like in the second part, but then when i try move to the 2nd item it disappears and appears as the 3rd part.
the basis of the page is in there

and this is the CSS im using

My knowledge of CSS spans about 2 online tutorials, and this free example I gutted and reused (which may be where the problem liesFrown)

Thanks in advance for any help that can be given.

edit: also the bar doesn't sit on top of the image (which should be ignored its from an old test) but that's easy to fix with me just playing around

Sounds like you need to uncomment the z-index property for the #nav css so that the menu is in front of the aminated gif image.

Also to get rid of the 40px padding on the nested (2nd level) ul, consider adding a class to target the ul (rather than too much hierarchy like #nav ul li {....} ).

eg: class="menu-2nd-level"

Then in the css:

.menu-2nd-level { padding: 0; }
.menu-2nd-level li { padding: 0; }
