Hi Jason (not Ray) !!!
Sorry was finishing other parts of the site.
I've added width and height, and it messes up the positioning of the menu elements (as in terms of spacing), I rea;;y would prefer it to be auto as the menu elements are dynamic from a database.... but i will look at that later.
Its still not allowing me to click the link on the level 1 dropdown when it has a lvl2 attached to it.
the level 1 does have a href on it when i look in firebug
tried changing various diffirent things but to no avail :(
am pretty sure its to do with the margin left on the lvl 2 but if i remove that then the level 2 submenu appears on top of the level 1 menu!!!
am definatly not a css guru, i have tried playing with z-indexs padding instead of margin and i cant find anything that fixes this :(
any other ideas?
the testpage from the original link should be up there now
