<li class="parent link"><span class="link"><a class="link" href="../LearningSolutions/Expertise.asp">Areas of Expertise</a></span>
<ul class="level-2">

<li class="link"><span class="link"><a class="link" href="../LearningSolutions/Expertise/OrganisationalEffectiveness.asp">Organisational Effectiveness</a></span></li>
<li class="link"><span class="link"><a class="link" href="../LearningSolutions/Expertise/SalesEffectiveness.asp">Sales Effectiveness</a></span></li>

The whole site uses the same SSI file:

Why does the menu fail to function only when displaying pages which are 2 folder levels up as linked from the menu?
