Hi Les,

Try changing overflow:hidden to overflow:visible in your includes/CSSLayouts/CSSLayouts.css stylesheet (line 24)

.cssLO > .cssLI:first-child {
overflow: visible;
}

Cheers Les,

You may also want to play with the width of the Level-1 menu, and add a 'white-space:normal;' property to the rule in CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.css (line 105) in order to fit the longer text links. The 'white-space:normal' property will allow the text to wrap:

ul#cssmw ul.level-1 > li > a, ul#cssmw ul.level-1 > li > a:link {
background-color: #FFFF00;
background-image: none;
border-bottom: 1px solid #FFFFFF;
border-right: 1px solid #FFFFFF;
color: #173232;
display: block;
font-family: "Trebuchet MS",Helvetica,sans-serif;
font-size: 10px;
font-style: normal;
font-weight: bold;
margin: 0;
outline-style: none;
padding: 5px;
text-decoration: none;
text-transform: uppercase;
white-space: normal;
width: 120px;
}




Looking good.

CSSMenuWriter in particular but WebAssist in general

This software seems to generate more corruptions than valid code. I spend more time debugging the shaky generated code than getting any work done. Maybe that's why this forum seems to be busy?
I have the same problem with identical code on two different sites. Works on one, not the other. I've got up to z-index 5000 but it won't play.
In the long run it will be easier to go back to the old way of writing my own menus.
This software is counter intuitive and unstable. I for one give up.

If you post the url to the page where you are having trouble someone would probably be able to help. Often times it just takes a small tweak in the css.

  I have the same problem with identical code on two different sites. Works on one, not the other.  

This could easily indicate a conflict in (the order of) the CSS that governs the way the menu presents. The style rules 'Cascade' (Cascading Style Sheets!) so a rule in another stylesheet may be superceding the correct rule for your menu's proper functioning/appearance.

As Ray says, link to the page(s) and we should spot the problem.
