Sub levels not showing in dynamic menu

Hi there

I have a table setp as follows (just showing the columns of intrest)

Sections_sec (just using dummy data for explanation)

id_sec parent_sec menuname_sec
1 0 page 1
2 0 page 2
3 0 page 3
4 1 subpage1_1
5 1 subpage1_2
6 2 subpage2_1
7 2 subpage2_2

basically i create pages in the parent sec is either 0 or an id of another entry in this table

I have added a filter to the top level recordset (parent_sec = 0) so the top level does not show any of the sublevels

the sublevel is filtered by parent_sec with the ID from the top level item.

when i view the menu on the site (its on a blank page so no other css is conflicting with it)
the sub menus dont appear when i hover.

I have checked in firebug and the other menu items are there (the extra <ul> <li> tags are in the code on the page) but hidden and their state isnt getting changed to visible when i mouse over the top level menus

the page can be viewed at: menutest.php

i have attached the files in a zip so you can have a look at it.

if i use a static menu copying the structure from the db it all works ok, so not sure what i am doing wrong with the dynamic menu.
this is the code generated by the menuwriter (using the data from my tables)

html:
<ul class="level-0" id="cssmw2">
<li class="parent">
<a href="about/">about</a>
<ul class="level-1">
<li><a href="team/">Team</a></li>
<li><a href="oppurtunities/">Oppurtunities</a></li>
<li><a href="contact/">Contact</a></li>
<li><a href="terms/">Terms</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li class="parent">
<a href="latest/">Latest</a>
<ul class="level-1"></ul>
</li>
<li class="parent">
<a href="links/">Links</a>
<ul class="level-1">
<li><a href="jam-tv/">Jam TV</a></li>
<li><a href="jam-artists/">Jam Artists</a></li>
<li><a href="jam-school/">Jam School</a></li>
<li><a href="jam-family/">Jam Family</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li class="parent">
<a href="support/">Support</a>
<ul class="level-1">
<li><a href="join/">Join</a></li>
<li><a href="donate/">Donate</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
</ul>

<script type="text/javascript">if(window.attachEvent) { window.attachEvent("onload", function() { cssmw2.intializeMenu('cssmw2',{select_current: 0, orientation: 1}); }); } else if(window.addEventListener) { window.addEventListener("load", function() { cssmw2.intializeMenu('cssmw2',{select_current: 0, orientation: 1}); }, true); }</script>
thanks for your time

Ive got it to start displaying correctly now.

I think it must have been something to do with the css file.

i copied the css file for the static menu which was working ok to the folder of my dynamic menu
renamed all the css classes from cssmw1 to cssmw2

uploaded and its all working tickety boo, would still be intrested to know what was up with the css generated, as i was using the same design template from the static menu....

I would need t see it not working in order to troubleshoot, the link you provided is working now, so there is nothing for me to troubleshoot to be able to tell why it wasn't working before.
