I can see the submenues fine using IE 9 and ie 8 compatibility mode.

the margin settings on the top are causing the submenu to disappear before you can click them though.

Im using Ie 8.0 in compatibility mode as well..

About seeing the sub menu and it disappearing the funny thing is i dont have any margin on top or bottom of these items nor padding.

Also What can i do to to be able to view this on IE i have no luck with any changes i've made.

dont try editing the code by hand to add height and width to the elements, instead edit the menu using CSS Menu Writer to add the height and width attributes. IE is still reading the auto attribute for width and is not even seeing a height. IE cannot work properly with auto heights and widths.
