The drop down menu works on the home page. It does not drop down on subsequent pages. This happens in IE6 (and probably earlier versions), not FF. I believe this to be associated with the directory structure because I have moved sub-pages into the root where they work fine.
A second problem that I believe has the same cause is the position of any page located in a sub-folder shifts down the screen, leaving a larger gap between the top of the view port and the upper div. This happens in FF AND IE. Again, the home page is fine; sub-pages are not.
I've searched the css for attributes involving paths and believe I've tied all of them to the root but the problem persists.

The last two, yes, the first one, no.
I used a tutorial from Community MX to build the menu. The tutorial instructed you to include a specific .js file to address IE's failure to accept :hover on non-linked elements. I have discovered that I didn't include the full path to this .js in the site's template, so only files in the same folder as the .js were able to access that file. I've since modified the path in the template to start at the root and now the menu works in all pages. I haven't examined the .js to see what it really does . . . 'suppose I should.
