Hi Marco

There is one other thing I could use help with:

Someone complained recently that the site wasn't compatible with IE6 (or
lower). I was able to tweak most of the CSS to work in IE6, but the menu
still only works properly in IE7 or higher.

It appears in IE6 (I had to change "position: fixed" to "position: relative"
in the IE stylesheet), but the spacing inside the menu is off. If you test
it in IE6, you'll see what I mean.

If you'd be up for taking this on, it would be much appreciated. My guess is
that there may need to be a Javascript solution if IE6 can't handle a pure
CSS popup menu.

What do you think?
