Yes, you are correct.  For the sake of the post, I should've just 
removed the submenus entirely.  I plan to add javascript to use 
window.attachEvent (IE) to change add a classname "hover" onmouseover. 
IIRC this is what suckerfish does.

But, this is beside the point.  My main problem is getting the 
background images on the A elements to line up properly so it overlays 
the LI's background correctly.

Any other suggestions?
