Hi I am using a CSS/Javascript drop down menu code and am having a bit of an issue branching out more levels in IE.

This works perfectly fine in Firefox but in IE when you hover over "Company" it puts "FAQ" OVER it instead of away..

This actually might be a Javascript issue; if it is I apologize for posting this question here.

Thanks for any help with this..
