Why the button"Find" cannot search the words that I type in the blank?

The "find" button along with the search form are simply part of the interface demo, and do not function.

Why the color does not change in the website while I have changed the code in ".invertedshiftdown2 a{color: white;}" ?

How can a submenu level be achieved with this menu?? Also why does this menu when placed in a web page does not allign to the left. I am using a table based web format but cannot seem to align the menu to the left.
