    Post Drop-down/pop out menu bar html/css

    OK, I'm trying to make a simple menu bar that when I hover over a menu item, a sub-menu pops out the side.
    I've got very close to achieving it except when the sub-menu pops out it pushes the main menu items down beneath it.

    This is what I have got so far:

    (Orange is where the cursor is)

    I used this HTML code:
    HTML Code:
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html dir="ltr" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    
    <!-- #BeginTemplate "template.dwt" -->
    
    <head>
    <meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content-Type" />
    
    <link href="sitestyle.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"/>
    
    <!-- #BeginEditable "doctitle" -->
    <title>Site Title</title>
    <!-- #EndEditable -->
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
    <div id="container">
    
    <div id="logo">
    <h1>Site Title</h1>
    </div>
    
       <ul id="navi">
    
          <li class="mlink"><a href="#">Item</a></li>
          <li class="mlink"><a href="#">Multiple I</a>
          	<ul>
    
          	<li><a href="#">Item 1</a></li>
          	<li><a href="#">Item 2</a></li>
          	</ul></li>
          <li class="mlink"><a href="#">Item</a></li>
          <li class="mlink"><a href="#">Item</a></li>
    
      </ul>
    
    <!-- #BeginEditable "main" -->
    <div id="main">
      <h2>Page Title</h2>
      
      <p>This is the first bit of content</p>
    	<p>more content&nbsp;</p>
    	<p>even more content.....</p>
    
    
    </div>
    <!-- #EndEditable -->
    
    </div>
    
    
    </body>
    
    <!-- #EndTemplate -->
    
    </html>
    And this CSS:
    Code:
    /*Style sheet by hg*/
    
    div {
    padding: 3px;
    }
    
    div#container {
    width: 75%;
    margin: 0px auto;
    padding: 5px;
    }
    
    div#logo {
    height: 10%;
    background-color: #B1B1B1;
    border-width: 1px 1px 1px;
    border-style: solid solid solid;
    border-color: #545454;
    
    
    }
    
    ul#navi, ul#navi ul {
        width: 150px;
        float: left;
        margin-left: 0;
        margin-bottom: 0;
        margin-right: 4px;
        margin-top: 0;
        padding-left: 0;
        padding-bottom: 0;
        background-color: #C0C0C0;
        padding-top: 0px;
        list-style-type: none;
        left: 0px;
        right: 0px;
    }
    
    ul#navi li {
        width:149px;
        border-style: none solid solid solid;
        border-width: 1px;
        border-color: #545454;
        padding-top: 3px;
        padding-bottom: 3px;
        height: 23px;
    
    }
    
    ul#navi a{
    	white-space : nowrap;
    	z-index : 2;
    
    }
    
    li a{
        padding:3px 4px 3px 4px;
        text-decoration: none;
        font-family: "trebuchet ms", verdana, arial, sans-serif;
        font-size: 15px;
    
    }
    
    ul#navi ul {
    	float: left;
    	position: relative;
    	top: -24px;
    	left: 149px;
    	display: none;
    	border-top:1px #545454 solid;
    }
    
    ul#navi a:hover{
    	text-decoration:underline;
    }
    ul#navi li:hover{
        background-color:orange;
    }
    
    ul#navi li:hover > ul{
    	
    	display: block;
    }
    
    
    
    .mlink{
    text-align:center;
    }
        
    
    div#main {
        border-style: none solid solid solid;
        border-width: 1px;
        border-color: #545454;
    }
    
    
    div#main p, div#main h2, div h1
    {
        margin-left: 4px;
        margin-right: 4px;
    }
    h1 {
        font-family: Georgia, serif;
        font-size: xx-large;
        color: #666666;
    }
    h2 {
        text-decoration: none;
        font-family: Georgia, serif;
        font-size: x-large;
        color: #000066;
    }
    p {
        font-family: "trebuchet ms", verdana, arial, sans-serif;
        font-size: 14px;
    
    }

    Anyone know what I need to add/change to the code to make it work proper?
