hey guys,

i have a simple dropdown navigation, but i want to be able to create a billboard like flyout on hover of the submenu on certain items.

if you hover over the first item and go down the list you'll see a grey flyout to the right. what im looking to do is keep that nested at the top rather than move down as you move the mouse down the list, make sense? im also trying to keep the term highlighted when i move the mouse onto the billboard for interaction. i'm having some trouble doing so. i've stripped out what i've tried and left it as my original. could anybody take a look?

code is here:
