Hi,

I have a horizontal menu that has drop down menus. I'm using an 'include' to insert it into my pages.

When you rollover the menu when in the page, scroll bars appear around the menu wrapper and you can't see the drop down menus. If I give the wrapper a height, you do get to see the drop downs without the scrollbars but there's a huge gap between the menu and the content.

Here's a link to a test page:

http://www.barbel.co.uk/testindex.php

and the code from the top of that page:
