Two sites, the same content.
1st site with static menu http://freetutorials.name
2nd site with CSS dropdown menu http://freetutorials.0catch.com
Problem: want to replace the static ment tags (titles) with the CSS dropdown menu tags and the site to look like the static menu but when the tage (titles are mouseover the dropdown menu will drop down.
I have tried several ways but they all distort the bottom (or content) table
(ie there are 5 columns aprox. the same width but they distort both Horiz. and/ or vert.)
below is the external CSS code for the menu:
