I'm trying to use the suckerfish menu and have been successful up to a point but now I want to introduce a third level (off of products) and I can't get the third level li to appear adjacent to the second level li that produced it. Instead all third level li's appear in only one position (according to my px measurements). This means it's impossible to select the link because the cursor moves of the ul and the link disappears. Clear as mud?
If anyone could tell me what I'm missing (or have messed up!) I'd appreciate it.
Ta,
Craig.

suckerfish third-level position problem

I've already used the Meyer menu and will stick with it 9 times out of 10 but just for this 1 time I wanted to try something different. So, I will persevere.
The irritation is that I can't see anything in their code that is different from mine apart from our versions of "prettying it up" differ and I use px's cos I still don't understand em's.
