I am working on a menu, and have been able to get what I want, but am stuck on a few things.
Here is the menu, http://linford.us/common/header.php

3 Questions:
1 - How can I control the width of the dropdown (hover over Web Solutions / Dropdown Test)?
Line 50 lets me fix the width (right now at 134px to match the menu item it is dropping from), but is there any way to set it so that the dropdown will match up with the menu item it is dropping from, even if there are dropdown from items that have different widths?

2 - the border bottom is overrunning the length of the box. I can turn the border off by removing line 208, but how do I make the bottom border match the box size?

3 - The CSS, line 125, is used to adds arrows to indicate a dropline or dropdown menu, and it applies to all levels of the menu. I would like to be able to use different arrows for different levels (white arrows with the top line, grey arrows with the second line because the background is white, etc).
How can I add different arrows to each menu level?

Thanks for the help.
