    Sub menu aligned left while main menu is centered


    I'm helping these fine folks fix a few little issues with their site but this one I can't seem to quite figure out. If you roll over the main menu you will see the sub menu slide down on the left. For the life of me I can't get it to line up under the main nav. I've tried many, many things. Can anyone provide a few hints, tips, suggestions? Thanks so much!!!

    Welcome to DevShed Forums, dotcomstudio.

    The problem seems to be that those sub-menus are positioned based on the default positioning context -- the <html> element. To create a new positioning context, give "position:relative" to "#menu".
