Hoping that this is a no-brainer to someone here!

Here is a sample of the code for my menu using suckerfish:

Code:
<ul class="menu sf-menu sf-horizontal sf-js-enabled">
  <li class="parent item3">
    <span class="separator"><span>Dealer Info</span></span>
      <ul style="display: none; visibility: hidden;">
        <li class="item13">
        <a href=""><span>About Us</span></a>
        </li>
      </ul>
  </li>
</ul>
Top-level and sub-level nav are both working great, but you will notice when you hover down to the sub-level menu items, the top-level text goes back to white, making it impossible to read...

Here is the css code for my menu:

Code:

/*** ESSENTIAL STYLES ***/
.sf-menu, .sf-menu * {
	margin:			0;
	padding:		0;
	list-style:		none;

}
.sf-menu ul {
	position:		absolute;
	top:			-999em;
	width:			10em; /* left offset of submenus need to match (see below) */
}
.sf-menu ul li {
	width:			100%;
}
.sf-menu li:hover {
	visibility:		inherit; /* fixes IE7 'sticky bug' */
}
.sf-menu li {

	top:			-999em;

/*** shadows for all but IE6 ***/
.sf-shadow ul {

Can anyone tell me what the rule is to keep that top level text black when I hover below?

Thanks
