Another menu that uses png alpha opacity to give a translucent effect to the image below the single level dropdown.

In this one, the dropdown sub menu is positioned in the center of the the background png image and can have long lines of text in the sub links.

The whole of the png image acts as an overrun area and the menu will not collapse until the mouse is moved off this area.

In this example IE6 has its own special style for the background images which enables it to correctly display the alpha image transparency.

Tested in IE6, IE7, Firefox, Opera, Safari(PC) and Chrome
