Yeah, thats the problem. Because IE6 doesnt fully support the hover  
function in CSS you need a javascript 'hack' to get a flyout to work.  
It actually a very small and clean script, but an IE hack  
nonetheless. More info here:


I think we could have submenus display under the menu item once a  
section is clicked, but until IE gets it together (Im not reading too  
many promising reviews of IE7) we should probably avoid any 'IE hacks'.
