Hello, I am new to CSS and I am trying to make a left side navigation menu with some items having an additional submenu that pops up to the right when the mouse hovers over the link. The submenu is popping up, but the problem is that it disappears as soon as move my mouse off the link.

here is the page and try hovering over "bicycles & frames" to see what i mean.

Not in IE, it doesn't.

That's the reason why I don't think pure CSS menus are a good choice unless they are kept extremely simple. There's no way to get a nice little delay as with JS menus and that causes usability problems.

Still, it can work pretty well if the menus are placed right, so you don't stray with the mouse pointer.

This menu uses a little JS to get it to work in IE, but there's no delay.

Thanks! I am using firefox and hadn't tested it in IE yet. I'm going to try out the menu you recommended. Thanks again!
