Menu is temperamental in IE6

Hi again folks.

I am not sure why but it seems that my menu is temperamntal in IE6.
When the mouse is over "about" the menu items display underneath for
it. However, when the mouse is over the other items the menu does
not
always display. It is working for IE7 and Firefox.
The menu that I am using was adapted from suckerfish.
The url to the page is: http://theamazing.onlinewebshop.net/cakes/
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Terry

Your page has mistakes. You have </styletwice in the head. You
do not have </headto close off.

Fix these things and a few others (validate the page). And while
you are at it, consider using the well known and stable:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

as a doctype, you gain no advantage from the XHTML one, and it
can give trouble in IE.

When you do the above, WinIE6, displays your menus fine on my
test, the essentials at:

Thanks dorayme.
I did not make the changes yet, but I went to your page and did the
test there. After refreshing the page a few times and mousing over
the menu items I noticed the problem there as well.

If it takes a few refreshes to exhibit the problem in IE, I
cannot explain it. Even more reason to reread the Dorward link.
These things are not rock solid, across browsers, platforms. At
the very least, design so that it does not matter much if it does
not work. That means the top list item should go to somewhere hat
then has further navigation to see go to the other sub list
items.
