Hi,

It is not recommended to use "display: none;" to hide elements as this makes them unavailable to some screen readers.

This issue is discussed in more depth here - http://css-tricks.com/places-its-tempting-to-use-display-none-but-dont/

Your drop down menu ( ul#css3menu0 ul ) is currently set to display:none in your main.css (line 28 )

Instead of hiding the menus you should move them off the left of the page where they are not visible to those who see the page but are still 'visible' to screen readers.
