Hello all, this is my first time on these forums. I have had the idea of a website for a while now, but have no previous experience with web design. I picked up dreamweaver a week ago and am trying my best to learn quickly. I can use all the help I can get.

I am currently putting in a SPRY drop down menu. My goal is that my drop down menu will look similar to this one which I found on the web:




Currently my menu looks like this:



The grey portion is a filler JPEG image which I will be replacing later. Basically, I just can't figure out what code I need to alter and what I need to put in. My main problem that I need to fix is the grey portion that shows up on the drop down. I can't figure out why that is there.

Below is my code. I would like to have a white, rounded drop down menu that changes to a dark orange background when hovered. Thank you for your help!
