    dropdown menu pushing text down

    I got this dropdown menu script. When I hover over the menu to drop it, what ever the text drops is pushing the rest of the page text either down or tothe side. Is there a way to drop the menu on top of the page text?

    Here is the code:
    Code:
    <body>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!-- Start of Javascript do not touch this
      function mOver(id) {
    	  if (document.getElementById) {
    		  document.getElementById(id).style.display="block";
    		} else if (document.all) {
    		  document.all[id].style.display="block";
    		} else if (document.layers) {
    		  document.layers[id].display="block";
    		} }
    
    function mOut(id) {
    	  if (document.getElementById) {
    		  document.getElementById(id).style.display="none";
    		} else if (document.all) {
    		  document.all[id].style.display="none";
    		} else if (document.layers) {
    		  document.layers[id].display="none";
    		} }
    		
    		function dropMenu(id) {
    			var SM = document.getElementById(id);
    			for (var i = 1; i<=10; i++) {
    			if (document.getElementById('smenu'+i)) {document.getElementById('smenu'+i).style.display='none';}
    			}
    		if (SM) {SM.style.display='block';}
    }
    
    // End of Javascript -->
    </script>
    
    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    ul, li {
    list-style-type: none;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;

    }

    The basic problem was that the menu was still part of the document flow. Here is some code which works in Firefox 2:

    Code:
    <html>
    	<body>
    		<script type="text/javascript">
    		<!-- Start of Javascript do not touch this
    			function mOver(id) {
    				getElementById(id).style.display = 'block';
    			}
    
    			function mOut(id) {
    				getElementById(id).style.display = 'none';
    			}
    		
    			function getElementById(id) {
    				var element;
    				if (document.getElementById) element = document.getElementById(id);
    				else if (document.all) element = document.all[id];
    				else if (document.layers) element = document.layers[id];
    				return element;
    			}
    		// End of Javascript -->
    		</script>
    
    <style type="text/css">
    ul, li {
    list-style-type: none;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    float: left;
    }
    
    div.menu {
    margin-top: 150px;
    }
    
    div.menu > ul
    {
    	position: relative;
    }
    
    div.menu > ul > li {
    	margin: 0 1px;
    }
    
    div.menu a {
    width: 175px;
    height: 20px;
    display: block;
    text-align: center;
    border: 1px solid #88040A;
    text-decoration: none;
    font-family: Arial, sans-serif;

    color: #fff;
    background: #88040A;
    }
    
    div.menu a:hover {
    border: 1px solid #88040A;
    }
    
    div.menu a:active {
    background: #88040A;
