    Problem with dropdown menu Positioning.

    Hi, I've got this menu all setup but it's a Top Navigation style dropdown so it drops down below my menu buttons.

    I would like to get it so it appears to the right of my images but I can't seem to position it correctly with the script. Any help would be appreciated. Code is included below. Thank you.


    <style type="text/css">

    #dropmenudiv{
    position:absolute;
    border:1px solid black;
    font:normal 12px Arial;
    line-height:18px;
    z-index:100;
    }

    </style>


    <script type="text/javascript">

    //Contents for menu 1
    var menu1=new Array()
    menu1[0]='<a href="#"><font color="#FFFFF">Item1</font></a><br>'
    menu1[1]='<a href="#"><font color="#FFFFF">Item2</font></a><br>'
    menu1[2]='<a href="#"><font color="#FFFFF">Item3</font></a><br>'

    var menuwidth='165px' //default menu width
    var menubgcolor='#cc3333' //menu bgcolor
    var disappeardelay=250 //menu disappear speed onMouseout (in miliseconds)
    var hidemenu_onclick="yes" //hide menu when user clicks within menu?


    var ie4=document.all
    var ns6=document.getElementById&&!document.all

    if (ie4||ns6)
    document.write('<div id="dropmenudiv" style="visibility:hidden;width:'+menuwidth+';background-color:'+menubgcolor+'" onMouseover="clearhidemenu()" onMouseout="dynamichide(event)"></div>')

    function getposOffset(what, offsettype){
    var totaloffset=(offsettype=="left")? what.offsetLeft : what.offsetTop;
    var parentEl=what.offsetParent;
    while (parentEl!=null){
    totaloffset=(offsettype=="left")? totaloffset+parentEl.offsetLeft : totaloffset+parentEl.offsetTop;
    parentEl=parentEl.offsetParent;
    }
    return totaloffset;
    }


    function showhide(obj, e, visible, hidden, menuwidth){
