Hi!
LI hover doesn't support in IE6, for better and compatible results you can use the code like following

#nav, #nav ul { /* all lists */
		padding: 0;
		margin: 0;
		list-style: none;
		float : left;
		width : 11em;
	}
	
	#nav li { /* all list items */
		position : relative;
		float : left;
		line-height : 1.25em;
		margin-bottom : -1px;
		width: 11em;
	}
	
	#nav li ul { /* second-level lists */
		position : absolute;
		left: -999em;
		margin-left : 11.05em;
		margin-top : -1.35em;
	}
	
	#nav li ul ul { /* third-and-above-level lists */
		left: -999em;
	}
	
	#nav li a {
		width: 11em;
		w\idth : 10em;
		display : block;
		color : black;
		font-weight : bold;
		text-decoration : none;
		background-color : white;
		border : 1px solid black;
		padding : 0 0.5em;
	}
	
	#nav li a:hover {
		color : white;
		background-color : black;
	}
	
	#nav li:hover ul ul, #nav li:hover ul ul ul, #nav li.sfhover ul ul, #nav li.sfhover ul ul ul {
		left: -999em;
	}
	
	#nav li:hover ul, #nav li li:hover ul, #nav li li li:hover ul, #nav li.sfhover ul, #nav li li.sfhover ul, #nav li li li.sfhover ul { /* lists nested under hovered list items */
		left: auto;
	}
	
	#content {
		margin-left : 12em;
	}

And for LI hover support use the following samll JS Script :

<script type="text/javascript"><!--//--><![CDATA[//><!--
 
sfHover = function() {
	var sfEls = document.getElementById("nav").getElementsByTagName("LI");
	for (var i=0; i<sfEls.length; i++) {
		sfEls[i].onmouseover=function() {
			this.className+=" sfhover";
		}
		sfEls[i].onmouseout=function() {
			this.className=this.className.replace(new RegExp(" sfhover\\b"), "");
		}
	}
}
if (window.attachEvent) window.attachEvent("onload", sfHover);
 
//--><!]]></script>

Hope you can get the solution.

Thanks.
