Yeah, thats the problem. Because IE6 doesnt fully support the hover function in CSS you need a javascript 'hack' to get a flyout to work. It actually a very small and clean script, but an IE hack nonetheless. More info here:

I think we could have submenus display under the menu item once a section is clicked, but until IE gets it together (Im not reading too many promising reviews of IE7) we should probably avoid any 'IE hacks'.

Without using hover? Dropdowns on hover are immensly annoying, since
they flyout just if you move the mouse over the menu, and because you
need to take care not to "touch" another part of the menu when
selecting something in the submenu, because then another submenu will
fly out.

If you can, in pure CSS and without JS, make a dropdown menu that
works on clicks, and/or with a hover delay, that works both on IE and
firefox, and on other browsers fall back to a non-dropdown menu in a
useable and accessible manner, then I'd be happy with drop-downs. :-)
