Video: Styling submenus

We're now ready to start styling our submenus, but as you can see they don't exactly look the way that we want them to, right out of the box. The reason for that is that they are taking on the styling that's actually meant for our top level menus, it's just inheriting down. So not only do we have to create new stills for our submenus, we also have to make sure that they overwrite our previous menu styles as well.

So I always find it easier to style one just as a sample and then apply it to everybody.
