I know Jamie - I guess I am a bit paranoid. But, when you're ranking really well, sometimes you're afraid to change anything in case you break it!

Hope this makes sense.

We to have just implemented a css drop down and everything is fine.
This will get you banned.
Hope that calms any fears,
have a good weekend

The way I understand it, most CSS drop downs simple use visibility parameter to hide / un hide links which clearly exists in the html source. The unhiding is done when a visitor points the mouse over the top level item.
According to suggestions so far, this is OK, as the links are all right there in the HTML source on the page, it's just you can't see them all at once?
I didn't know whether google would think we were trying to show links to it that we were hiding from our visitors?
Thanks everyone for your advice so far...

But I remember to show Googlebot the same text content I show to my users, no client-side cloaking at all.

Try to use "display: none" rather than "visibility:hidden"... depending on what you want to achieve though :-)
Visibility - "This property controls whether the content of an element box is rendered (including the borders and backgrounds.) If an element box is invisible it still affects document layout as if it were visible (to prevent an element box from affecting layout, the 'display' property should be set to 'none'.)"
