It looks like there is a bug in the WordPress 3.2.1. dynamic menu feature or there is some code for drop-down menus that needs to be included on new themes that's not clearly outline in the codex.

After adding a WP 3.2.1 menu to my new theme( http://testing2.homesafetn.org) that was converted from html/CSS, the static menus display fine, but I could not get the drop-down menu items to display correctly. They would display as static menu items under the top level menu, or if there is room they will display to the right of the main menu items. I did some testing by downloading and activating a number of free themes and they all had problems displaying drop-down menus in WordPress using the dynamic menu feature. Two of the themes I tested with were the RedBel 1.3.1 and the BirdSite 1.02. I also tested this in three diffrent broswers (IE, Firefox, Safari) I know someone has a solution out there to make this work with drop-down menus. Because the Twenty Eleven 1.2 and Twenty Ten 1.2 themes drop-down menus using the dynamic menu feature in WP works fine!

Hello ggivens, sorry you never got a response.

It seems like two years ago your theme has no CSS styles for displaying a dropdown menu. Core can't provide default styles here, since it depends on you theme. But I'm sure that nowadays every good theme has implemented some CSS for dropdown menus.
