As you can see in this Fiddle, the ul is nested in an li and positioned off-screen with a negative left value. The :hover state of the parent li sets the left value of the flexed ul to 0. Pretty standard stuff.
The submenus have the potential to contain many items so, to ensure they don’t drop off the end of the screen, I need to break to a new column after a set number of items.
