  12. Avoids the drop down and forms overlap bug
    Sometimes Drop Down Menus do not interact well with form elements like text boxes and select lists or radio buttons. This is especially true on registration pages or order pages where the user has to enter information. If the drop down menu it too long and covers a text box or select list, it may be unreadable. Thus forcing the user to navigate to another page just to see what that last menu item it. Nevertheless, Menu Hot Sauce menus do NOT have this problem.
