Method 2

html, body {
    font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
}

/* define a fixed width for the entire menu */
.navigation {
  width: 150px;
}

/* reset our lists to remove bullet points and padding */
.mainmenu, .submenu {
  list-style: none;
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
}

/* make ALL links (main and submenu) have padding and background color */
.mainmenu a {
  display: block;
  background-color: #CCC;
  text-decoration: none;
  padding: 10px;
  color: #000;
}

/* add hover behaviour */
.mainmenu a:hover {
    background-color: #C5C5C5;
}


/* when hovering over a .mainmenu item,
  display the submenu inside it.
  we're changing the submenu's max-height from 0 to 200px;
*/

.mainmenu li:hover .submenu {
  display: block;
  max-height: 200px;
}

/*
  we now overwrite the background-color for .submenu links only.
  CSS reads down the page, so code at the bottom will overwrite the code at the top.
*/

.submenu a {
  background-color: #999;
}

/* hover behaviour for links inside .submenu */
.submenu a:hover {
  background-color: #666;
}

/* this is the initial state of all submenus.
  we set it to max-height: 0, and hide the overflowed content.
*/
.submenu {
  overflow: hidden;
  max-height: 0;
  -webkit-transition: all 0.5s ease-out;
}

Method 5

You don’t have to always use ul elements to achieve that, you can use other elements too as seen below. Here there are 2 examples, one using div and one using select.

This examples demonstrates the basic functionality, but can be extended/enriched more. It is tested in linux only (iceweasel and chrome).

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset='UTF-8'>
<style>
.drop_container
{
  position:relative;
  float:left;
}
.always_visible
{
  background-color:#FAFAFA;
  color:#333333;
  font-weight:bold;
  cursor:pointer;
  border:2px silver solid;
  margin:0px;
  margin-right:5px;
  font-size:14px;
  font-family:"Times New Roman", Times, serif;
}
.always_visible:hover + .hidden_container
{
  display:block;
  position:absolute;
  color:green;
}
.hidden_container
{
  display:none;
  border:1px gray solid;
  left:0px;
  background-color:#FAFAFA;
  padding:5px;
  z-index:1;
}
.hidden_container:hover
{
  display:block;
  position:absolute;
}
.link
{
  color:blue;
  white-space:nowrap;
  margin:3px;
  display:block;
}
.link:hover
{
  color:white;
  background-color:blue;
}
.line_1
{
  width:800px;
  border:1px tomato solid;
  padding:5px;
}
</style>      
</head>
