separator color and other issues

No matter what I seem to do, I can't get the separator color to do anything to the main menu I've created. Take a look at the following link to see what I mean:

http://www-dev.cer.jhu.edu

All the submenus have a black separator between the menu items, but the main horizontal one at the top has white separators. I've played with all the separator* directives in my meny style to no avail. Can anyone tell me why this isn't working?

Finally, as much as this menu claims to work in most browsers, I'm not seeing that. IE displays the menu fine except for the separator colors, Mozilla draws the main menu too large in the vertical direction, and Safari displays all the drop down menus detached below and to the right of the main horizontal menu. What's the deal?

Anyway, below is my menu_data.js file, thanks for helping.

This is my menu_data.js file:
------------------------------------
_menuCloseDelay=500 // The time delay for menus to remain visible on mouse out
_menuOpenDelay=150 // The time delay before menus open on mouse over
_followSpeed=5 // Follow scrolling speed
_followRate=40 // Follow scrolling Rate
_subOffsetTop=10 // Sub menu top of fset
_subOffsetLeft=-10 // Sub menu left offset
_scrollAmount=3 // Only needed for Netscape 4.x
_scrollDelay=20 // Only needed for Netcsape 4.x
