<EPiServer:MenuList runat="server" ID="Menu">
    <HeaderTemplate>
        <ul id="MainMenu">
    </HeaderTemplate>
    <ItemTemplate>
        <li>
            <EPiServer:PageList runat="server" ID="PageList1" DataSource="<%#Container.CurrentPage.PageLink %> ">
                <ItemTemplate>
                    <li>
                        <EPiServer:Property ID="Property1" PropertyName="PageLink" runat="server" />
                    </li>

protected override void OnLoad(System.EventArgs e)
        {
            base.OnLoad(e);          
            Menu.PageLink = PageReference.StartPage;           
            Menu.PageLoader.GetChildrenCallback = new HierarchicalPageLoader.GetChildrenMethod(LoadChildren);
            Menu.DataBind();
        }

        /// Creates the collection for the main menu, adding the startpage
        /// </summary>
        private PageDataCollection LoadChildren(PageReference pageLink)
        {
            PageDataCollection pages = DataFactory.Instance.GetChildren(pageLink);

    I have used the jQuery plugin "Superfish" together with an EPiServer-generated unordered list to create a drop-down menu, and it looks quite nice and works well. Have a look how to apply it to your code here:
