My first menu, and I just can't keep it simple now, can I?

A different way you can do the background images is to define a class for each of the links and apply the images in the menu.css file. This way you can assign a hover state for the class as well.

For example, if my menu looks like this, I have added the link1 class to the Item 1 menu:
<ul class="level-0" id="cssmw">
<li class="parent"><a class="link1" href="#">Item 1</a>
<ul class="level-1">
<li><a href="#">Sub Item 1</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Sub Item 2</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Sub Item 3</a></li>
</ul>
</li>
<li><a href="#">Item 2</a></li>
<li><a href="#">Item 3</a></li>
</ul>

In my css file I have added this:
ul#cssmw > li > a.link1 {
background-image:url(img.jpg);
}

ul#cssmw > li > a.link1:hover {
background-image:url(hoverimg.jpg);
}

Note, the img.jpg and hoverimg.jpg need relative paths to the image. The css for the sublevel menus would be slightly different as well.
