To set the menu items as images, you will have to set up class items for the menu items you want the images to be for and then add the background-image into the css for that particular class.

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);
}

to get the background image to show up.

It sure would be great if this option was available through the wizard... any future plans on making this part of the program?

sperate Rulers between the links.
