Image Navigation Use images for icons, backgrounds of items. Using images you can create menus entirely based on graphics.
Text-based menu You can create a menu with text-based top items. Such menu will be loaded more quickly on your website (in comparison with image-based navigation). Menu structure is comprised of HTML nested UL and LI tags. Standards compliant menu structure is simple to customize and update.
To create your own theme, you should create the button image states first. It contains button image for each Normal/Hot state of the button, one-by-one, vertically. Button image states is a .bmp file like this one. Each button image state must have the same height. In the example below the button states image has size 50x150. It contains three button state images, 50x50 each.
