The menu Builder
applet will display a background tile of any size. The image is
tiled to seamlessly fill the area regardless of the original size.
If a tile is not required, this parameter can be left blank.
Display image #1
In its rested
state, the Menu Builder displays image #1. If it is a transparent GIF
file, it will be superimposed over the background color or tile.
If a tile is not nominated, the applet background color will be
seen behind a transparent GIF.

Image #2 is
shown on MouseOver and replaces image #1. If swap image is not needed,
leave the parameter blank.

and will look like what you see below. To align your menu, it should
be in a "table" as seen below. The table can be used to
control the spacing between buttons:
When aligning tables for tight fits, editors tend to add seemingly
unnecessary spaces that need to be removed. If you cannot get your
table to snugly fit around the image, check the HTML code and remove all
spaces at the end of the table lines. Then, close up the gap
between the last TD tag and the image reference.
