|The Hierarchical Menus script item display is text-based. Occasionally, I need to include an image as part of an item. Could you please include this functionality in a future release?|
Although it was never isolated as a feature of the script, it has always been possible (since version 1.0) to include images in menu items.
The item display text in the arrays is inserted into the menu item as HTML, not plain text. Therefore, any HTML included as part of the item display text will be rendered correctly. Simple, non-conflicting, HTML, that is. Images are fine, but keep other HTML to a minimum.

arMenu1 = new Array( "", "","", "","", "","", "","", "<IMG SRC='WR.gif' WIDTH=39 HEIGHT=30 BORDER=0 ALIGN=ABSMIDDLE> WebReference","http://www.webreference.com/",0, "<IMG SRC='NS.gif' WIDTH=39 HEIGHT=30 BORDER=0 ALIGN=ABSMIDDLE> Netscape","http://www.netscape.com/",0, "<IMG SRC='IE.gif' WIDTH=39 HEIGHT=30 BORDER=0 ALIGN=ABSMIDDLE> Microsoft","http://www.microsoft.com/",0 )
The resulting menu would look like this (assuming you have set the color scheme and other parameters):
