    Instead of <a href="#> use <a href="javascript:void(0)">

    Just as Lanny says, you need a reference in the menu so the link actually
    exists. # creates a temporary hyperlink until you provide information of
    your own.Without some value in the href= attribute then you have no link and
    the menu fails.

    this by putting a big hotspot on top of the graphic link but I'm guessing
    there's a better way to go about this as well.
