Spry Horizontal Menu - Macromedia Exchange Dreamweaver Extensions

I have tried several times to use a background image in a Spry Horizontal Menu, with no luck. Dreamweaver CS3 shows that the image is listed as a property of the menu, but you can't see it. I recently upgraded to DW CS3 from GoLive CS, and Spry was one of several reasons for the switch. I can get the menu & submenus to work fine, but I want an image instead of the boring plain-color background....

    Default Spry horizontal Menu

    My bike club webmaster ([url]www.actc.org[/url]) gave me his code to update my sub domain
    ([url]www.academy.actc.org/[/url]) to match the main page.

    His spry collapsing vertical menu works but the horizontal menu across the top
    of page shows up as a list on my computer. He says its fine on his. Works on
    the server. Must be on my end????????????

    <link href="/SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarHorizontal.css" rel="stylesheet"
    type="text/css" />
    <link href="SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarVertical.css" rel="stylesheet"
    type="text/css" />
    <table width="950" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <tr align="center" valign="bottom">
    <td colspan="4" align="left" valign="middle">
    <div align="center"><a href="/index.php"><img src="header.jpg"
    alt="Page Header" width="950" height="150" border="0" /></a></div></td>
    </tr>
    <tr align="center" valign="bottom">
    <td colspan="4" align="left" valign="middle" bgcolor="#FF6600"><img
    src="/images/spacer.gif" alt="" width="1" height="1" border="0" /></td>
    </tr>
    <tr align="center" valign="bottom">
    <td width="180" align="left" valign="middle" bgcolor="#EEEEEE"><img
    src="images/spacer.gif" width="180" height="1" /></td>
    <td width="770" colspan="3" align="left" valign="middle"
    bgcolor="#EEEEEE">
    <ul id="MenuBar3" class="MenuBarHorizontal">
    [LI]<a href="/index.php" class="MenuBarItemSubmenu">Home</a>
    [BULLET]
    [LI]<a href="/index.php">Home Page</a></li>
    [LI]<a href="/clubinfo/contact.php">Contact Us</a></li>
    [/BULLET]
    </li>
    Any suggestions?

    What version of Dreamweaver are you using? If you're using Dreamweaver CS3 or above, then the Spry menus should show in design view similar to what you get in the browser (except with a blue outline and a tab to allow easier selection of the Spry menu widget). Dreamweaver 8 and lower don't know what to do with the Spry content visually in design view so they will show the lists that the menu is based on.

    FYI: This forum is focused on Dreamweaver extensions, not built in functionality. If you have follow up questions, you should post in either the Dreamweaver general forum:
    [url]http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/categories.cfm?forumid=12&catid=189&entercat=y[/url]
    or the Spry forums:
    [url]http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/webforums/forum/categories.cfm?forumid=72&catid=602[/url]

    And if you do, you should upload a screenshot of what you are seeing within your copy of Dreamweaver as that may help in determining what is going on.
