I have recently managed to get the lavalamp menu working on my site, although would like to do the following:
1. Have more space to the left of each menu item with the grey background still centred over each item. I added a padding-left attribute to the .lavaLampNoImage li css section but the background was then not centred on the menu item.
2. When a menu item is selected (e.g. BLOG) then the grey background remains on that menu item if on that page.
