Even when I only call dmWorkPath and dmenu.js once, it does not work.
A: See, it is not correctly to use image-based items:
["","", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo.gif", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo2.gif", "", "_self", "0", "", "", "", "", ],
and specify beforeItemImage/afterItemImage parameters. They won't work in that case.
You can create such buttons in the following ways:
1) Use image-based menu (images with text).
Create normal and mouse-over state images (with text) for each item:
["","", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo.gif", "mainnav_data.files/corpinfo2.gif", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["","", "mainnav_data.files/new.gif", "mainnav_data.files/new2.gif", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
["","", "mainnav_data.files/xxxxx.gif", "mainnav_data.files/xxxxx2.gif", "", "_self", "", "", "", "", "", ],
var beforeItemImage = [,]; //left-side image for normal and mouse over state
var itemBackImage = [,]; //background or image for normal and mouse over state
var afterItemImage = [,]; //right-side image for normal and mouse over state
var beforeItemImageW = '';
var afterItemImageW = '';
var beforeItemImageH = '';
var afterItemImageH ='';
But you should create a small images in any Graph Editor, for example:
You cannot use these two methods together!

Q: We are unable to get sub-menus to appear on page load or rather simulate a "windows application style menu".
Again, we are trying to use the menu not only as a navigator but also as a visual aid for the user to determine what page they are viewing. For example, when a user clicks on a menu item and that page loads, the menu should display the top-level item pressed, the sub-menu group, and the item pressed.
Furthermore, it would also be useful if we could then "unlock" the pressed items and navigate the menu under normal circumstances.
If there are no existing "quick" functions to accomplish this, could you please point out the function in dmenu.js or another engine file that initiates the display of sub-menus, we could then force the menu to select a top-level item in the onload event thus showing a top-level item pressed along with it's related sub-menu.
Q: I cannot get the separator image to display in my dhtml right click menu. Is there a setting I am missing? I want to separate the main menu items with an image.
A: To add a separator you should
var separatorImage=""; //for subitems (top items in vertical dhtml right click menu)
var separatorVImage="separator.gif"; //for the top items (subitems items in vertical menu)
You can create separators using menuItems (you can do it in DeluxeTuner, use "Add separator" button), for example:
var menuItems = [
["-"], // this item is separator
