Here is why I am asking this:
We have a main "corporate" web site, which is going to use the Deluxe Menu. One of the links on the main site will launch a page, which is running on a separate web server (physically separate server, and not a load-balancing scenario). Since all of these pages should look identical to the users, they all have to use the exact same configuration and look&feel in Deluxe Menu. I was wondering if any "configuration" type settings are stored on the server. In other words, would we have to maintain the Deluxe Menu install on two separate servers?
A: There is no need to install anything on your server. You should onlycopy a folder with all engine files (dmenu.js, dmenu_add.js, ...) anddata file on your server. Then you should call these files on yourpages, for example:

Actually you can copy deluxe menu files on the one server only anduse absolute paths.
Q: I can't get the hand pointer to work with my dhtml menu scripts in firefox and IE. I know that firefox requires the itemCursor to be set to pointer, but it doesn't work for all links in my menus. I believe that this worked in past version of deluxe-menu, but stopped working somewhere along the way. To recreate this, create a horizontal menu, and set the pressedItem to be one of the menu items and set the itemCursor to be "pointer". Then, you'll see that the pressed item's pointer is the finger icon, but the other menu items are just the arrow. Is there something I'm doing wrong or a setting that will fix this?
A: No, the reason is not in the pressed item.
See when you set:
your cursor will be a hand for the items with url only. For the itemswithout url it will be default arrow.
Q: I want to be able to put a small thumbnail icon in the description area of animated drop down menu. Here is a current line from my .js file for a single link.

I want it to do this though:

The problem is the "'s around the img src.....it's throwing off your animated drop down menu.
How do I fix that?
A: It is not correct to write menuItems in such way.
You should write:

A: Try to set the following options in Internet Explorer:
1) Go to 'Tools -> Internet Options -> Security'
2) Select Local Intranet and then press 'Custom level...' button.
3) Run ActiveX Controls and plug-ins = Enable
Automated Prompting for ActiveX Controls = Disable
