I'm left utterly befuddled by the section in your documentation called "Setting Styles".

It says:

Capture of any item is printed within two tags basically like this:

capture text

First of all, what do you mean to "capture" an item?

Secondly, what on earth are "inner" and "outer" tags? I understand that you have NESTED DIV tags in the example, but for what? What goes in these tags? What is this a reference to?

Please forgive me if I'm just being dim but I've read this section multiple times now and have no idea what it's telling me.

"capture" is probably "caption" - the text displayed in the menu item.

You are right: "inner" and "outer" tags are nested html tags having item caption inside. We used this technique to allow more flexibility. Not all the browsers allow to set all properties with the single tag. Use outer tag for background, border etc. and inner tag to set text settings like text color, font etc.
