How do I add an icon to a page menu link in page menu bar?

I would like to put an icon in my page menu links. I am using a page menu bar at the top of the header and figured out how to stylize the text and background color. What I want to do now is put a 15x15 px icon to the left of the titles in this bar.

Is there a post here that already covers this topic?

my site in development is at:

I want to put the icons in front of the links at the top of the page.

Thanks in advance,

I'm still trying to figure out how to do this.
I think the div is called, li .page_item page item-XXX (the page ID), as that's what Web Develper in FF tells me.

I think I want to add some css like:
a {
padding-left: 20px;
background-image: url(/to/file/img.jpg);
background-position: left center;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
But I can't figure out where to put this CSS.

thanks for any help,

HTML Code:
ul.rMenu li a {
background-image: url(path/to/image.gif) !important;
padding-left: 30px !important;
Adding !important here just to be sure

Thanks Flynn, that works!

What I want though is to have this a different icon for each menu option. I know the page numbers, so what do you think I need to do call each individual one?

Great Theme.

I love that I can do most of the work w/o editing the files themselves. Really makes the site sustainable by multiple folks.

Solved it!
I didn't realize until I read a post by jutta that I can put HTML in titles of post/pages.

so what I did was add a div tag around the page title and than added the CSS in the insert section.


Great board here at Bytes for All, you never know where you will learn stuff!

However, problem with my last method, is I don't know how to do an image swap in a hovered stage,

and even worse: the div tags show up in the title field! This will be an accessibility problem!

so I'm back to thinking this has to happen with the ul.rMenu li a CSS.
