margin12margin is the amount of white space surrounding your menu items, the color of this parameter is taken from the offbgcolor
name1The Name property is a mandatory entry and is used for calling menus with the showmenu command from within a menu item. It is also used for refering to menus at run time. The only other mandatory property is style. All other menu based properties are optional.
openstyle11openstyle is used to determine how the menu will appear. an openstyle of "rtl" will force the menu to display in a right to left fassion, useful for use on web sites in Hebrew for example.

Openstyle can also be use to force menus to open upwards. the property for this is openstyle="up"
orientation9Menus can be either horizontal or vertical and the orientation property is used to declare the type of menu you need. The default value for orientation is vertical and orientation is not a mandatory entry. You only need to declare this value if you need a menu in horizontal orientation.

overflow13overflow is used to enable Scollable menus. Setting this property to "scroll" will force proprietary operating system scroll bars to appear on the right hand side of your menu
position14position is used to declare a relative position. By default this property is set to absolute so is only needed for setting the menu relative to other HTML objects or for embedding inside a table cell.
screenposition5screenposition is useful for websites that are centered in orientation. By declaring "center" for screenposition, this will ensure that the menu will remain centered at all times. Other options for screen position are top, left, right, middle or bottom, plus a combination of 2 valid properties separated by a semi colon. Offsets can be declared for both top and left. The syntax for offsets is "offset=-100"; this will move the menu 100 pixels back from either top or left depending on the screenposition you have used.
