"buttons" widths and tranparency

I'm just now trying out this Top Menu and it's looking great. I'm stuck on just 2 things though.

1.) How do I get rid of the transparency set in the menu? I think I just want the menu solid (so it doesn't show through onto the page underneath the menu).

2.) I am using the bar horizontally. I had set the "menu width" to 107 which filled the exact space I needed it to. However, some of each of the "buttons" in the bar seems too "short". In other words, I have some titles for my "buttons" which are longer than 1 word. The little arrow.gif sits right on top of some of my button words. How do I make a larger width of just *certain* buttons (as compared to the entire menu)?

1. Set opacity to 100 in
effect = "Fade(duration=0.2);Alpha(style=0,opacity=88);Shadow(color='#777777', Direction=135, Strength=5)

2. Do not set a width at all. The menu will adjust itself to the space needed.

Thanks for your response.

However, I didn't set a length at all and the menu doesn't extend exactly as far as I need. From where it's positioned,I need it exactly 649 px long. When I set the width to 107 each, it comes out perfect, but again, each single "button" doesn't show all the text and the arrow.gif overlaps what text it does show. what I am trying to do is figure out how to set each single "button" to a specific size. POSSIBLE?

If not, I figure I can take out the text all together and use icons.gifs. But, I now (also) need to know how to make the entire menu bar taller (HEIGHT).

Appreciate your help and time!

Did you try to place the menu in a 649 px wide table cell? And then set the menu width to 100%.
