Custom Menu Item Icons in Drupal

Unique icons for each menu item I recently worked on a project (based on Drupal 4.7 - but this technique works in Drupal 5 as well - more info at the end of this post) where I had to figure out the best way to assign unique icons to individual in menu within a Drupal block.

This is problematic in that there is no way to the target each menu item.

Drupal and SEO: My Basics

Let me start this post by saying that I'm not an expert on Search Engine Optimization (SEO). I do know the basics about Google's PageRank and keywords, but I've made it a point in the past few months to start getting to know some of the various Drupal modules that can assist in SEO.

SEO is at best an artform. If you're looking for strategies that will guarantee your site a top ranking on Google, you've come to the wrong place.
