Background Image on JS Dropdown (or flyout) menu

I'm trying to configure the following code to enable a background image for each MenuItem. The image is just a simple one-pixel wide by 20 pixels high gradient image that I want to tesselates across the width of the menu.

I know the code is DreamWeaver which is less than optimal, but I am on a bit of a deadline with this and would appreciate some assistance in making it work ASAP!
