duplicate background images in asp.net menuitem

I am trying to change the look of the asp.net menu by setting a background image in my stylesheet but in the menu I get duplicate backgrounds like a separate background for the text in that menu item. I have written the following in the stylesheet:

.menuitem
{
      background-image:url(./images/menu_bg.gif);
      width:180px;
      height:25px;
      color:White;
      background-repeat:no-repeat;
}

and the source for the menu looks like this:

<asp:Menu ID="Menu1" runat="server">
                            <LevelMenuItemStyles>
                                <asp:MenuItemStyle BackColor="White" CssClass="menuitem" Font-Underline="False" ItemSpacing="5px" />
                            </LevelMenuItemStyles>
                            <Items>
                                <asp:MenuItem Text="Overview" Value="Overview"></asp:MenuItem>
                                <asp:MenuItem Text="Contacts" Value="Contacts"></asp:MenuItem>
                            </Items>
                        </asp:Menu>

Am I missing something?

try

#Menu1
{
     background-image:url(./images/menu_bg.gif);
     width:180px;
     height:25px;
     color:White;
     background-repeat:no-repeat;
}


or better still.. once your page is rendered.. do a view source and paste the HTML here. we can then track down what level / element needs to be styled.

Here is how the colde locks in html:

<tr style="height:2px;">
            <td></td>
      </tr><tr style="height:2px;">
            <td></td>
      </tr><tr onmouseover="Menu_HoverStatic(this)" onmouseout="Menu_Unhover(this)" onkeyup="Menu_Key(this)" id="ctl00_Menu1n2">
            <td><table class="menuitem ctl00_Menu1_6" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="100%">
                  <tr>
                        <td style="white-space:nowrap;width:100%;"><a class="ctl00_Menu1_1 menuitem ctl00_Menu1_5" href="javascript:__doPostBack('ctl00$Menu1','Contacts')" style="border-style:none;font-size:1em;">Contacts</a></td>
                  </tr>
            </table></td>
      </tr>

ok there look to be multiple classes being applied to elements here:

<table class="menuitem ctl00_Menu1_6" ... is applying .menuitem AND .ctl00_Menu1_6, track this down in your css

also look at <td style="white-space:nowrap;width:100%;"><a class="ctl00_Menu1_1 menuitem ctl00_Menu1_5"  three different classes are being applied here, including .menuitem which might explain the background for the table and the text.
