what does the asp/html code look like?  Can you post a snippet of this control?

have you tried just playing with the padding attributes?
        <asp:Menu ID="Menu1" runat="server" BackColor="#E0E0E0" BorderColor="Black" BorderStyle="Solid"
            DataSourceID="SiteMapDataSource1" DynamicHorizontalOffset="2" ForeColor="Black"
            Orientation="Horizontal" StaticEnableDefaultPopOutImage="False" Style="z-index: 100;
            left: 0px; position: absolute; top: 0px">
            <StaticMenuStyle BorderStyle="Solid" BorderWidth="1px" HorizontalPadding="40px" VerticalPadding="5px" />
            <DynamicMenuItemStyle BackColor="#E0E0E0" BorderColor="Black" HorizontalPadding="40px" VerticalPadding="5px" />
