Zen Cart Change a Menu Header

Posted on 2010-11-13
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Hi, On this site here: http:// www. dot thedessert lovers dot com

My client wants me to change "Categories" at the top to "Products". I'm using the Apple-Zen template. I'm attaching the code from includes/templates/apple_zen/common/tpl_drop_menu.php

I can't figure out hpw to do it, but I'm sure one of you php wizards will find it child's play. :)
