I have a <ul> menu and I would like each <li> to be clickable no matter where you click in it.  Is there a good way to do this?

Yes, use it like this:
<ul>
    <li><a href="google.com">Link 1</a></li>
    <li><a href="google.com">Link 2</a></li>
</ul>

Not working for this:

<ul style="list-style-image:url('/mobile/graphics/stopwatch.jpg');text-align:left;margin-left:45px;">
	
			<li style="height:25px;background-color:#ececd8;margin:5px;padding:0 0 5px 5px;">
				<a href="/mobile/welcome.asp" style="color:#293e6a;font-size:1.5em;">Welcome Page</a>

			</li>
			<li style="height:25px;background-color:#ececd8;margin:5px;padding:0 0 5px 5px;">
				<a href="/training/trng_home.asp" style="color:#293e6a;font-size:1.5em;">Training</a>
			</li>
		
</ul>

I seriously think that it cannot be done if you user list-style-image, if you make your own effect like list-style-image that will work.

I moved the image to inside the <a> and made the list-style: none.  Still no luck.

You can't i'm telling you, it's because you can't modify that css property behaviour.

The only way to do this is to somehow put a div in front and make it behave like a bullet.
