Experts,

Im trying to incorporate a css menu into a joomla template.

Im trying to edit the way joomla ouputs the menu to get this format:
......
<ul id="qm0" class="qmmc">
      <li><a class="qmparent" href="javascript:void(0)">xxxxx</a>
            <ul>
            <li><span class="qmtitle" >yyyyy</span></li>
.......

I can change the id in the menu parameters easily enough, the problem comes when trying to change the class. Joomla always seems to output [class='menu'] then allows you to add a suffix, but i cant seem to see how to edit the first bit i.e. [class='qmmc']. Can this be changed?

Also is there a way to alter the actual template of the menu?

Regards
