It have a simple menu it Joomla, only 1 level like this:


I have created a small animated rollover .swf file for each of these items, so when a user rolls over one of the menu items I want the animation to play.
In Joomla I know I can replace menu items with images, although I haven;t found a way to replace a menu item with a .swf file.

Does anyone know of a plugin or menu that would allow me to use .swf files as my menu items?
