    OK, this is kind of a specific question, but I've searched high and low and am at my wit's end.

    I have built a custom Drupal 6 theme for a web site using this tutorial:

    It's gotten me 99% of the way to a completed site, but the last thing I'd like to do, which diverges from what's in the tutorial, is replace the text links in my primary nav with custom icons - i.e., I have unique images for each link and want those to appear and be clickable rather than the text. I have Googled to the best of my ability and haven't been able to find a solution for this in Drupal 6. I should also note that I'm a bit of a neophyte when it comes to CSS and PHP, so I kind of need to be hand-held through this process.

    If there's any help out there, that'd be fantastic - I've been banging my head against a wall searching for a solution.

    Not really suggested to replace a text menu with images - it'll kill your SEO.

    However, if you must, you can accomplish this with some PHP.

    You'll have to change your menu names in the admin to something like "home.gif" or "about-us.gif", etc.

    Then you'll have to go into your template.php file and create a hook to custom-render the primary links menu with images instead of text.

    I can't spell it all out for you without doing a lot of work here, but you can research how to create custom hooks and how to access the Drupal menu module by doing some Google searches.

    All in all, not a simple project. Wish you luck with it!
