    I'd like to use my RadMenu to show the SiteMapDataSource contents, and further be able to style the individual buttons using CSS. This requires that I be able to set the ID of each <li> generated by the menu. I can include the ID in the Web.SiteMap xml and if I was using a basic repeater could then just bind the LI id attribute to that value. Is there a way to declaratively bind the ID property of each LI generated by the rad menu to a property of its datasource item?

    Here is how it works with a repeater:

       <ItemTemplate><li id='<%# ((SiteMapNode)Container.DataItem)["id"]  %>'>&nbsp;</li>
           </ItemTemplate>
            </asp:Repeater>

    If I have to achieve the same result by building the rad item template myself, then the menu doesn't really give me anything the repeater didn't. I was hoping to start using the menu more generally, but in this first instance I seem to have already found an exception where it can't replace my standard code.

    Thanks!
