WP Question: theming wp_page_menu

I’m curious about advice or tutorials on theming the wp_page_menu. I’m trying to figure out the best way to add visual elements to the front and end of a menu. What I mean by that is I want an image in place before the first <li> and at the very end of the menu. Right now I’m just throwing a whole bunch of divs around but I’m thinking there’s a simpler method. Any ideas? Thanks.

You may not need any extra markup for this at all. If the menu is an unordered list, you can set padding on the UL, LIs etc and set background images on them.

For more advice, post some code and and an indication of what look you are shooting for.
