                <div id="subnav">
$args = array(
	'title_li' => '',
	'child_of' => 37,
	'link_before' => '<span class="link">',
	'link_after'=>'</span> <span class="arrow">&gt;</span>'
                <!-- End Subnav -->
            <!-- End Left -->
		#subnav ul .arrow {
		#subnav ul .current_page_item {
			color:#420000;		/* chocolate brown */
