Change background color for submenu cells/options

Change background color for submenu cells/options

I am working on a web site and need to change the background color of the drop-down menus. The theme being used is non-standard. However, I believe I have found the key area of code in one of the CSS files that belong to the site. It reads like this:

.arrow a:hover:before{content:url(../images/navhoverarrow.png); }
.arrow a:hover{padding-left:0px;}
.arrow a{padding-left:15px;}
.arrowactive a:before{content:url(../images/navhoverarrow.png); }
.arrowactive a{padding-left:0px;}

The navhoverarrow appears whenever a submenu option is selected; so I feel this is the correct area of code in which to make a change or addition. Thus far the changes I have tried have not had the desired result. Will somebody give me examples of possible CSS entries to make that may solve the problem?

Thank you in advance for your help.

RE: Change background color for submenu cells/options

this is really a css issue, not a wordpress issue. you would be better asking in the html and css forum.
