[ic] Images in the left tree using menu editor

I made it over another hurdle tonight.  Again, IC 5.2.0.  When using the legacy menu editor,
I was able to insert images instead of just text in the left hand side product tree.  However,
using the new menu system, no images would show up, despite having stuff in Title Icon,
Image Up, and Image Down.

Further investigation revealed that the file templates/components/category_vertical_tree was
being used to generate this code, and it had nothing in there for anything but small text.
I made a mod to allow the title icon image to work, and also made the category headings a
little bigger.

There must be something that I haven't set right, because it would be really cool if the
rollovers would work as it appears it was designed to work.  But at least here's one for the

Diff output for category_vertical_tree:

          <table cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" border="0">
              <td valign="top" class="categorybar" colspan="2" align="left">

Note: you can get to this by editing a html page, clicking on the part of the page design that
shows this tree, then clicking on the NAME: category vertical: vertical category list link.
