   <tr>
        <th colspan="1"  height="25" class="thCornerL" nowrap="nowrap">{MAINMENU_TITLE}</th>
     </tr>
<!--END switch_mainmenu_title -->     
  <!-- BEGIN mainmenu_row -->
  <tr>
   <td class="row2"><span class="topictitle"><a href="{mainmenu_row.U_VIEW_MENU}" class="topictitle">{mainmenu_row.MENU_NAME}</a></span></td>
