Default How do i get my vertical spry menu bar to be on right side of page?

I am wanting to use a vertical spry menu bar on the right side of my page... but the tabs always come out on the right side. I would like the submenus to come out of the left side of the menu.

Is that possible? I don't know really know anything about javascript if i need to edit that and I'm not sure what to edit in the CSS.

Can anyone help?

Code:

Okay, lets try something.
In the Spry CSS file you change in the 3rd and 4th rules the following. I'll make them bold.
Code:
/* Submenus should appear slightly overlapping to the right (95%) and up (-5%) with a higher z-index, but they are initially off the left side of the screen (-1000em) */ 
ul.MenuBarVertical ul {
    margin: -5% 95% 0 0;
    padding: 0;
    list-style-type: none;
    font-size: 100%;
    position: absolute;
    z-index: 1020;
    cursor: default;
    width: 8.2em;
    right: -1000em;
    top: 0;
}

/* Submenu that is showing with class designation MenuBarSubmenuVisible, we set left to 0 so it comes onto the screen */
ul.MenuBarVertical ul.MenuBarSubmenuVisible {
    right: 0; 
}

actually the "right: -1000em" was messing up the submenu's some by putting additional submenus way to the right of the window. I changed it to 1000em and it seems to be working better.

Yes, indeed... I forgot about that one. Great that it's all sorted out now.
