Re: awesome - exists some separator in awful.menu?

Each item in the menu gets a border in the same size and color as the border defined in the theme your using so as long as your
not using the same color on the border as you do on the menu background there should be a "box" around each menu item.

You can also customize the menu by using any of the   following settings in your theme file:
theme.menu_fg_focus
theme.menu_bg_focus
theme.menu_fg_normal
theme.menu_bg_normal
theme.menu_submenu_icon
theme.menu_height
theme.menu_width
theme.menu_border_color
theme.menu_border_width

The names are pretty self-explaining, theme.menu_submenu_icon is used to point out the icon that
will be shown on the items that points to a sub-menu.

Don't know if this is what you where looking for but this gives you some possibilities to
"separate" the menu items from each other.

This guy makes a nice little red dot that I use to separate out things like the date, my battery life, and volume.  Also, it's pretty simple and should be easy to make suit your needs.  Place the code somewhere inside the "Wibox" section, and then you can use it in "Create the wibox".  Good luck!

local separator = widget({ type = "textbox", name = "separator" })
separator.text = " <span foreground='red'>.</span> "

Oops. . . . I'm not sure about using it in the menu. . . . I don't ever actually open that thing.  It wouldn't hurt to try.  Sadly my Awesome setup crashed early last night due to something with cairo, or I would try it for you.
