The site url is I could really use some guidance on getting that top nav link for “Home” to point to the same cms home page as the main url and logo do.

The top menu was created by creating categories and assigning static blocks to them.
The static block assigned to the top nav Home link is coded as <ul><li><a class="level0" href="">Home</a></li></ul>.
I also tried using “/” and a full path url, no dice.
The logo points to the index page which corresponds to the cms page assigned for home page content.
System/Configuration/General/Web/Default Pages/CMS Home Page is set to use the correct page.
I tried editing this line is topnav.phtml a few different ways, no dice:<?php $_menu = $this->getHtml('level-top') ?>

After many google and forum searches, I’m at a loss as to what to try next. I just need that home link to point to the same cms content page as the logo and main url do. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
