CSS Examples CSS horizontal Tabs

Date: 10/08/2004 CSS horizontal Tabs

Author: CSS Drive/ Based on Eric's Meyer's Tab.

A horizontal tab interface that's extremely lightweight and scalable. Each tab is simply a list element and set to "display: inline" to cause it to align side by side instead of vertically.


<ul id="tablist">
<li><a class="current" href="http://www.cssdrive.com">CSS Drive</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.yahoo.com">Yahoo</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a></li>
<li><a href="http://www.news.com">News.com</a></li>

The CSS:

padding: 3px 0;
margin-left: 0;
margin-bottom: 0;
margin-top: 0.1em;
font: bold 12px Verdana;
border-bottom: 1px solid gray;

#tablist li{
list-style: none;
display: inline;
margin: 0;

#tablist li a{
text-decoration: none;
padding: 3px 0.5em;
margin-right: 3px;
border: 1px solid #778;
border-bottom: none;
background: white;

#tablist li a:link, #tablist li a:visited{
color: navy;

#tablist li a:hover{
