CSS Examples CSS Drive horizontal menu buttons

Date: 09/12/2004 CSS Drive horizontal menu buttons

Author: CSS Drive

This is the same horizontal menu used here on CSS Drive. It dressed up regular <a> elements to be 2-state rollover menu buttons. The combination of "display: block" and "float: left" makes this possible.


<div class="hbuttons">
<a href="http://www.cssdrive.com">Home </a> <a href="http://www.cssdrive.com/index.php/main/submit/">Submit </a> <a href="http://www.cssdrive.com/index.php/main/resources/">Resources </a> <a href="http://www.cssdrive.com/index.php/main/contact/">Contact </a>
<div style="clear: left;"></div>

The CSS:

.hbuttons a{
display: block;
text-decoration: none;
font: bold 13px Arial;
color: black;
width: 78px;
height: 23px;
float: left;
display: inline;
margin-right: 8px;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
padding-top: 4px;

.hbuttons a:hover{

i've also seen these where the image is one file and just the background image position is shifted, which makes for a very neat and clean exposition. (ie both button states are inline in one image)

Check http://www.shelter-rocks.nl to see my problem, I really like the script, and it work nice but my website is centered and the menu doesn't move with the auto margins from my webpage!
Does anybody have an answer for me?
