CSS Examples Dashed Vertical Menu

Date: 05/14/2005 Dashed Vertical Menu

Author:

A simple yet elegant list based vertical menu. Move the mouse over a link, and the link area changes color. A thin dashed border follows each menu item.

The CSS:

<style type="text/css">

#vertmenu {
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 100%;
width: 160px;
padding: 0px;
margin: 0px;
}

#vertmenu h1 {
display: block;
background-color:#FF9900;
font-size: 90%;
padding: 3px 0 5px 3px;
border: 1px solid #000000;
color: #333333;
margin: 0px;
width:159px;
}

#vertmenu ul {
list-style: none;
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
border: none;
}
#vertmenu ul li {
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
}
#vertmenu ul li a {
font-size: 80%;
display: block;
border-bottom: 1px dashed #C39C4E;
padding: 5px 0px 2px 4px;
text-decoration: none;
color: #666666;
width:160px;
}

#vertmenu ul li a:hover, #vertmenu ul li a:focus {
color: #000000;
background-color: #eeeeee;
}

</style>

The HTML:

<div id="vertmenu">
<h1>Navigation</h1>
<ul>
<li><a href="#" tabindex="1">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="#" tabindex="2">About Us</a></li>
<li><a href="#" tabindex="3">Computing</a></li>
<li><a href="#" tabindex="4">Web Sites</a></li>
<li><a href="#" tabindex="5">Games</a></li>
<li><a href="#" tabindex="6">Links</a></li>
</ul>
</div>
