CSS MENUSOverlapping tabs - Type Three

Date : 17th February 2007

For all modern browsers

This demo is too wide for your mobile screen.
Please view on a tablet or PC.


Back to a more normal overlapping tabs menu. This one uses three images per tab (left/middle/right) and three separate tab types (normal/hovered/selected). The images are transparent pngs and as IE less than IE7 doesn't display pngs with transparency I have used Microsoft's AlphaImageLoader to make these display correctly. The IE5.x and IE6 proprietary style is placed in a conditional comment to stop it being seen by the validator.

As with the previous menu this one also has the ability to click any of the tabs and reload the page with that tab shown selected.

This has been tested in IE6, IE7, Firefox and Opera, it should also work in Safari.

The following images are used in this menu.

Normal left > tab image Normal middle > tab image Normal right > tab image

Hovered left > tab image Hovered middle > tab image Hovered right > tab image

Selected left > tab image Selected middle > tab image Selected right > tab image

Background > background image
