Doing it with style

CSS MENUSProfessional drop-down #9 - shadow menu

Date : 2nd March 2008

For all modern browsers

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


The first in a series of dropdown menus that use png shadows to give a 3D effect to the top level hovers and sub menus.

This one is a very basic concept that uses fixed width top level links and fixed size sub levels. This has made it easier to cope with IE6 and its lack of support for png transparency.

In this example IE6 has its own special style for the background images which enables it to correctly display the alpha image transparency.

Tested in IE6, IE7, IE8, Firefox, Opera and Safari (PC)

Future menus in this series will overcome the fixed sizing problem.
