May 2009 Meeting Report:
Building Blocks of Nav Menus

At our May meeting, we returned to the topic of styling navigation menus, a topic we have been covering throughout this year.

This month we looked at the CSS properties that I think are keys to creating attractive menus. Those properties include
  • pseudo-selectors, using the LoVeHA order;

  • display:, both block and inline-block, the latter being increasingly supported by browsers;

  • list-style, particularly list-style-type:none;

  • background, both color and image;

  • position.

And to get really creative, image editing for creating background images.
