Sliding Doors Tabs Menu
This is a two state rollover image tabs menu based on the popular sliding doors technique. It uses two images, a right and left tab that shifts up and down as the mouse moves over a tab, to create a highlight effect.
CSS Drop Shadows
This examples shows how to add a drop shadow to any container element using only CSS (no images). It does this by wrapping the desired content in a DIV with its background color set to the desired shadow color.
Chrome Menu Bar
This is a lightweight "chrome" looking CSS menu bar. The menu uses two variants of the same background image to create the hover effect, and each menu items can easily be set to either align "left", "center", or "right" on the page, just by changing the "text-align" attribute.
CSS Tabs menu
This is a basic CSS tabs menu, created from an ordinary HTML list. The menu supports two common requests- the ability to align the menu "left", "center", or "right" on the page, plus highlight a particular tab so it appears selected.
Curly Corner Container
There are countless techniques on the web for adding curly/ round corners to DIV containers. The below shows one way to add a curly lower right corner to any DIV on your page. It does so by using relative positioning to slightly offset a DIV to the right and bottom, so its background image, which is a curly image, falls inline with the border of the outer DIV.
Two level CSS Tabs menu
Building on a regular CSS Tabs Menu, this CSS menu supports second level content that can be associated with specific tabs. By giving both a tab and the desired sub content a class of "selected", the sub content becomes visible on the page.
CSS Image Gallery
This is a purely CSS based image gallery that displays larger versions of thumbnail images dynamically when the mouse hovers over them. A rich HTML caption can be added to the enlarged image, and every aspect of the Image Gallery exists as plain HTML on the page.
