DD Color Tabs II

Author: Dynamic Drive

Based on the same design as DD Colors Tabs, this second version flips the tabs over to create an inverted look. Just like the original, you can modify the menu's default and hover colors just by altering the two color values inside the CSS code. This is made possible thanks to transparent images used as the menu tabs' interface.

The two colors used in this menu are: #8b0000 and #d50509. Just by changing these two colors, you instantly create a different theme for the menu tabs.

Very clean, very customizable, very lightweight, minimal images. A very nice, professional menu.

* I recommend this menu.

Hey .. how do I align this on center of the page ??
I tried but menu gets all messed up. I don't have problems with align on the right

I would like to ask you how to make whole menu in center, instead of in left. I tried to change some coding. But couldn't let me know. Thanks.

I tried a trick to make the menu in the center by giving visibility to hidden.
<li style="visibility:hidden;"><span>Tools</span></li>

so you can put couple of those to make the menu in the center. Don't put visibility=hidden on others.

I like this script a lot! I'm trying to figure out how to adapt to a table row rather than as a div list. If I can't get that to work easily, I'll use the default.

This Menu does not work and I am using Dreamweaver. Do I Absolutely need these pictures, if I do, Where do I put them so it can work?

I like this menu. However, the highlights don't work when I select a tab (color remains the same), and I'm having a little trouble designating the first page that displays. My Home page, which is the first tab selection, doesn't display as the first page.
Any suggestions?

Thanks so much for posting this! Works like a charm. I too wasn't able to figure out how to center the tabs, so I fudged it by specifying a larger margin-left to "push" the tabs over so that it appears to be centered since I have a fixed page width. But I'd appreciate it if anyone comes up with a better way to do an align: center.

Thanks again!
