Matt Black Tabs

Author: Dynamic Drive

There's often beauty in simplicity. Matt Black Tabs is a clean CSS list menu that uses no images, and very small in footprint. Each tab is floated left to achieve its look and all contained in a wrapper that negate the need to manually clear "float" for the contents that immediately follow.

Note: Make sure your page contains a valid doctype for this menu to render properly.

Hey cool script.
But when i insert it into my page save and refresh i
get the bar message at top of screen saying....
to help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this web page from running script and ActiveX controls that could access your computer. Click here for options

this would be very annoying to people viewing my page. Is there any way to correct this please?

Hi, How can I make this menu to fit my webpage, I have 9 links and I want to make them fit to 800 px width. Thanks Anna

Awesome! Is this compatible with Chrome? I know it's a small percentage of visitors, but I think it will grow and is worth looking into. Thanks.

Hey guys/all - thank you for all the resources and how_to - I like the simplicity of this script and have customized it a bit - However I have been unable to have the font color change on visited links.

I have set my background color and hoover color as well as the font color but I would like to have the font color change from the normal black to something else once visited.

thanks again - I do not have the site uploaded yet so I am unable to post url.

Its good but if you do not want the right border only for the last button then?

It is not displaying over here as this page have white background, it is visible if used on a dark background page which is not looking good
