I like all these examples. And I appreciate you all posting them.

Does anyone know how to make the currently selected tab appear as if it is on top by changing the gifs?

btw: I think if you guys are going to complain about an example you should post your "improved code" so we can all learn.

I've actually done that before with javascript, by swaping out images on either side of the tab with ones that make it apear on top, though this was back in html 4 days, I'm not sure if you could do it with pure xhtml/css but I'm sure someone would come up with something.

To hide an admin, you'd would have to not actually send it in the code to ppl who werent administrators. This can only really be done with server side scripting such as ASP (active server pages) or PHP.

to do this you would have to use server side scripting such as ASP or PHP so that the link would not even be sent as part of the html to someone who wasnt an administrator

I photoshoped the base images to fit my particular needs and it works like a charm.

Thanks for making this code available!

Hi Kiran Shaikh I use it with PHP and to hide some links to normal users I use a normal if
if(isset($_SESSION['access_lvl'] > 1)){
<li>bla bla bla</li>
And it works just great!
