Sexy Panels Vertical Menu

Author: Dynamic Drive

Sexy Panels is a vertical list menu with a curvy right edge. Its sexiness goes beyond aesthetics, however, as this menu not only maintains its look through any changes to its width or height, but is also very easy to colorize- through CSS alone. This is thanks to the menu's use a single transparent gif (with a white background) for its interface, so changing the menu's color can be accomplished just by changing a few CSS color values instead of firing up that graphics program. Sexy!

Personally, I'd use a PNG instead of a GIF. Looks cleaner and you get more transparency, so you don't have that ugly jagged edges. The code runs into issues should you have a background that is not one solid color. Perhaps instead of making it a white background on your images, you could use the background image of whatever the menu is going over? May be difficult if it is a picture though...

However, what is nice is that you don't even need rounded corners. You could create any transparent image (PNG or GIF) to be applied to your menu links.

Very Sexy!

Mark, In the code change the symbol to this - » - that should work. (Here's hoping you revisit this page!)
