Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating CSS-based rollovers , part of Dreamweaver CS6 Essential Training.
Although we aren't going to do anything in this movie that we haven't already…done in one form or another, stick with me, because in this movie we're going to…tie everything that we've learned about styling links together to explore making…CSS-based rollovers.…We'll focus on a background image based rollover, but the same techniques…that we're going to use here would also work with background colors or foreground colors.…The ability to create CSS-based rollovers is based off of the use of what we…call pseudo selectors.…There are many different pseudo selectors, but the link, visited, hover, and…active pseudo selectors allow us to respond to user interaction on our links.…
In the past we've needed to be very careful in how we added these…pseudo-selectors as browsers were very inconsistent in how they handled visited links.…Now the browsers have more or less standardized how visited links are handled we…can use the hover pseudo selector to control user interaction on links without…worrying about the negative effects of visited links.…
