This piece of css will show you that it is perfectly possibly to create a good looking navigation bar without any images or javascript and just a couple of lines of css.

All you need to do is create a html file that contains a unordered list in it with your navigation links in it as <li>. You will then need to simply attach the css file to your html.

I hope this will help you to realise that it isn't all about huge flash navigation and rollover images.

You can find my example here.

body	{
	font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 12px;
	color: #999999;
	margin: 0px;

ul	{
	float: left;
/*this part will stop it moving when the page scrolls so you may not want to include it*/

	position: fixed;
	margin-left: 20px;

li	{
	width: 150px;
	height: 15px;
	margin-top: 3px;
	border-style: solid;
	border-width: 1px;

Very nice. The only thing is that the a:hover colour doesn't work in combination with the colour of the list.


nice .. menu.. a:hover color should be work; you need to change 'a' element to block type. Here ..

a { display: block }

so, it give anchor link to full width of 'li' and the color will work when hover.
