Web2 Style CSS Dynamic Menu with Arrows and Background-Images

Just another drop-down menu with web2 style background-images and arrows. We use two background images for < li > elements and two transparent background images(right positioned arrows with different directions) for < a > element. You can optimize background images as reducing width to 1 pixel. I dint use a smaller version, because we need to see images clearly. See demo of css menu.

Why tableless design, DIV vs. TABLE

Everybody says avoid tables when you are creating design elements like layouts, themes, pages... Why?


  • Main
    (X)HTML says; tables are for tabular data not for website-layout
  • Speed
    Tables have much design code than content, divs are faster for download. Save bandwidth!
  • Usability
    Tables let confusing while creating layout(You have to remember which TR or TD ends in which template file)
  • Debug

Table colspan rowspan with DIVs

I want to use DIVs and CSS for my layouts etc. I need some table like areas sometimes. I know that I can create a grid table like element with "display: table", than "display: table-row", than "display: table-cell".

But how can I create a table with colspan and rowspan with CSS and DIVs? Without DIV floating and fixed with / height...

Preload images with JavaScript or CSS

I have a small website with two background images for top menu. When I bring mouse first time over a menu element it takes 2-3 seconds that second background image loaded (style link:hover background: url(secondimg.png)). For this short time user see nothing, of course it is annoying. To escape this situation I want to preload all images inklusive background images for menu elements, links, divs etc. Is there a very easy and short javascript or css trick? Thanks for any help!

Enable vertical scrollbars in Firefox permanently with CSS2

Sometimes we build websites with both long and short pages. Some of them dont need scrollbars and browsers dont display scrollbars as default. But if you have centered container Firefox change tha x-place(margin to left) depends on scrollbars. It looks like design/position problem. To prevent this we need permanent enabled scrollbars but not horizontally. We can enable xy scrollbars with "body { overflow: scroll; }". There is no property for just y in css2. In css3 there are properties like overflow-y, overflow-x etc. Use following code to fix it:

 html { height: 101%; }
