Hi all,


This is no doubt me, ill have missed something or other. Wondering if anyone can look over.


Its from the navbar tutorial. Works fine in Firefox but in IE the buttons jump about as you hover.

ul {

margin: 0px;

padding: 0px;

list-style-image: none;


ul li a {

display: block;

height: 40px;

width: 200px;

line-height: 40px;

text-decoration: none;

color: #FFFFFF;

text-indent: 75px;

background-image: url(pixy-rollover.gif);

background-repeat: no-repeat;

margin-bottom: 20px;

background-position: right;


ul li a:hover {

background-image: url(pixy-rollover.gif);

background-repeat: no-repeat;

background-position: left;




Could someone explain what I have done wrong or why this is happening. Hopefully I will learn something new.

Could it be the image that is the problem? It works fine in FIrefox.


How do I attach images to my posts and ill get it up here today.

The image itself probably isn't the problem, but it would be helpful to have so we can see exactly what you are working with.
