RE: Tabs

Most people believe tabs are realy difficult to produce when in fact they can be as easy as a button.

That particular page uses some Javascript, but its not neccessary at all.

As an example:

take 3 pages


<div id=navtabs><span class="seltab">Page 1</span><span class="tab">Page 2</span><span class="tab">Page3</span></div>


<div id=navtabs><span class="tab">Page 1</span><span class="seltab">Page 2</span><span class="tab">Page3</span></div>


<div id=navtabs><span class="tab">Page 1</span><span class="tab">Page 2</span><span class="seltab">Page3</span></div>

The CSS could be:





now this is a very simple outline of how to do it. If you wanted to add more complexity, to change the positions if the tabs or whatever, you would need to alter either the nav bar in each page, or use some kind of server-side language to dynamically generate the tabs. But the basic structure is that of several buttons styled liked tabs and then just chnaged the style if it is selected or not.

Ignorance is not necessarily Bliss, case in point:
Unknown has caused an Unknown Error on Unknown and must be shutdown to prevent damage to Unknown.
