mouseover on li change background colour

mouseover on li change background colour

(OP)
I have 4 li tabs. When mouse over I would like the background to change colour to the same colour as the image. e.g. on this site, move over a tab and the image is replaced by a black background. I would like the black background to actually be the colour of the tab but I only seem to be able to have one colour as the background?

RE: mouseover on li change background colour

Give your tabs a specific class so you can target their bg color.

CODE --> HTML

<ul>
			    <li style="background: url(img/navYellow.gif) no-repeat;">
<a href="http://oakhowelettings.com" class="yellowtab">Home</a></li>
		   
  			    <li style="background: url(img/navOrange.gif) no-repeat;">
<a href="http://oakhowelettings.com" class="orangetab">Home</a></li> 

CODE --> CSS

#header li a.yellowtab:hover { background-color: #f58221; color: #000; height: 20px; }  
#header li a.orangetab:hover { background-color: #f58221; color: #000; height: 20px; }
