I'm using a CSS/DHTML dropdown that doesn't use an imageswap...it's strictly text & hex based.
I'm quickly coming to the realization that there's no memory to this nav.
I mean, from page to page the navigation always looks exactly the same, it doesn't tell you which page your on.
So unless your using breadcrumbs or something, the user can easily get lost on the site as they look back to the nav and find it all black.
Now I know that I can name each button separately, and create a separate class for each one of them...
then manually change the color per page/section of the website. Or alternately, keep a different stylesheet for each section of the site.
But this seems like a whole lotta roundabout - just to change a button color.
Can someone help me understand this part of CSS navigation?
You have to assume that excessive amounts of code, whether they be CSS or HTML, will slow down a site.
So there must be a technique to this, I just can't find a lead on it anywhere.
