Menu Tutorial COMMENTS

Welcome to my Comments Pages

Please note. I get a few hundred emails a week from visitors asking for help, or posing questions on how to modify my demos to suit their application and I read them all. Unfortunately I only have a limited amount of time to spend answering these questions.

So if I do not reply, please do not be offended, and if I do reply then you are one of the lucky ones.

If you are asking for permission to use any of my demonstration then please email me with your request stu{at}

People use lists for their menus because the W3c recommend it - a menu is a list of links so it should be marked up as such. It's an accessibility feature that provides structure to your navigation... If you turn off style sheets a list of unstructured links become one line. You've used > characters to separate your items, minimising the impact, but not everyone does. It's not a consideration for everyone but if you're aiming for RNIB or WAI compliance it's something you need to think about.

If you are concerned with accessibility then an unstructured line of links can always be 'structured' by using [] around the link. These can be contained in a span with display:none; so that the button is not affected but the links will show as [link 1] [link 2] [link 3] etc when viewed in text only browsers.
There are many ways to provide accessibility without the need to resort to lists.

Perhaps we should await the introduction of <nl> navigation lists which are intended for use with links.

Links to Page 1 to 5 at the Bottom are broken!

Ah... that's probably my fault in not explaining properly. The Page 1 to 5 links do not actually lead anywhere, they are just to show what the list would look like when viewed without css. Sorry for the confusion.

THANK YOU!!! Fantastic tutorial. I have been looking for four hours for this tutorial! Thanks for the basic approach - I'm new to css and those other tuts have me totally baffled. Well done :)
