CSS DEMOSRunning with sprites

Date : Pre 2006

For all modern browsers

This demo is too wide for your mobile screen.
Please view on a tablet or PC.


This is a demonstration of the :hover and :active/:focus states of a link. Hover the mouse over the front, middle and rear of the image to reveal a higher definition image and click the hover image to reveal the highest definition image. Opera users will need to hold the mouse button for the third image to remain on the screen.

The original demonstration by Avalonstar moved the link background whereas this demonstration keeps the background in the same place and moves the link instead for :hover but moves the background for :active and :focus.

This car image has been chosen because it fits my layout and demonstrates the three different image states fairly well (and doesn't infringe any copyrights).

Tested in IE5.5, IE6, Firefox 1.06, Opera 8, NN8, Mozilla 1.7.5

Because of all the time and effort spent in producing this demonstration I would ask that you respect my copyright.
