Doing it with style

CSS MENUSHorizontal tabs with slide down sub menus

Date : 6th January 2011

For all modern browsers

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


I have been meaning to produce this menu for some time as an alternative to my jQuery/javascript version which can be seen here jQuery horizontal tabs with slide down sub menus.

This version has the same action and in Firefox 4, Opera, Safari, Chrome, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad the sub menus slide down/up when hovering the arrorws.

All the top level list text can be links to other pages and hovering these will have no effect on the sub menus. But if you hover over the adjacent down arrows the sub menus for that section will be shown.

Tested in IE6, IE7, IE7 emulation, IE8, IE9, Firefox, Opera, Safari, Chrome, Flock, SeaMonkey, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. It should also work in Mac browsers. The iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad required additional code and styling to use a top level link in place of the div:hover to open the sub menus.
