The first in the 'unusual' series.

Over the past week I have seen many versions of this type of 'menu' and they all use javascript or jQuery to get the functionality.

So after a little testing I have come up with a CSS only answer to do the same thing. All it needs is a nested unordered list.

You can hover over the text links to get a change of text color and also a highlighted image associated with the text, OR you can hover over the images to get a highlighted image and also have the associated text highlighted.

When an image is hightlighted all the other images will be 'greyed out'.

All this is done without any need for javascript.
