CSS MENUSOverlapping tabs

Date : 13th February 2007

For all modern browsers

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


A set of overlapping tabs using just one very small image and a little extra markup. The selected tab is always on top and the hovered tabs come to the front but remain behind the selected tab. A line of descriptive text will appear in the line beneath the tabs.

Clicking any of the tabs will reload the page with that tab shown selected.

The area of each tab is bounded by the black border and hover will only work within this border (including the 45 degree slope and any overlap.

This has been tested in IE6, IE7, Firefox and Opera, it should also work in Safari.

The single image used is here > tab image
