hello,
I am a newbie to css. i would like to create a nav menu on the left of my site:
www.bigmamas.com.au

what is the best way to go about it? flash? fireworks? css?
The links are in a solid box background, the fonts arent usual to web fonts, and i would like them to roll over and highlight.
If i use coding will i still be able to have this font?
if i use flash or fireworks i dont like it how the whole screen refreshes for a split second to get to each page.

any tips? cheers

The easiest way would be to use the 'pages' widget then use CSS to style it.

Hello,
Ive managed to find some css code to style the page widget. When i view the page with IE7 though, the red box isnt there. ive changed it to a .jpg, it was a gif before. is it true that IE doesnt read .gifs? Cheers
