So I'm working on a website.. and it's coming along.

Now, on the left hand side of the page is a menu. It's made out of a div which has .9 opacity. Inside it is a list, and I want the background of the list item to be white, with no opacity when the mouse hovers over it. Unfortunately, even if I set opacity to 1, it still doesn't do anything.. any help?

and critiques are welcome too.

P.S. Township info is the only link that works.

Eek..

Why not just make it a bg image? Opacity is bad news and slows down your load time. It's a memory hog.

Good idea. It's amazing how I can get caught up using fun CSS when an image would work just as well!:eek:

That Salford looks a bit nicer than the one we have in the UK.

Have you tried using a semi-transparent PNG as the default background image, and then set the background colour to white on hover.

If you do that you have to use a hack for IE.....filter:progID(????)....(do a search).
