Home Forums CSS z-index or box-shadow issue on nav ends Re: z-index or box-shadow issue on nav ends


Sure, with pure CSS you might save bandwidth if you use it to replace graphics that are significantly larger than the CSS code, but in this case, images for this menu wouldn’t be large at all.

To use pure CSS just for the sake of using CSS instead of graphics, I never got that to be honest. Just because you can, doesn’t always mean you should. I believe it’s personal choice, and depending on the situation, not necessarily a defined “way to go”. It can cause a lot of other issues….like not displaying correctly in Firefox. ;)

It can be fixed easily in Firefox (change the top value of .ribbon-wrapper and .ribbon-wrapper2) but I’m sure it will break in other browsers then. This is what I meant with the complexity of all the absolute/relative positioning, I wouldn’t say it’s such a good idea.
