    Okay you need to use that in your code where the sprite is called to – also, the reason the overlay isn’t working is that you’re setting the background of the LI to the image and then telling it to change when the a within each li is hovered.

    So what you need to do is edit your CSS and remove the a:hover, changing it to liclass:hover

    Did you try to erase the white background by zooming in? You can just remove the white background layer and save as .png.

    liclass:hover?? do you mean ; #navigation .uac li.hover ??? or #navigation .uac li:hover??

    Apologies. What I meant was the a:hover needed to be changed to just the classname for each li.

    I’ve edited it for you;

    THANKS!! do you know why when I hover over the image it moves? how can I fix this?

    Yes, what you need to do next is make sure that you arrange the padding/margins, heights & widths of each list item so that when it is rolled over there is space for it and it looks more natural.
