Using CSS and GIF’s to animate a menu

Remember our good old friend the animated gif? There was a time when the ability to animate GIF’s made web sites a little more fun… or horribly obnoxious. It seems that no one really harnessed the power of animated GIFs, and today the only place they seem to be used are in banner advertisements when flash isn’t available.

One of the more powerful capabilities of CSS is the use of the :hover pseudo selector. It is one of the only abilities we have to alter the behavior of a website simply through XHML and CSS (and there is a debate if this even should be done, but this is more about capabilities rather than theoretical debates of what should/shouldn’t be done)…
