I have an image that kind of serves as an opaque background, and once hovered the opaqueness goes away. Also, I have a row of list items to serve as a menu, and once hovered the color of the text darkens to become more visible. This works great. As long as the mouse is directly over each element. The text element is directly over the background. What I want though is to have the background stay apparent as the text is hovered over, instead of the background becoming opaque again if I hover directly over the text. Can this be done without Javascript? Or is there a way with CSS3 to have the element that's being hovered over and another element change while interacting with only the list/menu elements? I would prefer a CSS solution if possible. Thank you in advance! Or even to put CSS inside Javascript? like have an if then statement for the text that says if there is a rollover event on the text/tables then it initiates the CSS :hover for the background?I want to use CSS rather than Javascript as much as possible because 1) I understand CSS and not JS, and 2) JS is ugly. Thanks again!!

CSS can only affect the element you're targeting and its descendents. Only Javascript can do what you want. Javascript can't interact with CSS :hover, you'll have to use mouseover and mouseout events to work with that.

You should read the Javascript and try to learn some basics first. Lean variables, arrays, loops and functions. After that, you can start learning events. Move on to HTML DOM to be able to access and manipulate HTML elements. All of it is in the tutorial.

How about something like this?

<script language="Javascript"><!--function ShowPicture(id,Source) {if (Source=="1"){if (document.layers) document.layers[''+id+''].visibility = "show"else if (document.all) document.all[''+id+''].style.visibility = "visible"else if (document.getElementById) document.getElementById(''+id+'').style.… = "visible"}elseif (Source=="0"){if (document.layers) document.layers[''+id+''].visibility = "hide"else if (document.all) document.all[''+id+''].style.visibility = "hidden"else if (document.getElementById) document.getElementById(''+id+'').style.… = "hidden"}}//--></script><a href="http://yourwebsitepage.com" onMouseOver="ShowPicture('Style',1)" onMouseOut="ShowPicture('Style',0)">Hove… Here To Show Image</a><div id="Style"><img src="The background image you were on about"></div>

Its iffey, but could I get some critiquing? thanks tons!

This doesn't look like the kind of things taught in the W3Schools tutorials. You could simplify that function to this:

function ShowPicture(id,show) {  if (show){    document.getElementById("id").style.visibility = "visible"  } else {    document.getElementById("id").style.visibility = "hidden"  }}

<!--function ShowPicture(id,show) {  if (show){	document.getElementById("id").menu_blue.visibility = "visible"  } else {	document.getElementById("id").menu_blue.visibility = "hidden"  }}elseif (Source=="0"){if (document.layers) document.layers[''+id+''].visibility = "hide"else if (document.all) document.all[''+id+''].menu_blue.visibility = "hidden"else if (document.getElementById) document.getElementById(''+id+'').menu_blue.… = "hidden"}}//--> <span id="menu_blue"><img src="Index_files/Images/menu_background.png"/></span><span><table id="menu_block" onMouseOver="ShowPicture('Style',1)" onMouseOut="ShowPicture('Style',0)"><tr><th><a class="menu" href="Index_files/HTML/About_Me.html">About Me</a></th><th><a class="menu" href="Index_files/HTML/Contact.html">Contact</a></th><th><a class="menu" href="Index_files/HTML/Blog.html">Blog</a></th><th><a class="menu" href="Index_files/HTML/Portfolio.html">Portfolio</a></th></tr></table></span>
