How can I get the bottom-border to change its color accordingly to which button is hovered over?

CODE
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<style type="text/css">
.bottom {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #0FF;
}
.bottom1 {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #0FF;
}
.bottom2 {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #000;
}
.bottom3 {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #CCC;
}
.bottom4 {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #FFF;
}
.bottom5 {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #FFF000;
}
li {
display: inline;
}
</style>
</head>

<body>


<div class='bottom'>
<ul>
<li><a href='somewhere1'>Button #1</a></li>
<li><a href='somewhere2'>Button #1</a></li>
<li><a href='somewhere3'>Button #1</a></li>
<li><a href='somewhere4'>Button #1</a></li>
<li><a href='somewhere5'>Button #1</a></li>
</ul>
</div>

</body>
</html>

Something like this:
...
<li><a href="somewhere1" class="button1">Button #1</a></li>
...

CODE
a.button1:hover {
   border-bottom: 1px solid #0FF;
}

If you want each link to have another border-bottom, then give each link another class that you style in a similar way as above.

See the FAQ at http://htmlhelp.com/faq/html/links.html#link-hover and the QA's before that one.

I actually wanted to change the color of the border class 'bottom' where the bottom-border spans across the entire div instead of just the link.

I think you may need javascript or jquery for that

Could a mod move this topic to the js programing forum please?

As expected, staying with simple html doesn't work. >_<

Then use :hover with .bottom, .bottom1 and so on rather than with A. You can use hover with any element, but it only works with links in IE6 and older, but maybe that isn't a big issue.

Oh crap! I missed that you wanted different borders when different links were hovered. I move. blush.gif

Here's a JS idea. The color's hex value (without the # sign) is set in the class attributes:

CODE
<style type="text/css" media="screen">
li {display: inline;}
</style>

<ul id="nav">
<li><a href='somewhere1' class="f00">Button a</a></li>
<li><a href='somewhere2' class="00f">Button b</a></li>
</ul>

<script type="text/javascript">
var nav=document.getElementById('nav');
var a=nav.getElementsByTagName('a');
for(var i=0; i<a.length; i++)
{
    a[i].onmouseover=function()
    {
        nav.style.borderBottom='solid #'+this.className;
    }
    a[i].onmouseout=function()
    {
        nav.style.borderBottom='0';
    }
}
</script>

Just for fun here's a CSS version also. Not sure if it's as reliable as using JS:

CODE
<style type="text/css" media="screen">
ul {
position: relative;
width: 50%;
height: 1.6em;
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
list-style: none;
color: #000;
background: #eee;
}

li {display: inline;}

a:hover {border: 0;} /* necessary for IE6 */

a:hover span {
position: absolute;
bottom: 0;
left: 0;
width: 100%;
}

a.a:hover span {border-bottom: solid red;}
a.b:hover span {border-bottom: solid blue;}
</style>

<ul>
<li><a href='somewhere1' class="a">Button a<span></span></a></li>
<li><a href='somewhere2' class="b">Button b<span></span></a></li>
</ul>
