    Exclamation Vertical CSS sprite menu

    Hello, I am trying to make a CSS sprite vertical navigation bar. I have used simillar principles to the horizontal, but changed the x and y values around. For some reason it is just not working. Below is the description of the image, CSS code and then the html. Help!

    • Each button is 150px by 150px
    • The normal states are on one side
    • The hover states are next to the normal
    • next to hover state I have put a down state, but I don't know how to work that



    Code:
    #navbar
    {
    	margin:0;
    	padding:0;
    	width:150px;
    	height:750px;
    	background-image:url(../Images/navbar.jpg);
    }
    
    #navbar li
    {
    	margin:0;
    	padding:0;
    	list-style-type:none;
    	width:150px;
    	height:150px;
    	text-align:center;
    	float:left;
    	line-height:40px;
    }
    
    #navbar a
    {
    	display:block;
    	height:150px;
    }
    
    #navbar a:hover
    {
    	background-image:url(../Images/navbar.jpg)
    }
    
    #btn1 {width:150px; height:150px;}
    #btn1 a:hover {background-position:-150px,0;}
    
    #btn2 {width:150px height:150px;;}
    #btn2 a:hover {background-position:-150px,150px;}
    
    #btn2 {width:150px height:150px;;}
    #btn2 a:hover {background-position:-150px,300px;}
    
    #btn2 {width:150px height:150px;;}
    #btn2 a:hover {background-position:-150px,450px;}
    
    #btn2 {width:150px height:150px;;}
    #btn2 a:hover {background-position:-150px,600px;}
    Code:
    <div id="menu">
    
    <ul id="navbar">
    <li id="btn1"><a href="index.html">Home</a></li>
    <li id="btn2"><a href="characters.html">Characters</a></li>
    <li id="btn3"><a href="blog.html">Bob Blog</a></li>
    <li id="btn4"><a href="contact.html">Contact Us</a></li>
    <li id="btn5"><a href="colour.html">Colour Bob</a></li>
    </ul>
    
    </div>

    Hope I make sense, thank you

    Gemzilla.
