Help with calling the drop-down images from a sprite image.
Our forum uses quite a lot of customized emoticons, and so I wanted to see if it was possible to call the emoticon images from a sprite image, thereby presumably saving quite a lot of overhead.
After a bit of fiddling I have worked out how to call the emoticons from a sprite image, but am lost as to how I could make the correct part of the sprite image appear in the drop down box.
I'm a plucky trier, not a professional, and whilst I can now find my way around css, js has me baffled.
Is what I am looking for achievable?
If so, can someone point me in the right direction, bearing in mind my lack of expertise?
Thanks if anyone can help.
