View Full Version : DTD question

12-15-2002, 01:05 AM
hehheh, sort of carrying on from beetle's thread about DTD's, I have an ickle question (very specific hence new thread):

You know the link stuff you can do in CSS; for instance a:link, a:visited, a:hover and a:active...?

Well, I want to add some more states: normal, over, down and downover are my needs however over = hover and normal = link.

Therefore I just need to add the down and downover attributes... any idea how? See, it's not just like adding a tag attribute to a DTD is it? (Hence new thread) I need to have some JavaScript in there somewhere, to tell when the mouse button is pressed down.

I can do the code to change the states, and detect the mouse button, that is dead easy, basic coding. However, so far my feeble attempts to add this to a DTD so that I can use a:down has caused some problems!

I have been trying to wade through some of the very interesting code which jkd sent me on a related subject (thanks jkd - it's top work but I will probably take a while to figure it out! :D) however even though I think the method is similar I can;t work out how to do it.

Please can someone give me a tip? jkd... you could probably do this blindfold :) lol

Thanks peeps

Custom tags is one thing, custom CSS is not.

No browser exposes any way of adding extra pseudo-classes via CSS. As a matter of fact, as far as I can tell it actually parses out anything it doesn't understand, which means implementing some Javascript to read rules wouldn't even be that effective.
