Nice time,

can't fine some good information about revolving of images in CSS.
will use this tricky for my first page about DSL (http://prowodnik.de/internet-anbieter/1und1.html)

example code:

a[href^="mailto:"] (line 1235)
padding-top: 5px;
padding-right: 20px;
padding-bottom: 5px;
padding-left: 0pt;
background-color: transparent;
background-image: url(/images/icons/icon_mailto.gif);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-attachment: scroll;
background-position: right center;

how could I turn this image "icon_mailto" around 15 ?

best thanks.

Hi there,

As far as I know, CSS alone cannot rotate an image, you will need to look into using javascript or better yet just rotate the image beforehand in photoshop.

Best regards,

somewhere I see a tutorial only CSS, but it was for background. It was fine to make an Effect of a lot of paper in background. Sadly I cann't find it again. So I thought, maybe it were possible use it for my images too.
