Hi Guys,
Could you help me with this issue?
I created a list with left "dot" icon img.
I created a current class.When the link is correspondent to the current page the left icon will be changed to "heart" icon img.
The current class is working properly, but the heart icon is overlapping the dot icon. I would like to remove the dot icon when the heart icon appears.How to do that?

This is my sample:
#menu {
width: 250px;
height: 390px;
#menu ul {
list-style-type: none;
padding: 0px;
margin: 0px;
#menu ul li {
padding-bottom: 35px;
padding-left: 3px;
#menu ul li a {
color: #412b39;
text-decoration: none;
font-size: 18px;
background-image: url(images/dot-icon.png);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-position: left center;
display: block;
padding-left: 20px;
#menu ul li a:hover {
color: #F9C;
text-decoration: underline;
.current {
background-image: url(images/heart-icon.png);
background-repeat: no-repeat;

<div id="menu">
<li class="current"><a href="index.html">sample</a></li>
<li><a href="sample.html">sample1l</a></li>
<li><a href="sample.html">sample2</a></li>

My online sample:
As you can see the heart icon is behind of dot icon.
I would like to hide the dot icon in current state and just shows the heart icon.

You are applying the dot-icon.png background to the a element, but the heart-icon.png background to the li element. You need to make those consistent. For example, instead of ".current", you could specify this as the selector:

#menu ul li.current a

Thanks a lot for your help.
I didn't realize this detail.
