Hey Guys,

I am working on a navigation and I got the idea from a site I saw. It was a simple menu but when mouseover was done the one button would have a fade effect and the background color would change. He did not use images, just simply two background colors.

I have been searching to get an idea on the source code but everything about images. If someone can help me out on how I can create this effect with bgcolor and possibly have a source code I can see I would appreciate it.

You could use one of the popular JavaScript libraries like jQuery, Yahoo UI Library, or Scriptaculous+Prototype.

If you want to try and recreate that functionality on your own, the best place to look would be to see how one of those libraries did it (or how the site that you were looking at did it). It probably involves using the setTimeout method to change the background color every x number of milliseconds.
