how to create file-tab style menu...

Hi everyone!  This is my very first time on this site and I would really appreciate any kind of help that I could get.  I'm trying to create a menu that looks like a bunch of file tabs(like the one that exists at for instance) on my webpage.  I'm using HTML but anything would help right now.  Please help as soon as possible as I need this for work!  Thanks in advance!

The amazon tabs are a single image.  If you right click one of the tabs and say save picture as, you will get all of the tabs in a single image.  Try it, right click and save picture as... to your desktop or something and then look at the image.

The image has been turned into an 'Image Map' meaning that the space in the image has been divided into different sections and referenced to different URL's.

Take a look at this site for some additional code:

The trick is to have different images with different tabs highlighted.  Then when you go to another page, you show the proper image with the proper tab highlighted.

There is also some excellent freeware available at that will generate the code for the image map for you.  Look under freeware, html tools.
