Hi all, hope you're all well.

I'm currenty designing a new site and was hoping to use Sprites for the first time... This leads me onto my question! I know how to set the variables with the image but when I mouse over the image isn't corretly highlighting the correct part of my mouseover image, can anyone spot the obvious error? :)

Thanks
Tim

Great stuff it works perfectly on highlight, there is one problem I notice however. Looking in IE and FF there is a difference in the horizontal positioning, do you know whats causing it?

Thanks

Adding a doctype may help and even if it doesn't make a difference, you should be using one anyway: http://dev.opera.com/articles/view/14-choosing-the-right-doctype-for-your/
