Step-by-Step: How to design similar to overlapping Veer.com navigation?

Can you please provide the HTML, CSS. and any JS so that I can get this up.  It looks like there are some PNG files for the drop shadow, but I'm not sure.

Thanks,

I turned off JS with Firefox, and the rollover state does not activate.  So I guess this is a JS question.

Ew. It uses inline JavaScript to swap images onmousover and onmouseout.

For something so simple I'd use CSS Sprites. Check this out: http://www.dynamicsitesolutions.com/css/background-image-switching-2/

It's a bit more complicated than a box rollover -- how does it fill into the navigation to the left, to make the overlap feel?  Roll over a tab, then you can see that the navigation immediately to the left has a piece that highlights.

After looking at it a bit closer, it seems you're right. It is a bit more complicated than that. It also changes the image of the neighbor on its left side.  So it's not feasible to do this without JS because of the double switching.

Yeah I'm going to need step-by-step instructions.  I have already previewed the image files, but I do not know how to implement the JS.
