Hello,

I currently have something like:

.bigButton .buttonLeft { background-image:url(bigButton-left.gif); }
.bigButton .buttonCenter { background-image:url(bigButton-
center.gif); }
.bigButton .buttonRight { background-image:url(bigButton-right.gif); }
.bigButton ...

How can I group the .bigButton contextual selector?
something like this:

.bigButton [
  .buttonLeft { background-image:url(bigButton-left.gif); }
  .buttonCenter { background-image:url(bigButton-center.gif); }
  .buttonRight { background-image:url(bigButton-right.gif); }
  ...
]

Regards,
DAvid

There's no way to do that.

why not simply join all 3 gifs using photoshop into a single button image and use --

BUTTON.big { background-image:url(bigButton.gif); }

That would be the logical way to do this, I see no reason to keep a button split into 3 parts, since you want a single click on the whole, it is only making for redundancy and cross browser problems, is it not?
