Trying to replace text with a background image in CSS - I'm assuming the fact that my list is display:inline could be causing the issue

Does anyone know how to fix this?


#header{

	margin: 0;

	padding: 0;

	height: 85px;

	width: 100%;

	text-indent: -9000px;

}

#header ul {

	margin: 0;

	padding: 0;

	width: 540px;

	list-style: none;

	display: inline;

}

#header ul li {

	margin: 0;

	padding: 0;

	width: 175px;

	height: 40px;

	display: inline;

}

#header ul li a.home{

	width: 92px;

	height: 32px;

	font-size: 33px;

	background: #fff url('../images/sprite.gif') 0px 0px no-repeat;

}

#header ul li a.services{

	width: 105px;

	height: 32px;

	font-size: 33px;

	background: #fff url('../images/sprite.gif') -105px 0px no-repeat;

}

#header ul li a.aboutUs{

	width: 150px;

	height: 32px;

	font-size: 33px;

	background: #fff url('../images/sprite.gif') -255px 0px no-repeat;

}

#header ul li a.contactUs{

	width: 160px;

	height: 32px;

	font-size: 33px;

	background: #fff url('../images/sprite.gif') -410px 0px no-repeat;

}

		<div id="header">

			<ul>

				<li><a class="home" href="index.php">Home</a></li>

				<li><a class="services" href="services.php">Services</a></li>

				<li><a class="aboutUs" href="aboutUs.php">About Us</a></li>

				<li><a class="contactUs" href="contactUs.php">Contact Us</a></li>

			</ul>

The width and height properties don't apply to (non-floated, non-absolutely-positioned) elements with display:inline. Those <a>s need display:block

What happens if a visitor has images disabled in their browser? I use and recommend the Gilder/Levin Method of CSS Image Replacement: http://levin.grundeis.net/files/20030809/alternatefir.html
