I have a slider control whose handle knob is styled in css like this:

.dynamic-slider-control.horizontal .handle {
      width:                        24px;
      height:                        24px;
      background-image:      url("slider-embedded-hand1.png");
      opacity: 0.5;
      cursor: pointer;

}

How, using JS or JQuery, do I change the definition of the background-image property? I want to change it to a pulsating gif when the control saves info back to the server, but I am drawing a blank as to how to change the nested class property.

Thanks!
