I am converting a PSD to HTML , and am stuck on this part.

The attached menu is comprised of tabs.

I know there are a hundred ways to do this, but I need a little nudge.

How would I take this menu (just the tabs)  ideal result
...and convert it into valid CSS/HTML , when all I have is this...

 blank background

I purchased this template as a PSD and am trying to convert to HTML.

This part has me stumped.

Can anyone show me an example of how I would do this?

I assume, correct me if I am wrong, but I would think we would need to somehow make the corners rounded by slicing the image?

Of course the ideal solution would be something like the attached code, EXCEPT of course, the proper CSS needs to be applied, which is where I NEED YOU - THE EXPERTS!!! lol


<ul>

    <li><a href = "#">Menu Item 1</a></li>
    <li><a href = "#">Menu Item 2</a></li>
    <li><a href = "#">Menu Item 3</a></li>

</ul>

for li : hover or active use the red color image.

Qwerty, I downloaded all the files, and only get a black page with a list vertical.

Probably something to do with paths.

Can you zip it? I am running apache.

To the rest, who provided links, again, trust me, I have tried.
