In bootstrap can i add rollover images to the nav bar or is it easier to custom make do this myself.

I did a custom menu with images as it works fine without issues but is there an easier way with bootstrap built in classes?

body{

margin:0;
padding:0;
line-height: 1.5em;
background-color:#96d4ff;
text-align:center;
 
}

#wrapper{
  max-width:980px;
   margin:auto;
 background-color :#dadbe5;
 border :1px solid gray;
}

 #heading{
	 height:240px;
	 /* width:980px;*/
	  background-size:100% 100%;
	  background-image:url(../img/head7.png);
	  background-repeat:no-repeat;
 }
 
 
 img, embed, object, video {

  max-width: 100%;
   
}

#head2 ul li 
{
     display: inline;
 }



#head2 ul
{
/*margin-left: 15%;*/
padding:0;
list-style-type: none;
border:none;
margin: 0;
float: right;
}	


#head2 ul li.welcome2 a {

  background:url(../img/redGrad.png); 100% 100% repeat-x;
  width:100px;
  height:50px;
	 
	 }
#head2 ul li.welcome2 a:hover {
	 background:url(../img/redGrad2.png); 100% 100% repeat-x;
  width:100px;
  height:50px;
  
}

#head2 ul li a
	{
	text-decoration: none;
	float:left;
	margin:0;
	border-right:grey solid 1px;

	}

<body>
<div id="wrapper">

<div class="container-fluid">
   
    <div class="row-fluid">
     
          <div class='span12'>

As your image name it seems it must be gradient background you can skip it just using gradient background in css like:

#head2 ul li.welcome2 a {

background: #a90329; /* Old browsers */
/* IE9 SVG, needs conditional override of 'filter' to 'none' */
background: url(data:image/svg+xml;base64,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);

Thanks for that. I guess it isnt obvious why the css3 code is better as it looks like a lot more work and it just does a gradient.
I want to use an image which may not be a gradient.
