I have a html list (like image attached) and I want to make:
- the bullet icons and text click-able
- The icons semi transparent.
- Then on hover the bullet icon not transparent.
- The text needs to stay white (not inheriting the opacity)

 example
I am struggling to make the icon click-able and semi transparent ... BUT the text not transparent.

<ul id="floorList">
   <li><a href="#">Ground Floor</a></li>
   <li><a href="#">1st Floor</a></li>
   <li><a href="#" >2nd Floor</a></li>
   <li><a href="#">3rd Floor</a></li>
</ul>

Open in new window


ul#floorList {
    list-style-type: none;
    padding: 0 20px;
    margin: 20px 0 0 0;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    width: 700px;
    float: right;
}

ul#floorList li{
	margin-bottom: 30px;
	float:left;
	width: 320px;
	padding-right: 10px;
}


ul#floorList li a{
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
	background-size: 50px 50px;
	background-image: url('images/icon_touch.png');
    opacity:1;
    padding: 10px 0 10px 60px;
	display: block;
	font-size: 25px;
	font-weight: 600;
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #FFF;
}



ul#floorList li a:hover, ul#floorList li a.active{
	opacity:1;
	background-color: #16A5B3;
}

Here's my attempt at it:
ul#floorList {
    list-style-type: none;
    padding: 0 20px;
    margin: 20px 0 0 0;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    width: 700px;
    float: right;
}

ul#floorList li{
	margin-bottom: 30px;
	float:left;
	width: 320px;
	padding-right: 10px;
}


ul#floorList li a{
    padding: 10px 0 10px 60px;
	display: block;
	font-size: 25px;
	font-weight: 600;
	text-decoration: none;
	color: #FFF;
	height: 50px
}
ul#floorList li a span {
	line-height: 50px;
	height: 50px;
	float: left;
	display: block
}

ul#floorList li a img {
	width: 50px;
	height: 50px;
	opacity: 0.5;
	float: left
}

ul#floorList li:hover a img {
	opacity:1
}

ul#floorList li a:hover, ul#floorList li a.active{
	opacity:1;
	background-color: #16A5B3;
}

Open in new window

<ul id="floorList">
   <li>
   	  <a href="#"><img src="img/images/icon_touch.png" alt="" /><span>Ground Floor</span></a>
   </li>
   <li><a href="#"><img src="img/images/icon_touch.png" alt="" /><span>1st Floor</a></span></li>
   <li><a href="#" ><img src="img/images/icon_touch.png" alt="" /><span>2nd Floor</a></span></li>
   <li><a href="#"><img src="img/images/icon_touch.png" alt="" /><span>3rd Floor</a></span></li>
</ul>

You can also use the :before pseudo-element if you don't want to change your HTML code.
So your HTML would stay the same, but then you can use this to create the icons using pseudo-elements:
a:before {
    background-image: url("http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/icons8/ios7/128/Hands-Hand-icon.png");
    background-size: 20px 20px;
    content: "";
    display: inline-block;
    width: 20px;
    height: 20px;
    opacity: 0.5;
}
a:hover:before {
    opacity: 1;
}

Here's a simple demo on jsfiddle.

I'm not sure which is more semantically correct, but using pseudo-elements keeps your markup a little cleaner. Though it can make your styling a little more complicated.
