I like the red background when mouse is hovering over text, is explicit and bold.

One issue is with new T-logo, red logo with red background does not play nice, especially with anti-aliasing. Any way of showing a less dark hover color just for images, keep the color the same for text?


I've been trying to deal with this problem for a while already. I don't have the solution. Please try to see how far you can get. -- AC
try this:
.patternTopBar img {border: thin transparent solid } /* stops hover-shudder */
.patternTopBar a:hover img { background: white; border: thin red solid;}

If technically possible, I suggest to use a less dark hover color for all images. See the Dakar target icon in te sidebar and you know what I mean.


To make it global, drop the .patternTopBar from each line.

I've made a change to the css (SVN 6779), but cannot check on a windows machine at this moment. On Mac it does solve the problem:
:link:hover img,
:visited:hover img {


This solves the issue, also on Windows.

How about retaining a clue for hover with a light hover color for images, such as #FFCA91 which plays well with the text hover background color #D6000F.

  • But that isn't so nice for transparent GIFs. -- AC
