Veerle on CSS-Based Tabs

Veerle Pieters has posted a great walkthrough on how she and Roger Johansson created a beautifully-degradable tab interface for a list element in a recent real estate site redesign. This is a brilliant bit of insight into styling well-structured, semantic markup – at it’s core just a standard unordered list with some contained markup in each list element – that looks beautiful (vertically ‘expanding’ it’s image backgrounds to handle different amounts of content within), and degrades beautifully when CSS is turned off.
