If possible, can you tell me how please.
Thanks in advance.

there are a couple of methods. Two I can think of offhand. the first uses buletpoints and all sorts of CSS properties and is <i>extremely</i> unstable. The second uses <i>loads</i> of code, and IMHO is a complete waste of space.

There are possibly some others I have forgotten about.

All methods I have seen are complicated, messy and not worth half the hassle they involve. The only reason they are ever used is simply to prove the point that it <i>can</i> be done. It would take me far to long to explain it and I don't have any links I can think of.

I have to repeat ratt's question, why no images?

Rat, thanks again for replying here.
The reason i dont want to use images is that i have made a homepage where i use them. It takes more than 20 seconds to load one page on a 12Mbps DSL connection.
I really dont know if the images are the cause, because i also used a lot of javascripts to make a drop down menus and rollovers.

Voila! http://www.geocities.com/seneteach/main.htm
It is still underconstruction tho. If someone figures out the problem, please let me know.
Thanks for taking your time to read this.

I got round 15-20 sec to load on dialup. Good enough for me .... ?? ...

BTW I see you have different choices on your menu for:
Code: [ Select ]
C++
Visual C++
Borland C++
  1. C++
  2. Visual C++
  3. Borland C++

Those are all the same. C++. Visual C++ is just MS compiler with IDE and a bunch of propritary libraries. Same for Borland.
My point is that you should put those in one and the same section: C++

the fact that it's hosted by Geocities might be your major speed problem :)

Loads up in 4-5 seconds on Cable here (I'd definitely thing about switching your left navigation bar from images to text though).

Thanks Ventsy V, Axe.
I will put Visual C++, Borland C++ and C++ in the same menu.
Axe, i have thought about that. But if i switch the nav bar form images to text, i wont be able to add the rollovers effects.
Btw, Axe how did you make the effects on the nav bar of this site?

Thanks for clarifying things for me.

Yes you can, just make the little circle and the background colors into a background image on text links, using a css hover.

Thx rtm223. Sounds a pretty good solution eventho i dont know what a css hover is. Anyways i will run a search on the net to see if i can find a good tutorial about it.

I tried this code but it doesnt work. rollnav.gif is the image i want
to display on the background on rollover.
CSS code
Quote:
.leftcolumn a:link {
color: #CC6600;
text-decoration: underline;
}
.leftcolumn a:visited {
color: #FFCC33;
text-decoration: underline;
}
.leftcolumn a:hover {
color: #333333;
text-decoration: none;
background-color: #006699;
background-image: url(rollnav.gif);
}
.leftcolumn a:active {
color: #CC6600;
text-decoration: underline;
}

HTML code
Quote:
