CSS sprites can be termed as a method for reducing the number of image requests to a web page by combining multiple images into a single image, and display the desired segment using CSS background-image and background-position properites. Now that almost all major browsers started supporting CSS background-image and background-position properties, CSS sprites are getting more significance.

Sample HTML Code

div class="navi1">
  <ul>
    <li class="sm1"><a href="#"></a></li>
    <li class="sm2"><a href="#"></a></li>
    <li class="sm3"><a href="#"></a></li>
    <li class="sm4"><a href="#"></a></li>
    <li class="sm5"><a href="#"></a></li>
  </ul>
</div>

Sample CSS Code

.navi1 {
    display:block;
    height:72px;
    margin:0 auto;
    position:relative;
    width:525px; }

    float:none;
    list-style-image:none;
