    Well i plan on creating a site using fluid grid layout, for the mobile version id like to create either a small menu button that would open up to a menu.Something similar to designmodo(dot)com. Where it is just a small square icon that when clicked it will drop down a simple menu.For the version you would see when on a computer id like something simple as well.. id like to create a button with a rollover that effected the color of the text as well as add a drop shadow (if possible). I plan to use a font from the typekit option creative cloud offers and this is why it is causing a problem for me. I know i could create a button in photoshop and use a rollover image as the button to create the effect but i would not be able to include the font choice, and because of that i would not be able to design the way the font is effected when rolled over, atleast from the very little i know about this program.

    i am not a web designer. I enjoy this class and may continue to learn how to use this on my own, but i am in a very basic class and from the textbook i am learning from i am unable to reproduce the same thing from CS6 to CC.

    For the desktop version, you're going to just use CSS hovers. I'm going to show you an incredibly simple version. Here's the HTML:
    HTML Code:
    <nav>
    <ul>
    <li><a href="link">Menu Item 1</a></li>
    <li><a href="link">Menu Item 2</a></li>
    <li><a href="link">Menu Item 3</a></li>
    <li><a href="link">Menu Item 4</a></li>
    </ul>
    </nav>
    Now, the basic CSS:
    Code:
    nav ul li{
      float:left; /*Makes the li's sit horizontal*/
      width:25%; /*Just an example, since we have 4. Use 20% for 5, etc*/
      height:40px; /*An example height*/
      /* Add more styles as you see fit for background color and what-not */
    }
    nav ul li a{
      line-height:40px; /*Make the text center vertically by adding line-height equal to the li height*/
      /* The next 3 lines make the clickable area the size of the whole li element */
      display:inline-block;
      height:100%;
      width:100%;
      /* Style the links however */
    }
    nav ul li:hover{
      /* This is where you change the background color, add 
          box-shadow, etc. when the user hovers the menu item */
    }
    nav ul li a:hover {
      /* This is where you change font attributes like color or add
         a text-shadow */
    }
    nav::after{
      /* This will clear the floated li's */
      content:"";
      clear:both;
      display:block;
      height:0;
      width:0;
    }
