This is kind of a complicated question. I have a site where I want to create icon links where the icons background changes when I mouse over the link element which is larger than that div. I also want to be able to align them to the top of the section if possible. Here is my public link so you can see it as I don't think I can explain it.
I want it to look similar to the 3rd section of this site with the icons but obviously without the changing section above it. http://www.exacttarget.com
Is this possible using css to control the circle background of the icons or should I just use images for the entire icon?
