Did no-one notice the icons in the navigation jump menu on moodle.org? smile

They don't work in all browsers, but I don't think they break anything. Worth putting into core?

I had not noticed (because IE7 does not show those background images for options) but I came back with Firefox and they really have a bracing effect + in IE they work like indent.

Nice,

Like Mauno, didnt see them becasue of IE7. But hey, why should IE7 start recognising fully compliant CSS now after all these years.

Looks nice in Firefox.

Absolutely. +1 for putting into core.

No I didn't. Safari and Opera don't show them either.

Is this nice Firefox only "effect" worth the additional load of the extra XHTML?

It seems to be supported in Firefox only, but isn't it also standard CSS 2.1? At least the specs say:
"'background-image' ... Applies to: all elements" (http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/colors.html#propdef-background-image)

But then again, I've mis-read specs before smile

Does it work via a stylesheet? (In FF I mean)

I had not noticed because I never use the Jump to... menu, which I find more confusing than helpful.

I think it looks good, so I am for it smile.

TBH though, I never use the Jump to menu. When I had a look at it today I wondered why is Jump to... in the menu mingled in with the other items and not at the top? Surely this would be a point of confusion for some users?

+1 from me too approve I've noticed that certain students use the jump menu a lot.

Tariq, I guess the reason why "Jump to..." is in the middle of the menu is because it replaces the activity you're currently in (the Themes forum in this case).

My question was posed from a usability point of view as Jump to... is not significantly different enough from the other items for it to jump out (no pun intended) as a non-option.
