I'm using a tab navigation script that assigns a class to the selected tab and a tab that's hovered over. For my particular layout I require the tab function to work on a span within each list item.
Please take a look here http://jsfiddle.net/spirelli/3a69W/6/
I need to change the background of the parent li of a hovered-over or selected span, and need help achieving this. I thought that maybe the parent could also be assigned 'selected' or 'hover' as a class (CSS for this scenario included). But there might be a cleverer option?
