To update your style sheet

You can make your expandable sections stand out by updating your style sheet with a new class. Style sheets let you define the style attributes for the section. For example, you can make the section have a colored border, or a repeating graphic for the background. You can also add style attributes to fine-tune the spacing, margins, and overall positioning of the section.


This is the style class that we have defined for the sidebars in the HTML Help documentation:

DIV.sidebartext {
position: relative;
left: -22px;
height: 72px;
width: 300px;
margin-top: .6em;
margin-right: 3em;
margin-left: 0;
margin-bottom: .6em;
padding-top: .75em;
padding-right: 6px;
padding-left: .75em;
padding-bottom: .75em;
cursor: hand;
border-left: 4pt solid #339900;
background-color: #F0F0F0; }

Note  Because there are usually many style attributes associated with this kind of Dynamic HTML (DHTML) link, it is easiest to maintain the information as a class in a cascading style sheet, rather than as attributes in each instance of the link tag.
