CSS Question

how to use images as radio buttons

I am trying to create a simple enabled/disabled radio button grouping on a form. I had planned on using an image of a check mark for enabled and an x disabled. I want the element that wasn't clicked to go gray to make it clear which is selected. Help would be appreciated.

Try the following

JQUERY

$(function() {
    $('input:radio').each(function() {
        $(this).hide();
        $('<a class="radio-fx" href="#"><div class="radio"></div></a>').insertAfter(this);
    });
    $('.radio-fx').live('click',function(e) {
        e.preventDefault();
          var $check = $(this).prev('input');
          $('.radio-fx div').attr('class','radio');
          $(this).find('div').attr('class','radio-checked');          
          $check.attr('checked', true);
    });
});

CSS

.radio {
    background: url(radiobutton_no.png) no-repeat;
    width: 16px;
    height: 16px;
}
.radio-checked {
    background: url(radiobutton_yes.png) no-repeat;
    width: 16px;
    height: 16px;
}
