With the correct (x)HTML and CSS you can create tabs as easily as
$.tabs("container"); // first tab on by default
If you want to have the second tab “on” by default:
$.tabs("container", 2); // second tab on
Klaus has an example that you can view to see the end result.
I had to do something to add to Klaus’ contribution so I came up with a simple form that you can use to generate the markup for the tabs.
It’s very simple. Just type a name for each tab (up to 5) and click the button at the bottom of the form. The next page will generate the html you can copy and paste into your file.
Here is the link for the tab markup generator.
