  *{padding:0; border:0; margin:0;}
      #demo a{
      display:block;
      width:99px;
      height:41px;
      margin-right:3px;
      float:left;
      background-image:url('menuimg.png');
      background-repeat:no-repeat;
      cursor:pointer;
      text-indent:-9999px;
          }
     #blend{clear:left; overflow:auto; margin-bottom:20px;}
     #blend_home{background-position:0 0;}
     #blend_home:hover,#example_home.hover{background-position:0 -48px;}
     #blend_blog{background-position:-90px 0;}
     #blend_blog:hover,#example_blog.hover{background-position:-90px -48px;}

     #blend_contact{background-position:-450px 0;}
     #blend_contact:hover,#example_contact.hover{background-position:-450px -48px;}
</style
>

Code:

<%
@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default3.aspx.cs" Inherits="Default3" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

        #blend_about:hover,#example_about.hover{background-position:-180px -48px;}
        #blend_services{background-position:-360px 0;}
        #blend_services:hover,#example_services.hover{background-position:-360px -48px;}
        #blend_contact{background-position:-450px 0;}
        #blend_contact:hover,#example_contact.hover{background-position:-450px -48px;}
     </style>
<
script type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/jquery-1.4.1.min.js"></script>
<
script type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/jquery.blend-min.js"></script>
<
script type="text/javascript">
     $(document).ready(function () {
         $("#blend a").blend(500);
       });
</script>
</
head>
<
body>
<
div id='demo'>
<
div id="blend" style="border: thick groove #008080">
