jQuery UI & Accordion: Customize Icons

This entry is part 5 of 7 in the series jQuery UI Accordion

jQuery UI Accordion – Customize icons

Customize the header icons with the icons option, which accepts classes for the header’s default and active (open) state.

Use any class from the UI CSS framework, or create custom classes with background images.
