Re: [WSG] Is a list required for horizontal navigation?

Hi one of the benefits of placing links like this in a list is that you can float them left, right or none. When you turn styles off, or apply a small screen style sheet the floats get negated and the list aligns vertically. Yes, the list is semantically correct because you are producing a list

Hi All Been lurking for a while and finally got round to posting. So here goes; One advantage of the unordered list approach would be that you can eliminate quite a bit of your code (moving it to the css), as well as it being maybe more semantically correct (it is a 'list' of links after all).

Your :hover changes on menus create a contrast shift that is far too small. In short, make the :hover background lighter and text darker so we can still read the menu :) On Fri, 4 Feb 2005 19:21:31 +1100, Brendan Smith [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: Greetings all, I'm currently working on a web

Hi It would be better to float your list elements rather than set display : inline; on them. inline is better for text within a paragraph - phrase elements. With inline, your li's will be broken up over multiple lines if the line break (by containing box width etc) occurs within them.
