Re: [WSG] old horizontal list formatting issue in ie

Hello Kevin,
Not sure what you mean by stretch to the width of the ul in ie

Do you mean to distribute them evenly within the width of the ul?

Please clarify a little :)

 Hi,

 Its late and i forget what makes these li's stretch to the width of the ul
 in ie?


 ul.bos_image_index {
 margin-left: 0;
 padding-left: 0;
 white-space: nowrap;
 }

 .bos_image_index li {
 display: inline;
 list-style-type: none;
 border:1px solid black;
 }

 .bos_image_index li a {
 border:1px solid pink;
 }

 .bos_image_index li:hover {
 border-bottom:2px solid #333;
 }

 .bos_image_index li img{
 height:45px;
 width:60px;
 }

 for example see:

Hi Matijs,
Floating the images/ anchors contained in the li's left next to each 
other is what im trying to do.
But right now each li streches to the width of the ul so the cant float 
left.

Even distributing them evenly would be fine though.

You're running into specificity problems, as you have styled li
completely different other places and those styles override the low
specificity '.bos_image_index li' styles.

Make the selector...

#rightcol .bos_image_index li {...}

...and the styles will kick in.

Georg
