Hi all I can't agree that it's generational: a couple of years ago I was involve in user testing for a site aimed at young people - 18 to 25 years old; daily internet users. A number weren't aware of the convention that a corporate logo in the top left corner of the screen is almost always a

[WSG] Centering all items in a li

2008-05-17 Thread Darren Lovelock
Hi list, I've been trying to find a solution that will allow me to vertically center all the items in a li. The big problems i've got are that the li's are a non-fixed height and are floating to the left. So that kills the negative

A demo would be helpful, but have you tried something along the lines of the following: div id=footer ul lia href=/link1Link1/a/li lia href=/link2Link2/a/li ... /ul /div div#footer{text-align:center;} div#footer ul li{display:inline;list-style-type:none; } Cheers, -- Matt Fellows

Hi Matt, I'm trying to vertically align all the items inside an li. This could be achieved with the valign of a table cell, but tables are not an option! The li's are floating left. I want the labels, inputs, p's etc to be vertically aligned in their containing li. This is one of the lists I'm

Sorry Darren - it was late an i was tired! Vertical/Horizontal, Left/Right... I don't think there is a need to do anything too exciting, the container of the list should just need a text-align:center. Is this basically what you are after? I have made the div only 300px wide so you get the

For those suggesting line-height. I think that is a very bad idea, because if the line is more than 1 line, then the height will end up being number of lines x line-height. For example - setting line-height at 200px. 3 lines of text would make it 600px high with 200px between text. Cheers Adam
