Problem with line height when using <span> and "float:righ t"

97 New Member
Hi there,

I am building a small WebApp, and using a list to display country values for a specific variable. It should be like

Country A 10
Country B 4
Country C 125

So, what I have in CSS is this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. .variable {
  2.     font-size: 12px; 
  3.     font-weight: bold;
  4.     color: #7388a5;
  5. }
  7. .value {
  8.     font-size: 12px; 
  9.     text-align: right;
  10.     float: right;
  11. }
and the code like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <ul>
  2.   <li>
  3.     <span class="variable">Afghanistan</span>
  4.     <span class="value">10</span>
  5.   </li>
  6. </ul>
But, when using a 1px border around the SPANs, I see that the "variable" box is a big as the name, but the "value" boxes are taller, as if there would be a BR attached to the SPAN.

What is this, and how can I solve this?

Thanks for any hints!

I don't see this problem at all. Which browser are you using?

Ok, I stripped off all CSS code which was included in DIVs before, and started from scratch. Now it works again. Problem was related with parent-CSS.

Hi, Below I have an unordered list that is displayed on the same horizontal plane (thanks for the help yesterday).
