Rendering of horizontal menu

I have been playing around with several different versions for a
horizontal menu, but I haven't been able to build a horizontal
navigation based on the vertical one featured on www.alistapart.com in
the article "taming lists".

However I have managed to build a horizontal navigation but it has a
slight hitch in Mozilla and Opera, but it's fine in Internet Explorer.
It is a strange occurrance of a 4 - 5 Pixel bar in grey (which is the
background if not activated) when I set one menu item to an active state
(it has no link then) by assigning a class to it. Here's an example of
the menu I am talking about: http://www.officecatering.de.

Anybody out there with a similar problem or even better a hint?

Regards,
Ansgar Hein

You have:

<li>...</li>
<li>...</li>

with li {display: inline;}

But the linebreaks between the <li>s are white space so what you have
is equivalent to <li>...</li> <li>...</li> and hence you get visible
whitespace between you <li>s that shows the grey background colour of
the surrounding <div>.

Removing all the whitespace fixes the problem in Opera. Mozilla is a
bit odd, removing the whitespace fixes it at every font zoom except
100%.

Hi Steve!

Amazing - that solved the problem, except for the 100% bug in Mozilla.
The code looks a bit ugly now, but I can live with that.

Hi, I'm working on a horizontal row menu, to use like folder tabs. Does anyone know what the CSS style "cursor" is supposed to produce? Any working samples?

Objective: Using an HTML list, create a horizontal nav menu with these characteristics: - All menu items have the same width at all times. - When the window width is reduced, the menu items stack, rather than creating a horizontal scroll bar. - The menu cluster is always centered on the window. See http://pages.prodigy.net/chris_beall/Demo/centered%20horizontal%20list.html

I am using a nested list for a simple drop-down menu. All CSS and XHTML validate. The menu is displayed properly in 7 different newer browsers including IE7, Firefox, Opera & Safari. I have implemented csshover.htc. In IE6, the menu displays on two lines and the drop-down (Calendar) does not work. Any clue where the problem lies? Url: caz-cc.com/index.htm. Thanks soooo much!
