Menu positions

This thread may not belong under "CSS Menu Writer", but I will give it shot. Is there a way to change the position of the horizontal menu? What I mean is that the menu currently starts on the left side of the navigation div. I want it to centered in the navigation div. What is the best way to do this? Thanks for your help.

create a div around the menu that is set to the exact width of the menu and give the navigation div auto margin on the left and the right.

<div class="navDiv" style="margin: 0 auto 0 auto;">
<div class="menuDiv" style="width:550px">
<Menu Here>

this assumes the menu is 550px wide. Remember that total width includes padding.

So if you have 5 menu items with 5px padding on the left and right, and each menu item is set to be 100px wide, your actual menu width is:
(100 + 5 + 5) * 5

110 * 5 = 550px
