CSS Nav Inline Help

Hi

I'm looking for a little help. I'm starting on a new design and would like some help please. I have created a nav and the css but I want the nav links to be horizontal navigation and not vertical

Could you please tell me what css to change or add to make this happened.

I have tried #nav li as inline but that don't work

Thanks

add a width to the nav style, for example:

#nav {
width: 800px;
}

then on the nav li style, add a width and float property, for example:
#nav li {
float: left;
font-size: 85%;
list-style-type: none;
width: 110px;
}

Thanks Jason. That's great could you tell me what one to change as I only have a width of 550 and I need to make it fit?

you have 8 items in your menu. you have set the menu item width to 120px

that means that the nav width you need is 960:
8 * 120 = 960

if you wish to use 550px for the menu width, the menu item width would need to be set to 68px
550 / 8 = 68.75

I have done that and the TESTIMONIALS link don't fit in a size of 68 and the links after are squished up.

Please have a look again and thanks for the help / info

you wither need to use a smaller font so it will fit, use a shorter word, or use a larger div.

I think it would be ok as I have 85% font size but its getting some strange gap after contact.

Please see attached image. Also in my photoshop design the width is the same so it should all fit

the word testimonials does not fit the 68px box, even with the font size of 85%.

you are trying to fit something that is larger than 68px into a 68 pixel box. you need to make the available spacer for the word bigger.

ok so I need to use another word then but what is the blank space on the right hand side. The links should be right up to the right hand side and its not?

it is going up to the right hand side of the box, then going beyond because it is longer than the box you have have available.

the space you see is forced because you have a word that requires 72px width placed in a box that is 68px wide, the next box that contains the contact link is being pushed over to accommodate the testimonials link causing a space to show between the 2 68px boxes.
