Hi Jo-an, the site has moved to a new host and any links to the comments will no longer work. You should be able to access them on this site though.

Hi Stu, I have a prob with unclickable image links in but IE 5.0 WIN. Can I send a testpage mailwise (if possible)?

Wow, this is seriously great stuff as I've always considered using "floats" as some hack to get what we want. One question though, any reason you aren't using this method on your site? Any drawbacks I'm not aware of?

hey Stu, I have to say I really like these types of menus and have tried incoprerating the centered menu onto a new layout for my site, and what I've noticed us that most of the time it would work great without any errors, but after you browse the site a little more it would messed up a little. what would happen is one of the links would jump above or below the actual line its suppose to be on so instead of it having say 3 links on one line it would push one of the links on top of the other one, making it 2 lines.. would you know any kind of solutions for this?

Hey Stu, excellent site! I'm trying to combine both the snazzy border technique with the Horizontal non-floating list with unkown width and I am having trouble with the snazzy curve at the tops of menu listings in IE6. IE6 is not correcting the width setting of 1px in the * html hack:

* html .menu {
display:inline-block; /* for IE only */
width:1px; /* IE will expand to fit menu width */

It's only allowing the snazzy top 1px of space and therefore showing on the left curve of the snazzy tops on each of the menu headings.

Any ideas?

A tiny question: Does the centered example of the floated horz nav works
in IE5 MAC too: as seen on
<> There was a mention in
your prior version of your site that
Bruno Fass. added the coding for including IE5 MAC support ??

Yours Sincerely,

Is there a way to make the entire menu take a fixed width? I have tried to get the second menu to take an exact width of 760px however I just cannot get it to work, in explorer, no probs in firefox!

Man - these menus are totally screwed in my IE7b2. I mean really, really screwed!
I just get a list of boxes, one below the other, and all the width of the container. At least, I think they are, but they disappear behind the adverts - BAD IE7, go to your room!

Hey, I have seen the same thing on several sites when using IE7b2. I believe the problem spans from the unknown widths. Usually happens when using width:auto;. It expands to fit the total available width.
