Horizontal unordered lists non-floating

NO FLOATS HAVE BEEN HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THESE MENUS
Using display:table; which is understood by all the modern browsers, we can center a horizontal menu of unknown width by using margin values.
For IE6 and IE7 we can use display:inline-block; and display:inline; which gives the menu a width value and then position this using text-align.
When using display:table; in Firefox, you must also use display:table-row; in the following element to fix an intermittent bug in which the containing elements wrap around on to two lines.
This now works in IE6, IE7, IE8, Firefox, Opera, Safari(PC) and Chrome.

Commercial usage is also permitted without seeking approval, but I would ask that a donation is considered to support my work on CSSPlay.
