to everyone posting on this thread, if you're talking about liquor or
age, or small puppies, then your posts are off-topic and require a
<tip>... and not just a sissy <tip>, but something that has some
value to you, or at least a newbie...

so, <tip> away, folks...

<tip type="CSS">
Using CSS to set your navigation text links to display as block-level
elements (display: block ;) can be a good way to create a hit area
larger than just the characters of the text.

This can be very useful when you have a short word (News) in a small
typeface hanging in a giant container.  Now the entire are of the
container can be the hit area, often with only a little tweaking to
margin and padding attributes.

And while it doesn't work in NN4.x, it doesn't break it, either.
