li.msgcollection {
    font-style: normal;
    background-color: blue;

hi all,

some css help requested, please!

the above css paints the background colour all the way over to the right
margin of each list element, though the text does not go that far. This
looks a bit weird. Is there any way to change this other than wrapping the
text in another element?

thanks in advance,
