[thelist] css/div problem....

i have the following sample html, and the test css. i'm trying to figure out
how to get the 'tab' css to allow the text in the '<a>' boxes to wrap if the
text extends beyond a certain width. i'm only concerned with the 'tab'
portion of the html, so i left out the rest of the css file that i'm using.

i've tried a few options with no luck. given that i'm not a guru with css, i
thought i'd ask the list!

any help/comments would be appreciated.
