sorry; should have mentioned that I tried that. sorry sorry. made it
100% width, bg color and all; no joy. I've put that back in again, for
the current fooling around.

if I add a border to the new navcontainer declaration, it appears
*above* the ul, not around it. seems like the ul is following the
navcontainer, not being inside it

I'm feeling dumber. I kinda thought I'd get CSS, but despite studying
the box model et al, it still doesn't always behave the way I expect.
