Hi Nan, If you want the navigation container to appear to stretch the same length as the content, you'll need to wrap the nav & content in a containing element (div), give the containing element a background color and then float the nav and content. Be aware there are browser quirks and bugs with floated content that touches other floating content (e.g.: the IE6 peekaboo bug), so you may want to look at something like YUI grids (http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/grids/) if you want to invest a little learning time to get a bullet-proof, cross-browser layout. :) Paul -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Nan Harbison Sent: Monday, February 18, 2008 10:52 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] css container div is not working in firefox Sorry I didn't think to add a link, I sent that last email before I had finished it. Here is a sample of this page that works in IE and not in Firefox: http://www.projecthealthychildren.org/newsite/micronutrients.php I started adding multiple <br />'s to the bottom of the navigation, knowing full well this is a horrible, childish solution. This is a work in progress, of course.
