Good morning all,
My navigation bar has two rows when all I want it to do is go across the page. I've tried fiddling around with the CSS but nothing came up yet. Could anyone shed some light on me? :)

Here is my website link: http://www.angelfire.com/apwdesigns/strategicsolutions

And CSS link: http://www.angelfire.com/apwdesigns/default.css

At the moment you have a fixed width of 960px set by #header, and your menu buttons with the current text are too big to fit in this width.

Try reducing the padding on #menu a to:


padding: 2px 15px;

PS: If you use the code tags for your html it makes it easier to read your posting.
