please look at the example at this link

http://sudhakargolakaram.co.in/horizontallist.html


my question is about the 1st horizontal list, i want the list to look like the 2nd list

when i created the 1st list i noticed that for few links the border-right of white color i have given is not stretching like the other 3 links which have few words.

i need the list to look like it is in the Second list

if i use height value for the list ie6 has an issue with that.

so as a workaround in the 2nd list for all the links where the right border was not extending like the other links, i created a class and give this class an extra bottom padding for all these links and for the links which had the extended right border i did not use any class

so this worked fine, in case of the first list is there a way i can change my code so that all the links will have an equal height of the right border


please advice.

thanks.

thanks for replying

the code you mentioned worked in all browsers
you have specified height for
#topmenu1 .menu1 ul li {
height: 30px;
}
whereas i specified for
#topmenu1 .menu1 ul li a {
height: 30px;
}


however i checked the output in many browsers
the code works fine in ie6 ie 7 firefox and opera, in chrome and safari the last list item was starting in a new line so i had to reduce the left padding

from padding: 10px 20px 5px 16px; to

#topmenu1 .menu1 ul li {
padding: 10px 20px 5px 14px;
}


because chrome and opera were not be to adjust to 16px like other browsers
can a style sheet for these 2 browsers be written exclusively, either an external one or embedded style

please advice

thanks

instead of 16px make it 15px;



#topmenu1 .menu1 ul li {
display: inline;
float: left;
margin: 0 5px 0 0;
padding: 0 0px 0 0px;
border-right:1px solid #FFFFFF;
height:30px;
padding: 10px 20px 5px 15px;
}


i have check it with 15px and it works fine in chrome and opera.

which opera version are you using.

the issue was with chrome and opera

chrome version = 3.0
safari version = 3.2.3

i have also tried with 15px now it works in chrome but not in safari, for safari i have to use 14px

also without making this too complicated, one question as you noticed in my code for the last list item i have given a class so that the last list item does not have a right border, this last list item appears as a link based on the left and right padding
#topmenu2 .menu2 ul li a {
padding: 10px 20px 20px 15px;
}

due to this a small portion after this list until the right edge of this containing div when i move the mouse a hyperlink does not appear as the padding is not stretching till the right edge of the div

is it possible to have the last list item appear as a hyperlink until the right edge of the containing div

thanks
