1px borders doubling up, any workaround/fix?
I'd really appreciate any help with this css problem, I've spent hours trying to figure it out but I'm stumped.
I'm working on a CSS pop-out menu, and the problem I'm having is this:
I want a 1px border around each menu and submenu item, but in every place an item is touching another, the 1px borders obviously show up twice and then it looks like a 2px border.
Right now I've got it to work and validate, by giving everything a top & right border, and filling in the other ones manually. But it takes quite a lot of extra code for something so small.
I've assigned each list item which needs a border a class, then created a stylesheet rule for that class. Is there a better way?
I've run into another problem too, the menu items which have a submenu need to have a little arrow on the right hand side. Right now I've got that on there with a <span>, but I can't seem to position it. I can't give the list item a class, and set that as the background because it already has a class.

As a side issue, I would remove this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>
For what reason are you even using XHTML? Read what Arbitrator has to say about using XHTML for web pages: http://codingforums.com/showpost.php...39&postcount=9
Looks like you haven't finished the menu for IE6 functionality?
