try with lesser padding of navi links

what i think he means is there is a 3px "margin" off to the far right bc his nav lists are not "big enough"... i calc'd it down and the remainder is 3px btw...
actually going back i must have missed something, bc adding a hidden 3px div in there was a little too small... what about taking your overall width and dividing by 8 and then setting px accordingly?
