    resolved [RESOLVED] simple navbar problems

    I'm doing a navbar that I derived from 'IE HACK for "Eric Meyer's Strengthening the links"' at http://css.maxdesign.com.au/listamatic/vertical18.htm. I want to align the box from the left to the right, change the colors and width. I played around with the code and got just about everything to work except that the width is still funny.

    Here's my code:
    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd"> 
    <html>
    <head>
    	<title>Navlist experiments</title>
    <meta name="generator" content="TSW WebCoder">
    <style type="text/css">
    
    ul#navlist {
    width: 150px;
    \width: 170px;
    w\idth: 150px;
    padding: 0px;
    border: 0px solid #808080;
    border-top: 0px;
    margin: 0px;
    font: bold 12px verdana,helvetica,arial,sans-serif;
    background: #808080;
    }
    
    ul#navlist li {
    list-style: none;
    margin: 0px;
    border: 0px;
    border-top: 0px solid #808080;
    width: 150px;
    }
    
    ul#navlist li a {
    display: block;
    width: 150px;
    \width: 150px;
    w\idth: 150px;
    padding: 4px 8px 4px 8px;
    border: 0px;
    border-right: 20px solid #aaaabb;
    background: #ccccdd;
    text-decoration: none;
    text-align: left;
    }
    
    ul#navlist li a:link { color: #666677; }
    div#navcontainer li a:visited { color: #666677; }
    
    ul#navlist li a:hover {
    border-color: #ffffff;
    color: #ffffff;
    background: #000d33;
    }
    
    div#navcontainer {
    width: 150px;
    \width: 170px;
    w\idth: 150px;
    }
    
    </style>
    </head>
    
    <body>
    
    <div id="navcontainer">
    <ul id="navlist">
    <li id="active"><a href="#" id="current">Item one</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item two</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item three</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item four</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item five</a></li>
    </ul>
    </div>
    
    </body>
    </html>

    Then, here's the code on the website:

    CSS
    Code:
    ul#navlist
    {
    width: 158px;
    \width: 160px;
    w\idth: 158px;
    padding: 0px;
    border: 1px solid #808080;
    border-top: 0px;
    margin: 0px;
    font: bold 12px verdana,helvetica,arial,sans-serif;
    background: #808080;
    }
    
    ul#navlist li
    {
    list-style: none;
    margin: 0px;
    border: 0px;
    border-top: 1px solid #808080;
    }
    
    ul#navlist li a
    {
    display: block;
    width: 122px;
    \width: 158px;
    w\idth: 122px;
    padding: 4px 8px 4px 8px;
    border: 0px;
    border-left: 20px solid #aaaabb;
    background: #ccccdd;
    text-decoration: none;
    text-align: right;
    }
    
    ul#navlist li a:link { color: #666677; }
    div#navcontainer li a:visited { color: #666677; }
    
    ul#navlist li a:hover
    {
    border-color: #ff9000;
    color: #ffffff;
    background: #000d33;
    }
    HTML
    Code:
    <div id="navcontainer">
    <ul id="navlist">
    <li id="active"><a href="#" id="current">Item one</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item two</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item three</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item four</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Item five</a></li>
    </ul>
    </div>
    I think it has to do with w\idth and \width. I don't know exactly what they are so I just made an inference and crossed my fingers. I learned quickly that inferences and/or crossing your fingers is not something to rely completely on.

    The example you linked to is far more complicated than it needs to be.
    HTML Code:

    <!--
    ul#navlist {
     width: 158px;  /* Width for Standard box model */

     padding: 0;
     border: 1px solid #808080;

     margin: 0;
     font: bold 12px verdana,helvetica,arial,sans-serif;

    }
    
    ul#navlist li {
     list-style: none;
     margin: 0;
     border: 0;
     border-top: 1px solid #808080;
    }
    
    ul#navlist li a {
     display: block;
     padding: 4px 8px 4px 8px;
     border: 0;
     border-left: 20px solid #aaaabb;
     background: #ccccdd;
     text-decoration: none;
     text-align: right;
     zoom: 1; /* Invokes hasLayout in IE-Win, makes whole link clickable */
    }
    
    ul#navlist li a:link { color: #666677; }
    div#navcontainer li a:visited { color: #666677; }
    
    ul#navlist li a:hover {
     border-color: #ff9000;

    What if I wanted a width of 150px. I don't quite how you calculate the \width attribute.

    border: 1px solid #808080; will add 1px on each side, so for left and right side itīs 2px.

    \width = width + 1px left border + 1px right border
