    Need help making this horizontal menu more elegant

    Is there word spacing or something like that? Or do I have to create a separate div for each link? I tried using inline with a line item but IE ignores it so I'm going straight text.
    HTML:
    Code:
    <div id="topnav">
    	<div style="padding: 16px 0 0 20px">
    	<img align="absmiddle" src="images/red_rt-arrow.jpg" alt="" width="14" height="14" border="0">&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="index.html">Home</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    	<img align="absmiddle" src="images/red_rt-arrow.jpg" alt="" width="14" height="14" border="0">&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="bog/index.php">Blog</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    	<img align="absmiddle" src="images/red_rt-arrow.jpg" alt="" width="14" height="14" border="0">&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="bio.html">Bio</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    	<img align="absmiddle" src="images/red_rt-arrow.jpg" alt="" width="14" height="14" border="0">&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="links.html">Links</a>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
    	<img align="absmiddle" src="images/red_rt-arrow.jpg" alt="" width="14" height="14" border="0">&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="contact.html">Contact</a></div>
    	</div>
    CSS:
    Code:
    #topnav {
    	font-family: Times, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	position:absolute;
    	left:299px;
    	top:0px;
    	width:471px;
    	height:64px;
    	background-image: url(images/topnav.jpg);
    }
    
    #topnav a:link, #topnav a:visited, #topnav a:active {
    	font-family: Times, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	font-size: 14px;
    	color: #000000;
    	text-decoration: none;
    }
    
    #topnav a:hover {
    	font-family: Times, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	font-size: 14px;
    	color:#FFFFFF;
    	text-decoration: none;
    	background-color: #D9DAFF;
    }
    /*----- THIS DIDN'T WORK ------ */
    #topnav ul { 
    	padding: 10px 20px 0 0; 
    	display: inline;
    }
    
    #topnav li {
    	padding: 10px 0px 0px 10px; 
    	list-style-type: none; 
    	display: inline;
    }
    Thanks very much for your help!

    You could just use margins on the links themselves, you don't need to have them inside a div.
