I want to give a li element a fixed width but it doesn't work. Currently I can give an a element a width in Firefox but it doesn't work in Internet Explorer. The problem is that I have longer descriptions on mouseover / hover in the navigation and so I have to use fixed widths (even if I don't like them) because otherwise the buttons are moved on mouseover / hover. You can see it on my site. It should work with Firefox but has problems with Internet Explorer.
Thanks in advance.
PS: I already tried to set the width to the li element but it didn't work even if I set display: block; float: left;
