    Question Rollover CSS

    Hi, I have a rollover menu with drop down items but when I hover over the drop down items for it to become a link you have to hover over the text and not just the box. How can I fix this?

    Code:
    .navMenu {
    	margin-top:-20px;
    	padding:0;
    }
    
    .navMenu ul {
    	margin:0;
    	padding:0;
    	line-height:20px;
    }
    
    .navMenu li {
    	margin:0;
    	padding:0;
    	list-style:none;
    	float:left;
    	position:relative;
    	background-color:#000;
    	opacity:0.9;
    }
    
    .outer {
    	background-color:#000;
    	opacity:0.9;
    }
    
    .navMenu .inner {
    	background-color:#000;
    	display:block;
    	opacity:1;
    	width:200px;
    	background: -moz-linear-gradient(left, #174d7c 0%, #2f69a4 47%, #174d7c 99%, #174d7c 100%);;
    	background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, right top, color-stop(0%,#174d7c), color-stop(47%,#2f69a4), color-stop(99%,#174d7c), color-stop(100%,#174d7c));
    }
    
    .navMenu ul li a {
    	text-align:center;
    	font-family:Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
    	font-size:14px;
    	font-weight:normal;
    	text-decoration:none;
    	width:75px;
    	height:20px;
    	display:block;
    	color:#FFF;
    }
    
    .navMenu ul ul {
    	position:absolute;
    	visibility:hidden;
    	top:20px;
    }
    
    .navMenu ul li:hover ul {
    	visibility:visible;
    }
    
    .navMenu li:hover {
    	background-color:#000;
    	opacity:0.9;
    }
    
    .navMenu ul li:hover ul li a:hover {
    	background:#1e456c;
    	color:#FFF;
    	text-decoration:underline;
    	width:193px;
    	text-align:left;
    }
    
    .navMenu a:hover {
    	color:#FFF;
    	text-decoration:underline;
    }
    
    .navMenu ul li:hover a {
    	color:#FFF;
    }
    
    .navMenu ul li:hover li a {
    	color:#FFF;
    	border-bottom-left-radius:5px;
    	border-bottom-right-radius:5px;
    } 
    
    .edge {
    	background-color:#000;
    	opacity:0.9;
    	width:500px;
    }
    
    .navMenu .inner a {
    	text-align:left;
    	padding-left:7px;
    }
    
    #prices {
    	border-bottom-left-radius:5px;
    	border-bottom-right-radius:5px;
    }
    Code:
    <div class="navMenu">
    		<ul>
    			<li><a href="#">Home</a>
    				<ul>
    					<li></li>
    					<li></li>
    				</ul>
    			</li>
    		</ul>
    	</div>
       
        
    	<div class="navMenu">
    		<ul>
    			<li><a href="#">About Us</a>
    				<ul>
    					<li></li>
    					<li></li>
    				</ul>
    			</li>
    		</ul>
    	</div>
    
    
    	<div class="navMenu">
    		<ul>
    			<li class="outer"><a href="#">Stay Here</a>
    				<ul>
    					<li class="inner" ><a href="#">Book</a></li>
    					<li class="inner" ><a href="#">Rooms</a></li>
                        <li class="inner" id="prices" ><a href="#">Prices</a></li>
    				</ul>
    			</li>
    		</ul>
    	</div>
    
    	<div class="navMenu">
    		<ul>
    			<li><a href="#">Gallery</a>
    				<ul>
    					<li></li>
    					<li></li>
    				</ul>
    			</li>
    		</ul>
    	</div>
    
    
    	<div class="navMenu">
    		<ul>
    			<li class="edge"><a href="#">Contact</a>
    				<ul>
    					<li></li>
    					<li></li>
    				</ul>
    			</li>
    		</ul>
    	</div>

    Thanks

    Firstly, actually big box (menu item) as link is better, than just text link in drop down menu. Better for usability - the area is bigger and easy to access.

    Secondly, you just need to change it from
    HTML Code:
    <li><a>link</a></li>
    to
    HTML Code:
    <a><li>link</li></a>
    and add to this li css code with params of block (width, height, line-height, etc). And make it like menu items on cnn.com

    You can set the width of the a in the sub nav the same width as the list item. Just change this rule:-

    Code:
    .navMenu ul li:hover li a {
    	width:193px; /* add this width */
    	color:#FFF;
    	border-bottom-left-radius:5px;
    	border-bottom-right-radius:5px;
    }
    Not sure its validates having the <a><li>link</li></a>
