    resolved [RESOLVED] Tabs shift left when hovering

    Why does my menu shift left when I hover over any one of them. And my contact tab hover box drops over the edge. Any help would be great.

    Code:
    body, ul, li {
    	font-size:14px; 
    	font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    	line-height:21px;
    	text-align:left;
    }
    
    #menu {
    	list-style:none;
    	width:740px;
    	margin:30px auto 0px auto;
    	height:43px;
    	padding:0px 10px 0px 20px;
    
    	/* Rounded Corners */
    	
    	-moz-border-radius: 20px;
    	-webkit-border-radius: 10px;
    	border-radius: 30px;
    
    	/* Background color and gradients */
    	
    	background: #014464;
    	background: -moz-linear-gradient(top, #0272a7, #013953);
    	background: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0% 0%, 0% 100%, from(#0272a7), to(#013953));
    	
    	/* Borders */
    	
    	border: 1px solid #002232;
    
    	-moz-box-shadow:inset 0px 0px 1px #edf9ff;

    At a glance, you have different padding settings on #menu li and #menu li:hover which would cause that kind of thing.

    I made some adjustments and everything looks even. But the tabs still jerk a little when you hover over them. I wanted o add my changes to this reply. But it doesn't allow me to.

    Hi, charisma44!
    I've also noticed that you have the border of #menu li set to none while the border of #menu li:hover is 1px solid. That means that the li item expands by 2px each time you hover it.

    You could give the #menu li border of 1px and it shouldn't move on hover.

    Hello ITZ. What I did was put the boarder to 0px and it stopped shifting. Thanks everyone.
