When I first started working with lists, I made a really cool vertical list with a width and height, a separation below each list item, a background and a border for each item, put a link in each one, a hover effect over the rectangular area as well as the text link in each one. I was so proud.
Then a client asked me about controlling horizontal lists with CSS. Oh, I was just so knowledgeable that I was eager to show them the way. MAY DAY,,,,,,, MAY DAY WILL ROBINSON!!!!!
How can just one word, ruin everything. Vertical, Horizontal. My world was shattered. Terrible things happened.
Controlling a horizontal lists with CSS has a whole different set of rules than the vertical lists do. Trust me.
So, before you stay up all night trying to figure it out on your own, check out, “Controlling Horizontal Lists with CSS.”
