    I do use firebug. I know what the elements are and where they are. I understand that the menu expands to accomodate it's content. I just don't know how to make that menu extend further than that so that everything lines up. I changed the colors back at:

    to illustrate what's happening.

  4. ok, well that's good. you'd be surprised at the number of people who try to solve CSS issues w/o it.

    i didn't and still don't understand what you want to line up with what. maybe explain again or sometimes i pic is worth a thousand words.

    Sorry, the link I have up keeps changing bc I'm working with it right now so I'm sure if you went to it it was confusing.

    Here's a link to a screenshot I took of the issue. The issue I'm talking about is pointed out in red.

  6. why don't you assign the background color to the UL element then instead of to the individual links?

    .sf-menu {
    width: 100%
    background: #D6DFFF;

  7. The easy way to fix this would be to add to the #access instead of .menu.

    #access { width: 940px; margin: 0 auto; }

    Helga, you're awesome! I could kick myself right now; I knew it was going to be something easy I should have thought of myself! FYI I learned everything I needed to know to style the menu in the first place from your thematic menus demystified post. I have it bookmarked and refer to it all the time! Thanks for everything!

    Scott, thanks for the reply. I actually tried that yesterday and it didn't work. The menu was still cut off at the end.
