ok i'm not sure whats wrong with this. but eachtime itry to set it to fixed it gets all messed up.
this is the working code:

ul {
position:fixed;
left: 20%;
list-style: none;
}

ul a {

color: #FFF;
text-decoration: none;
display: block;
padding: 5px 5px 5px 10px;
height:20px;
width: 125px;
background: #888877;
}

ul a:hover {
color: #ffffdd;
text-decoration: none;
background: #999988;

}



ul li {
border-bottom: 1px solid #FFF;
border-right: 1px solid #FFF;
float: left;


}

Okay... 2 questions for you...
1) What are you attempting to do?
2) Why are you using "fixed" ?

If you want something "locked" into position, try using "position: absolute;".

Please be warned... position: absolute will make itself "positioned" in realtion to the last positioned item.
So if the item/container element that the ul is in is not positioned (either absolute or relative, then the chances are your UL will position itself in relation to the body of the page!

Please supply more information (and if possible, a link to a demo/example page) so people trying to help can give better advice and not resort to guessing ;)

1. I'm making a menu like rollover menu.
2. Im using fixd because each time i resize the browser everything moves in my web page. So if you resized the broswer everything would be ontop of each other and everything would be moved.

Well, you may want to rethink your design.
It's not hte menu at fault if "everything moves".

As I said, try looking at a list apart... they have several references to CSS based (JS enhanced for IE) menus.
Or the SuperFish with JQuery for a more accessibile option.

i mean everything moves if its not fixed. and i made everyhting else to fixed and it works fine. but when i try to make the Menu to fixed it doesnt work.

If you can, post the URL or use a "tinyurl"... I'll have a look and see what can be easily done to fix things.

Okay... is there a reason for that behaviour?

If you want fluid/flexible designs, there are other methods to achieve it than that.

Have you tried making 3 seperate content divs?
first one for the banner.
second one for the nav.
third one for the content.

they will automatically stack beneath each other.
Then you can apply a left margin to each to get the gap on the left.
(do not assign width to the 3 container divs! They wil lautomatically take up full widht, so the margin will just move in the left edge - if you try to apply a width, it may result in them pushing off and out of the right hand side in some browsers!).

Of course, I may be misunderstanding your design ideas... in which case I can only suggest that you alter the location of the navigation div - try puttin it inside the content div at the top, that way it will be positioned where you expect it to be (as it's inside the content div), and the text should automatically fall beneath it.

Hope that helps.

Okay... I hope this helps a little...

Not quite what you had...
it does "fit" in the page,
it does "alter width" with the window,
it does "resize-text",
it does not "slide" over bits over each other.


The only real problem I can forsee is the Banner width.
By making hte banenr image 900px, you automatically overun widthwise inregards to those viewing with 800 res (okay, a probable minority... but still worth thinking about?).
I'm also not seeing why the 20% margin/gap on the left?
is it simply to have a right aligned site?


Well, if that helps (i.e. I'm not missing the point), let me know.
