Hello,

I am trying to sharpen my css skills by practicing with the following
design:http://rayhanm.com/images/JeanBrunoneHome.png

You will find the html page at :http://rayhanm.com/brunone.html

I am having some trouble with the nav bar. I wondering if someone would be kind enough to help me out.
The "contact me" portion of the navigation slides out of the nav bar when I make the page larger/smaller.

I also had to make everything in the nav bar left-align because centering things breaks the nav bar into two lines. Does anyone know why this is happening? What can I do to make the nav bar more flexible so it does not break when I make the page larger/smaller? Thank you in advance.

Can you post your CSS?

Have you tried using a DIV for your navigation aswell. I use this for my site and the links don't exceed their borders.

I used the following css along with eric myer's reset.css. I don't understand what you mean by using div for the navigation.
Could you kindly elaborate?

body {
	background: #C0C0C0;
	font-family: Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;
	font-size: 12px;
	color: #7D8B9B;
}
h1,h2,h3,h4 {
	text-transform: uppercase;
}

label {
	color: white;
}

#container {
	margin: auto;
	width: 768px;
	background: white;
	padding: 14px;
	border: 2px solid #A3ADB8;
}

#nav,#mid{
	margin-bottom:2px;
}

#nav,#address {
	background: #7d8b9b;
	height: 30px;
	line-height: 30px;
	background: #7d8b9b;
	color: white;
}
#nav li,#address li{ 
	display: inline;
	list-style: none;
}

#nav li a {
	padding-left: 30px;
	padding-right: 30px;
	text-decoration: none;
	color: white;
	font-size: .9em;
}

#quick_search {
	text-align: center;
  background: #948E99;
	height: 343px;
}
#quick_search h4 {
	margin-top: 20px;
	margin-right:15%; margin-left:15%;
	color: white;
	font-size: 14px;
	border-bottom: 1px dotted white;
	font-family: Arial;
	letter-spacing:.2em;
	
}
#quick_search h4 #quick{
	font-family: "Times New Roman";
	font-weight:bold;
	font-style: italic;
	font-size: 1.2em;
}

#quick_search table{
	margin-right:15%; margin-left:15%;	
}

#quick_search table td{
padding: 4px;
}

#quick_search table select{
	color: #948E99;
}

#top,#mid, #bottom, #quick_search {
	overflow: auto;
}
#bottom {
	border: 1px solid #A3ADB8;
}

#bottom h3 {
	font-family: "Times New Roman", serif;
	letter-spacing: 1em;
	font-size:16px;
	margin-top:5px;
	margin-bottom: 15px;
}
#bottom p {
	padding-right:40px;	
	line-height:1.5;
}
#agent_pic {
	float: left;
	margin-right:20px;
}

#footer {
	margin-top:4px;
}

#address{
	text-align: center;
	
}

#address li{
	border-right: 1px solid white;
	padding-left: 10px;
	padding-right: 10px;
}
#address .last_li {
	border: none;
}

Here you have div's for the top and mid. Create one for your navigation. Something like:

HTML

<div id="nav">
		<ol >
			<li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
			<li><a href="#">Buying</a></li>
			<li><a href="#">Selling</a></li>
			<li><a href="#">My Listings</a></li>

			<li><a href="#">Elegant Homes</a></li>
			<li><a href="#">About Me</a></li>
			<li><a href="#">Contact Me</a></li>
		</ol>
</div>

In the CSS define the dimensions for the nav container, the contents of that container should be limited to its dimensions.

Which web brower did you all view this in...
Cause i normally use firefox...
But when i viewed the page in IE6 (which probably many still use)...
Well you gotto see it for yourself...
