I'm trying to get my horizontal bar to fit right in middle of my page. It supposed to be 774px wide. I'm also trying to add round (curve) edges to both ends. Here's my css code that I got from a template. Right now, the nav bar is to the left, short and doesn't fit the whole page.
Here's the css

/* NAVIGATION MENU */
#Nav {
	margin: 0px;
	height: 27px;
	background: url(/images/contbg2.gif);
}

/*Nav Bar CSS rules*/


#nav {

	margin: 0;
	padding: 0;
	height: 27px;
	float: left;
	width:100%;
	/*
	border: 1px solid #42432d;
	border-width: 1px 0;*/
}

#nav li {
	display: inline;
	list-style-type: none;
	padding: 0;
	margin: 0;
	text-align: center;
}

#nav a, #nav a:link,
#nav a:visited {
	font-size:16px;
	color:#000;
	background: url(../images/nav-bg.gif);
	padding: 3px 16px 6px 16px;
	float: left;
	width: auto;
	border-right:1px solid #ACACE3;
	text-decoration: none;
	
	font: bold 1em/1em Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
}
#nav li:first-child a {
	border-left: 1px solid #ACACE3;
}
#nav a:hover, #nav a:active {

	color:#fff;
	background: url(../images/nav-hover-1.gif);
}







/*End of New CSS Rules*/
/*

#navLinks {	
	text-align: center;
	height: 27px;
	background: url(/images/nav.gif) no-repeat top center;
}

#navLinks ul {
	list-style: none;
	padding: 0;
	margin: 0;
}


#navLinks li {
	float: left;
	margin: 0 2em;
}
#navLinks li a {

	background: url(/images/nav.gif) no-repeat top center;
	height: 2em;
	line-height: 2em;
	float: left;
	width: 9em;
	display: block;
	
}
	


#nav a, #nav a:link, #nav a:visited {
	font-size: 16px;
	color: #000000;
	text-decoration: none;
	padding: 3px 16px 6px 16px;
	margin: 0px 12px;
	background: url('/images/nav.gif') no-repeat top center;
}
#nav a:hover, #nav a:active {
	background: url(/images/nav-hover.gif) repeat-x top center;
	color: #fff;
}*/
/*#navLeftEnd {
	height: 27px;
	background: url(/images/nav-left.gif) no-repeat top left;
}
#navRightEnd {
	margin-left: 17px;
	height: 27px;
	width: 774px;
	background: url(/images/nav-right.gif) no-repeat top right;
}*/

Here's the html file

<body>

<div id="container">

	
  <div id="header"> <img src="/images/header.gif" /> </div>
	  
	 	
<!--  <div id="Nav"> -->
    	
    
      <ul id="nav">		  
		  	<li id="nav-index"><a href="/index.htm">Home</a></li>
			<li id="nav-products"><a href="/products.htm">Products</a></li>
		  	<li id="nav-howitworks"><a href="/howitworks.htm">How It Works</a></li>
		  	<li id="nav-faq"><a href="/faq.htm">FAQ</a></li>
		  	<li id="nav-partners" ><a href="/partners.htm">Partners</a></li>
		  	<li id="nav-about"><a href="/about.htm">About Us</a></li>
		  </ul>	
		
<!--	</div> -->
</div>

Okay - you have told us what the width should be... any reason you haven't told your css ?
:)
Tell you Nav Container the width you want!
Additionally, you may want to wrappers/contaiers for the nav... once with the full width, one that "shrinks" around the content... then center the shrunk one.
As it's parent has a defined width, it should beable to calcualte a position from there!


please think twice before applying a set height for the nav - as text-resizing will cause the text to break out!
Further, what happens if the text gets bigger in such a short widht.... it could result in the links dropping to two lines not one... in which case it will break your design due to fixed height!

Basically... set widths, not heights!!!
