CSS lists and columns

filed under: @ 19:12:08 by 7colors

Some interesting articles on CSS techniques :

I use lists for the main menu of this site and, as I explain on the menu code page, I want the menu to appear as it does and the only way I know to position the links like that is to use four different unordered lists and float them .

I will read the multi-column lists article properly and see if it gives me a better solution.

Update- 2005/10/01 : I read the article and it does a different thing from what I want. Also, it is mostly an exercise in “taming” lists, as the ALA content warning specifies the article uses experimental techniques. I try to avoid excessive mark up and hacks as much as possible, sometimes I simply prefer to change the design instead of forcing it into realization.
