In www.berlinkauf.com are main menus like Products, Trade Community, Directory... How can i fit the width to whole header area? Left side from the menu Products, you see 2 or 3cm white space. I want to stretch menus towards left side. I tryed with changeing values of width:655px; but it never worked. Can anyone fix this?
ul#nav {
      list-style:none;
      width:655px;
      text-align:center;
      clear:left;
      float:left;
      font-size: 14px;
      line-height:2em;
      padding:1px 0 0 0;
}
* html ul#nav{padding:0}
ul#nav li{
      display:inline;
      border-bottom:0px solid #7EBE5F;
      margin-right:0px;
}
ul#nav li a{
      padding:4px 5px 4px 5px;
      position:relative;
      border:1px solid #bbb;
      text-decoration:none;
      color:#0A3300;
      font-weight:bold;
      white-space:nowrap;
      border-bottom:2px solid #7EBE5F;
      background:#fff url(layout_images/button_hmenu.gif) repeat-x left top;
      letter-spacing:-0.01em;
}

Hello,

All you need to is play around with this value

ul#nav li a {
background:#FFFFFF url(layout_images/button_hmenu.gif) repeat-x scroll left top;
border-color:#BBBBBB rgb(187, 187, 187) rgb(126, 190, 95);
border-style:solid;
border-width:1px 1px 2px;
color:#0A3300;
font-weight:bold;
letter-spacing:-0.01em;
padding:4px 5px; <!------------------------------- increase the second value to 11px

Hi, thanks. i just copyed the your code and uploaded. It shows now much better, wider. It went 1 cm towards left side, but not quite. There are still white spaces on the left side. How can i pull all menus more towards left side?
