I am trying to modify the width of the buttons in my navigation bar.  I created a class and modified the width but it doesn't seem to be "taking".  I put a yellow background on it to identify the width setting for each button.  Yes, I know the image is resting over the navigation.  That is another issue I am wrestling with and it was posted on another question.  

Basically, in a nutshell, I need the navigation to sit to the right of the logo and I need it to be one line.

You can also see a tan background when you mouse over the buttons.  It extends to the right of the yellow button because I can't figure out how to make it more narrow.

width: 30em;
margin:0px; \\optional
or
width: auto;
padding:5px;
margin:0px; \\optional
or
min-width: 30em;
max-width: 70em;
margin:0px; \\optional

Are you giving me options or should I put in all the "or" statements?

How about just removing the width from this style?

#nav li {
    float: left;
    padding: 0;
    width: 8em;
}

Hi All,

Been dealing with an emergency for another client and haven't had time to look at all suggestions.  I hope to find time later this week.
