Hi There!

This is a follow-up question to

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Miscellaneous/Q_28272726.html

I've gotten my menu to look pretty much how I want with regards to spacing, except for one little piece. On my top menu, there is a darker shade of gray in my border that I don't want, and I know it has to do with the first LI, but I can't seem to get rid of it. Any suggestions is greatly appreciated!

you can view the code at

Cheers
Josh

It looks like it's down to the width of the first LI exceeding the width of your image. Just add a width to the first LI to match the image:

<li style="border: medium none;width:135px"><img src="/images/diagonal.png" style="vertical-align: bottom;"></li>

i think that's close, but when I add a width, the top light gray border doesn't extend all the way across...

i don't see the problem with Firefox.

anyway you can change the style of the first LI element in a elegant way by using the nth-of-type CSS3 selector http://reference.sitepoint.com/css/pseudoclass-nthoftype

So this doesn't require you to make your HTML dirty.

OK. That's because you no longer have 5 elements, each set to 20% width, so we need a different approach. How about this: keep the width as it was (i.e delete the new width declaration), align the image to the right and set the background colour of the first LI to white:

<li style="border: medium none;background-color:white;text-align:right"><img src="/images/diagonal.png" style="vertical-align: bottom;"></li>

great, works perfectly! I did have to add

margin-right:-1px;

to my image style because a white line was appearing on some resolutions, other than that, many thanks for your help!
