I don't know why the content of my navigation bar is listed backward when I did "float:right" (see code below)

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="index2style.css" />

            </ul>
            
        </div>    
    </div>
    <!-------- END OF HEADER -------------------------------->
