Before you offer a solution please do not send me a link without an explanation. Do not post that my theme code needs to rewritten, etc. Do not tell me I need to learn CSS.

You're just wasting my time AND yours.

Please just offer me a real solution to the problem.

I have a Wordpress Twenty Twelve theme site here: http://rentawebguy.net/jenn/

The left menu at top (with a black border) needs the menu items aligned to the right. They should have no padding on the right side so that hit the right side of the box.

Thank you for looking.

Add this to your CSS:

#top-menu li:last-child {
margin-right: 0;
}

HTH,

Yeah, I forgot. You need to actually align it to the right :)

ul#top-menu {
text-align: right;
}
#top-menu li:last-child {
margin-right: 0;
}

You're welcome.
Glad I could help!

PS: if you're targeting old browsers, without support for last-child, you'll need to use the id of the last li:
li#menu-item-23 {
margin-right:0;
}
Which can be a pain to maintain if you decide to add another item to that menu.
