Hi guys,


Having a nightmare trying to work out what is wrong with my code.

Basically I am trying to get the bottom border to align with the ul text, so it starts at the 1st li and ends on the download button.

Bare in mind I have put a pink background on temporeraly just to understand my positioning.

Here is what I have so far

            <li><a href="#">Reviews</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Pricing</a></li>
            <li class="download"><a href="#">Download</a></li>
