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

Here is the code :

HTML

<div id="mainnav">
        <ul> 
            <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">About us</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Features</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Reviews</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Pricing</a></li>
            <li class="download"><a href="#">Download</a></li>
        </ul>
     </div>

#mainnav {
    width: 100%;
    
}


#mainnav ul { 
float: right;
margin-top: 90px; 
margin-right: 50px;
border-bottom: 1px solid white; 
padding-bottom: 30px;
background-color: pink; 

   

}

margin-left: 20px; 


    
}

#mainnav ul li a {

color: white;
