Block and inline

Recommended Posts

I have a simple question:What is the difference between an element with display:block and that is then floated, and another element with display:inline? Context: I see many tutorials on how to create horizontal navigation bars, some use display:inline (and that makes sense to me), but others use display:block and then float the list. What is the logic behind this?Thanks!

It's just that block elements have different abilities, which inline elements don't have and vice versa. For example, block elements can have explicit demensions, which is why sometimes you see links being displayed as blocks. I don't know other differences though.
