Centering Horizontal Menu

Recommended Posts

I have prepared Horizontal menu for my website, I have utilised css3 to prepare my menu. Following are the code


<body> <ul> <li> <a href="http://www.spinfonet.com/jobs.html">Jobs</a> </li>
<li> <a href="http://www.spinfonet.com/matrimony.html">Matrimony</a> </li>
<li> <a href="http://mydomain.com/property.html">Property</a> </li> </ul><img alt="Splogo" src="Splogo.jpg">
<ul> <li> <a href="http://mydomain.com/aboutus.html">Aboutus</a> </li>
<li> <a href="http://mydomain.com/aboutfounder.html">Founder</a> </li>
<li> <a href="http://mydomain.com/contactus.html">Contactus</a> </li> </ul>
css3 code
ul { list-style-type:none; margin:0 auto; padding:0; overflow:hidden; }
li { float:left }
a:link,a:visited { display:inline-block; text-align:center; width:150px; font-weight:700; color:#FFF; background-color:#98bf21; padding:0; text-decoration:none; text-transform:uppercase}
a:hover,a:active { background-color:#7A991A}
p { font-family:Times,Times New Roman; font-size:12px; margin:0; position:absolute; top:50%; margin-right:50%}
​I want to center my menu but same is not happening, how to do it?

This rul is probably the problem:

ul { list-style-type:none; margin:0 auto; padding:0; overflow:hidden;

ul is a block element and when no width is specified it defaults to width 100%. With width 100% there are no right an left margins. You need to specify the width to get the margins to have an impact.
