  • problem styling multiple lists...

    I have an unordered list for my navigation, and it works fine. I'm trying to style another unordered list that will be used for lists in the content. Every time I give properties to the list item it affects my nav list item. I can fix this by going class happy, but I'm trying to avoid it.

    I have my nav styled like this, the list is in a div called navigation...

    #navigation { width: 980px; height: 60px; position: relative; margin: 0 auto;}
    #navigation ul { width: 800px; height: 60px; }
    #navigation ul li { float: left; display: inline; list-style-type: none; text-indent: -9999px}
    #navigation ul li a { display: block; height: 60px;}


    And I'm simply trying to style all my other lists like this...

    ul { font-size: .857em; font-family: Arial, Verdana, san-serif; color: #3f9aa1; list-style-position: inside; list-style-type: none;}
    ul li { margin-bottom: 22px; padding-left: 36px;}


    if I add a class to the navigation ul that will probaby work, but I'm tryign to avoid it. Thanks!

    If your main content is in a separate div from your navigation, then just specify the styles based on that div:

    #contentMain ul { font-size: .857em; font-family: Arial, Verdana, san-serif; color: #3f9aa1; list-style-position: inside; list-style-type: none;}
    #contentMain ul li { margin-bottom: 22px; padding-left: 36px;}

                It sounds like whoever ordered the graphic file is ordering the shirts through a promotional items vendor who is then outsourcing the work, probably overseas.

                I would certainly have a clause...

                CS6 is perfectly serviceable. As long as you aren't taking files from outside clients.
                Print vendors don't care. They might care if it's CS5 or 5.5 but 6 is just fine. At least for the next couple...

                Just addressing the CS6 vs CC issue, I'm actually still using CS6 for most things. Even though my workplace pays for a CC subscription for me, more often than not, I'll use CS6. That said, it's getting...

                I realize you've said your plan is to just have an "Etsy shop selling clip art or party theme stuff" but I think you may be getting ahead of yourself a tiny bit. Forgive me if you have already...

                Hey, at least you get THAT much. What a dream to actually create something.

                my boss:
                -mocks up idea in publisher.
                -"make that"
