I've got myself an unordered list of links that I'm turning into a CSS nav menu, much like the 4 buttons at the top of a list apart. The unordered list sits inside a div that is 80% wide. What I am aiming to do is make the list items never wrap to the next line (or almost never) but instead evenly space themselves to fill up the full width of their container div. If I had 4 buttons I could set each ones width to 25%, but I want this stylesheet to work no matter how many buttons I have. Is that possible?

Well, no matter what you were thinking about when you typed that, Steve, thanks for the linkage. I went through the Selectorial tut there, and loved it. Nice and simple to understand, and each time I go through a different CSS tutorial, I learn something new. I think I learned the most from this site so far.

Russ Weakly writes some of the best CSS tutorials I have come across. (I think it helps that he co-chairs the Web Standards Group.)
A list of his articles and tutorials is here:

I really recommend Colored Boxes:
http://www.maxdesign.com.au/presentation/process/
one of the only truly methodical studies I have ever read about how to approach a CSS design in a sane, predictable way. Every now and then I read it again, just because it's so well done.
