Nav Bar Floated/positioned Right

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to float or position the Nav bar to the right side of the screen, When i add that header image it moves my nav bar either to the left or changes it back to stack it like an generic unordered list.


I have been using floats and clears to get it positioned correctly?



Is there something else im missing?

I'm currently on vacation and don't have access to a real computer, so I cannot play around with your code, but looking at it, I notice the following, which may or may not have anything to do with your problem:


There is no such thing as a closing image tag - get rid of your </img> tags.

Your li and a tags are backwards, it should be

<li><a href.......>whatever</a></li>
