Home Forums CSS Float left combined with bullets: problematic Re: Float left combined with bullets: problematic


Why are you using “float: left;” anyway. If you used absolute positioning then you wouldn’t need to float anything ever. “float: left;” or “margin-top: 5px;”, etc, is like saying, please move this element a little to the left, or a little towards the top, somewhere on the screen. This no longer makes sense when you consider the types of devices that are used to access the internet today. Positioning elements with fixed pixel values, or “float somewhere, but we aren’t sure exactly where”, is pointless. Not all devices have the same resolution, or pixel size for that matter.
