What’s the most ‘pro joe’ way to center this ul horizontally and vertically on the page?
I was hoping to avoid any widths so it’s dynamic according to whatever is the longest sentence.
Well, given the size of your list, I don’t think vertical centering should matter. Now, regarding horizontal centering, you won’t do much without a given width; could it be 50%, 500px or whatever pleases you.
Try this on the #nav element:
margin: 0 auto;
And remove both z-index and height.
> Nice, also, if you inspect css lines 45 to 55. What would I use those spans for? I got the code from somewhere and I just want to understand better.
Looks like you don’t use span at all, you can safely remove those lines.
Yeah, but he’s talking about an horizontal list, not a vertical one. :)
