I am working on a horizontal navigation bar in which the bar is one color and all the list items have a white background. So it looks kinda like buttons without actually using images. I have successfully centered the text vertically within it’s little box. But all my little boxes are sticking to the top of the green navigation bar. I’m stumped. I’ve tried applying margins and padding to the container, the bar, the ul container, the ul the li and the a. I’ve tried both inline and floating. Nothing has any effect at pushing those little boxes down.
What am I missing?
I am also curious if I could center the whole ul bar across the top, but that is less essential.
