I have created a list for navigation (from a tutorial) for the top navigation of my page, however in FF it is displayed as if broken, with half the list appearing below the rest. This div is called #navcontainer.

As for the rest of the problems in presentation, I am hoping there is a solution!

I also have a left hand logo displayed in an H1 tag but would like a list to appear directly across from this (called #pipe_menu ), as well as a search box.

Is this possible or - because a header tag and list tag are block level elements - will one have to go underneath the other?

Is there a workaround?

Many thanks

    Sorry I had got this menu

    Sorry I had got this menu from a tutorial so thought it was okay. I have validated the code now and have got my menu working in FF. The list above was putting it out of line.

    However the problem still remains...how do I add another list of links for navigation and a search box (div) across from my H1 (background image) as these would be block level elements? Is is possible??

    n.b. I am working to replicate a set design from the clients own layout.

    Here is the new HTML, troublesome list removed,

    Many thanks
