Hi there after reading some treads here, i think i found the place that could answer a question i have for a long time now .

The title is self explanatory, but I realy wonder why so many ppl (including me sometimes ^^) are making menu out of ul heavily modified to apear inline, instead of simple div?
None of the ppl i talk with about css/html ever was able to answer that.
I'm not against the practice, i'm just curious of the why

Thanks for those who will answer to this unneeded question )

Some "ppl" aren't worth talking to.

Seriously? No one could tell you that UL stands for unordered list and a menu is a list of links? It's plain old SEMANTIC HTML. On the other hand, DIV has no semantic meaning.

hé hé that make sense thanks

hé hé that make sense Smile

thanks for the response, another silly question I won't be wondering about .

and even if I new what UL stands for, I wasn't clever enough to think semantically, so from my neophyte point of view, it was more not that clear that using UL and tweak them was more "logical" .

and, everybody is worth talking to, even if they don't have answers to all question I could wonder about Smile

have a nice day
