I haven't heard anything, and haven't found the original post in the
archives, nor any responses to it.

However, I seem to have come up with my own solution.

Originally, I had the entire list wrapped in the a DIV called
"nav-links."  I changed that DIV to a CLASS and redefined few things
in my CSS, and I got rid of the navN tags.

I now have a horizontal menu, and the HTML validates!  I'll still
have to validate the CSS to see if it's okay.

In retrospect, I wonder if defining the "nav-links" tag as a CLASS,
rather than a DIV, was really necessary?

Thanks again for your time.
