    Is it possible to float the last one or two items in a menu to the right of a menu bar? Thanks.

    Hi zircon,

    You can change the positions of the items by setting the ‘margin-left’ in the HTML markup.

    Example:

                       <li style="margin-left: 50px;">Company
    <ul style='width: 180px;'>
    <li><a href="#About">About Us</a></li>
    <li><a href="#Press">Press</a></li>
    <li><a href="#Investor">Investor Relations</a></li>
    <li><a href="#CorporateAffairs">Corporate Affairs</a></li>
    <li><a href="#Careers">Careers</a></li>

    </ul>
    </li>

    I tried this and a different approach (using a jQuery selector to access the item after the menu was built and setting the float to right), and had a problem both times. When the submenu opens up, it opens off the page, since the menu item is too far to the right. Is there a way to tell the submenu to right-align to the parent element? I am working on replacing a program for a client and I just started working with these tools. Their current system has a main menu on the left side with a system menu on the right. I was trying to replicate the same behavior, but the submenu is a major problem.

    Thanks.
