Fit text within one row

  1. Hello everyone,

    I'm working on a blog and have made a HORIZONTAL MENU in which I've put some categories.

    The width of all the content is 900px.

    The items I put in the menu are EXACTLY 900 pixels, one more letter or digit and it would create an extra row. And there is the problem. Even though it looks great in all browers, it DOES create an extra row when checking the site on my mobile phone (BlackBerry 9900).

    How do I fix this so it will ALWAYS fit on one LINE and if needed shrink within the row instead of creating a new row?

    All help and suggestions are very much appreciated!

  4. Know that all your hard work getting everything on one line is somewhat wasted since no two browser render web pages or text the same so some may still see two lines.

    Also know that if someone zooms in via their browser zoom controls, that can also blow up all your hard work.

    Also also know that if someone changes the default font size in their browser preferences your hard work could/will blow up.

    Just keep all that in mind.

    Yes thanks, that's exactly the reason why I want this has to be fixed.
    I've tried many things and looked all over the web and I did find similair threads but none are solved.

    Things like display:inline, or working with a width of 10% for every category (if there would be 10 items) doesn't work or don't give the right result.

    Once again, any help is appreciated!
