I have a bunch of floated <ul>'s... I find if I add width the layout gets kind of messed up..........;-)
(not really messed up, just not what I want.. I would have to set diff widths for diff <ul>'s if I set widths... right now they're just the width of the widest <li>... which are all just one-liners...)

(there are "dividers" betw them (1px-wide divs w/left & right margins that act as vertical "lines" betw the <ul>'s... maybe you don't need width for the <ul>'s if they have these block elems in between them?)

asking b/c my understanding is CSS specs says you have to set width for floated elems (although w/o widths set they work fine in FF, IE, Chrome..)

thank you...
