Using [Margin-right: auto] instead

I was able to create the same effect by doing: .name { margin-right: auto; } Does it matter which method you use? Or does it just depend if you want the nav bar to line up with the margins of your page?

Hi Bryan, While it may be possible to get certain desired outputs using different methods, there should be a very good consideration of how browsers across most platforms interpret the method we use when writing code. However, best practices are always advised in order to avoid different rendering outputs across browser platforms. This is one of the reasons why websites like caniuse.com was developed to help developer know more about methods and rules to use in their software development journey. Therefore, it is a good practice to ensure that best practices are adhered to so that there will be conformity with the rules used by browser manufacturers, in order to get the desired output desired across multiple platforms.

Best regards, Tobechukwu
