HTML How to Make a Website Styling Web Pages and Navigation Polish the Navigation and Footer

Why does display: inline-block not work for the gallery list?

Once we implemented display:inline-block on the nav list, I tried going back and trying the same technique for the gallery image list.

I removed the clear from the footer and the float from the list, then tried to apply the inline-block instead.

However it just displays a vertical stack of the images in their 45% column, it doesn't seem to collapse down within the wrapper. Am I missing something? Should it not collapse like the nav links did?

Nevermind, got it working!

I had to drop the max-width of the #gallery li to below 45% to get it to work.

Not 100% sure why though...I guess a few extra pixels come into effect when doing it that way as opposed to using a float?
