Horizontally Centered Navigation List

The goal was to create a horizontally centered “tabbed” navigation menu using CSS without having to specify widths on any elements. The menu had to work with the implementation of multiple background images. I have seen this type of thing attempted on various occasions but haven’t seen anything too successful. So with that, I rolled up my sleeves put on my black rimmed glasses with tape holding them together and got to work. The end result was what I think a successful attempt at a seemingly simple horizontally centered navigation menu with no widths specified.
