Default Creating a Database Driven Top Menu Bar with CSS

Hi there

Is anyone able to help out with this one?! I need to create a top navigation menu, horizontally, using CSS but this menu needs to be generated from a database. How do I go across a page?

I can see how to do it for a vertical menu, because I can wrap the repeat region around the <li></li> tags, but don't know where to start from a 'horizontal' point of view!

All help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance
