Topic: Creating a Vertical navigation block

I have managed to make my links vertical / underneath each other, how would  go about getting a border around them here
is my application view code and css code:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
<html xmlns="">
    <title><%= @title %></title>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" />
    <%= stylesheet_link_tag 'default' %>
    <div id="page">
      <div id="header">Kingston Direct</div>
      <div id="nav">
      <div class="content_box">
      <ul class="menu">
        <%= link_to_unless_current "Home",  :controller => "site",
                                            :action => "index" %><p/> 
        <%= link_to_unless_current "About", :controller => "site",
                                            :action => "about" %><p/>
        <%= link_to_unless_current "Help",  :controller => "site",
                                            :action => "help" %><p/>
      <div id="content">
      <%= yield %>

What do I adjust in my css code to get a navigation block around my links and to the left side of the page

  font: normal small Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
  font-size: 12pt;
    background: #fffdda;;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    text-align: left;
    position: relative;
    top: 0px;
    left: 250px;
    width: 800px;
    text-align: left;
    border: solid black 4px;
    height: 110px;
    background: url("")
                maroon no-repeat 16px 16px;
    color: White;
    font-size: 64pt;
    font-weight: 900;
    padding: 16px 16px 16px 120px;
    background: yellow;
    padding: 1em;
    text-align: left;
    background: #ececec;
    font-weight: bold;

#nav a
    color: Maroon;

Re: Creating a Vertical navigation block

I have responded to your other post

What you want and what you need are too often not the same thing!
When your head is hurting from trying to solve a problem, stop standing on it. When you are the right way up you will see the problem differently and you just might find the solution.

This question has nothing to do with Rails views, it's purely about HTML and CSS.

Therefore, i move it into the XHTML/CSS/JavaScript forum. Please post such questions there next time.
