Plain text (no links) in menu bar

Hi:

I'm trying to add a couple of plain text items to the Category menu bar, which I was told you could do by adding the typical # link in the WP menu and then removing the # and saving the menu.

The problem is that Ata is styling the text items differently, so not only am I not getting rid of the hover color, but also, now those items appear in a larger font size, causing them to kind of jump out of the allocated space.

I just need to know what to target in CSS to override this. Or maybe there is an easier way that I'm missing?

Thank you!

Leha

use FireBug in FireFox and examine a menu item that is a link and copy all it's CSS rules. Then look at the menu item that is NOT a link and create a CSS selector for it and use the CSS rules you copied.

BTW, why not leave it as a dummy link?

Well, my client didn't want people thinking something was broken when they saw the hover and the finger cursor but then nothing happened if they clicked on it. I had a background with company name already, and I thought about putting the two text items into the background, but one of them is a phone number, and it's nice if that turns into a call link on mobile, so real text seemed better.

I don't know why I have always resisted debuggers--that was actually really helpful!
