Probably an obvious question, but I'm not seeing the answer. This is mostly asked out of curiosity, since I can think of at least one way to do it manually.

I've removed the nav links from the header of a page I'm designing because I couldn't get it to look right with the banner (I needed it to align right in the top right corner with each link on a separate line or as one long line along the bottom right and it kept collapsing to a list in strange ways). I'd like to continue to have the links available on the page.

Is there a simple way to move the nav links from the header into the sidebar, or should I just add it to the links list or a custom text section and hardcode the links in?

Or if there's a way to force the tags into a list that aligns to the right in the header, that would work too....

It's definitely possible with only CSS, as grrliz has done similar effects in many of her layouts at thefulcrum. Most of them involve absolutely positioning the list or a big margin to make the nav links look like they're part of the sidebar. If there's a header image in those layouts, it's narrower and displaced to make room for the nav links.
If you had to put the nav links in the actual sidebar, you could also re-write some of the printing functions.

Thanks. That's pretty much what I had figured out.

I'm still new at this and next time I'll design the header to work around the limitations of the nav links. For now I'll just keep playing with it until it looks reasonable.
