Move text baseline in <li> 2 px up

Question by Narek

I have implemented my webpage menu by inline li-s of ul. li has a colored border and contains a. Now onmousehover I need to change color of the text inside a and move it 2px up by not moving the li border. How can I do that?

Answer by Starx

The trick is too remove the top padding a bit and increase the bottom padding a bit to maintain the markup integrity.

I have set up a simple example of what you want. Check it on the fiddle here
