Menu bars and position fixed

    I've created a new menu bar navigation scheme for my web site, but I've got a couple of problems.
    First, I don't seem to find a way to get rid of the indenting
    before the bullets.
    Second, in using a <div> with <span> to change styles for the
    headers, it seems to have killed the position:fixed of the entire
    I defined the men bar as a fixed position paragraph and used <span>
    to change the font size, background color, etc of the headers above
    the bullets.
    This produces some extremely weird effects on other browsers. So,
    what the heck am I doing wrong? Is there an easier way for me to
    change styles within a fixed position element?

    ul, li { margin-left: 0; paddng-left: 0; }
    Use real headers. H1, H2, H3, etcetera. What is the purpose of the
    position attribute in this situation anyway? Why not leave it out?
    Doesn't look like one to me.
    Use real headers.
    <div id="menu">
    <h2>Things I eat</h2>
    <li><a href="foo.html">Cheese</a></li>
    <li><a href="foo.html">Bread</a></li>
    <li><a href="foo.html">Meat</a></li>
    <h2>Things I hate about Usenet</h2>
    <li><a href="foo.html">Topposters</a></li>
    <li><a href="foo.html">Bad quoting</a></li>
    <li><a href="foo.html">Flamewars</a></li>

    #menu {
    position: fixed;
    top: 0; left: 0;
    width: 25%;

    #menu h2 {
    color: white;
    background-color: blue;

    #menu ul, #menu li {
    margin-left: 0;
    padding-left: 0;
