I was having a problem styling a list for firefox 2. I finally solved it by replacing:

#search_results ul {


ul#search_results {

Is one more reliable than the other?

They mean different things.

First, is an unordered list inside some parent element, where that parent element has an ID of search_results.

Second, is an unordered list that itself has an ID of search_results, directly attached to it.
