how to "fix" elements

I have a <ul> with <li> and <a> in those <li>

When I -hover- on -li a- I want to transform the text of -a- to uppercase, this causes the elements on the right of the li to slide forward because of the bigger size.
Is there a way to fix the element when I hover on it so the elements nearby won't be affected? The only thing I thought is to use absolute rule for every li but this would be impossible because this menu is generated dynamically and changes every time.

As you make the text bigger, also change the padding and/or margin to a smaller value to compensate?

the problem with that is that the margin is not the same for every element

Well you could always set all the li's to have the same fixed width. Wide enough to where the longest a text, when hovered, doesn't effect the rest of the content.
