Browsers add margin and/or padding to lists to give them the look we are used to see. But they do it in different ways, so the easiest is to first remove all possible margins and padding and then add back whatever you may want.

CODE
ul,li   { margin: 0; padding:0 }


Or if you want to target only this list:

CODE
#mainnav, #mainnav li   { margin: 0; padding:0 }
