Is there a way I can display a menu in my theme that isn't formatted in a list? i just want to display the <a> tags without the <li> tags.

is this possible?

theme file:

<?php wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'navigation' ) ); ?>


function register_my_menus() {
    register_nav_menus(array('navigation' => __( 'Main Nav' )));

add_action( 'init', 'register_my_menus' );

Edit: see my answer below, found on Stack Overflow
