Hi guys,

Building just my second web page with CSS, still getting to grips with it (old school table designer). Have been pulling my hair out last few days trying to figure this out and would really appreciate some help. I do like to try and work these things out for myself but this just ain't happening.

I have a 'left' div in which my menu sits. I need to indent it by 15 pixels to sit with the design. Problem is IE6 seems to double the padding I put in.

You can see what I mean at:

and

in this case the padding is 8 so it looks fine in IE6 but not Firefox. Any idea what I'm doing wrong??

Many thanks in advance

I take it you're actually

I take it you're actually referring to margin, not padding? And why are you floating those anchors? Removing the floats will probably resolve the problem.

Tyssen, I can't thank you

Tyssen, I can't thank you enough! Float gone, problem gone. to be honest I got menu from cssplay.co.uk, I assume those floats were in there when I copy pasted, but now you mention it I see they are not needed. Problem fixed! 2 days of stress wiped out. Thanks bud.
