Hello,

I'm pretty new to CSS and am having real trouble getting the text on a site I'm building looking right cross-browser.

In IE7, the text is too low, in Safari and Firefox, a bit too high. Whenever I get it looking right in one browser, it looks wrong in others...

The page, with all CSS in place, can be viewed at http://www.yada-yada.co.uk/slars/17_portfolio/17_1.html

I've spent hours fiddling with the line-height and margin-top.

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
Lars

The advice has already been given in the "stickey" topics in this forum, but you apparently haven't read these.

We do get rather tired of repeating this for every new poster, but please read those messages. Get your code, both html and CSS valid, and *then* if it still doesn't work right, post again.

Also, use a STRICT doctype, not transitional.
