Hi, I just started a little css layout and I have a probleme with it.
The web site is there: ph.mongeau.googlepages.com/index.html
my probleme is that when I add a h1 title, it adds paddind on top and bottom eaven if i say padding: 0; in my css code.

here's my css:
@import url();

body {
font-family: Helvetica, Verdana, sans-serif;
font-size: 90%;
line-height: 1.6em;
text-align: left;
margin: 0;
margin-left: auto;
margin-right: auto;
padding: 0px;
background: #656565 url(background.jpg);
color: rgb(0, 0, 0);
}
#header{
background: #FF9900;
margin: 0 auto;
width: 100%;
height: 100px;
}
#division{
height:10px;
width:100%;
}
#wrapper{
width: 95%;
margin: 0 auto;
text-align: left;
}

#index{
background: #0058D6;
}
#page1{
background: #996633;
}
#page2{
background: #FF0000;
}
#page3{
background: #309600;
}

a, a:link, a:visited {
text-decoration: none;
}

a:hover {
text-decoration: underline;
}

img {
border: 0;
}

h1 {
font-size: 150%;
font-weight: bold;
text-align: center;
}

and here's my html:

You header is made up of

Your header is made up of three parts. View the attached image.

Part one is the actual font face. In the image, the gray area is what the font occupies. Notice that the descenders drop below the nominal face area, and the ascenders don't quite reach the top. This is dependent on design. The nominal font size is the measure from the top of the ascender to the bottom of the descender. My demo is a nominal 100px font-size. Actual measurement is 95px for this font.

You specified a line-height of 1.6em. On this 100px font, that means it's 160px, with half above and half below the font's middle. That leaves 30px above and below the font itself. I've colored it pink.

The <h1> has a default margin of .67em, top and bottom. That's the 67px at top and bottom that I colored yellow.

There is no default padding on <h1>. Reset the margin(Drunk or adjust the line-height (the usual default is 1.2).

cheers,

gary

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.
