Hi NeoNizer,
You must be playing with it now as I reloaded the page and the gap halved.
Let us know if you need any more help.

Sorry about that Smile

off course i try what i can to fix it myself Smile
my problem is, that i have to fix this "gap" with relative positioning, rather then in the code... this gap also appears in a valid table, and is thus weird...

feel free to look at the code and main.css, they shouldn't be faulty as far as i know, but i've always coded on my own, never before with help of others.
scroll=no and the style of body.overflow = hidden are hacks cuz i'm making almost form fitting designs for 800x600, after that 1024 should be a lot easier.

they look well now in both FF and IE, except for the gap in FF betwen copy right and poll thingie...

any tips on how to code cleaner appreciated, i am off course still learning Smile especially crossbrowser coding is new to me, i've used only IE before but now have been adjusting to FF too... had some trouble.. :/

thanks in advance(i'm leaving it alone for an horu or two, but most changes will be content and the auto-closing of the menu, that;s all

The best tip i have is to stop coding for IE, when you are creating a site do the main testing in firefox as this gets things right, when you have finished load it up in IE and then use some hacks to get around the problems,

a good hack to choose between IE and the standards compliant browsers is to use the html>body and the your id or class for example

#maincontent {
margin-left:10px;
}
html>body div#maincontent {
margin-left:5px;
}

Ie explorer doesn't understand html>body so it takes the first one into account, all other browsers however can so they read the second one and overwrite the first rule.

This is very useful for correcting IE6 box model problems.

Hope that helps
