Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and CSS. I basically learned some of it to build this new website for work, but I have a problem. In IE, no white space appears between the menu buttons and the top graphic that says "Curran Cooney Penny Insurance Agency." In Firefox 3 (have not checked with 2), a white space does appear and I cannot for the life of my figure out why. I know my code must be terribly dirty (this is the first website I've built), so I'm not sure what I have to post here. Can anyone help?

http://www.ccpinsurance.com/redesign

*Note- everything I've worked on is in the '/redesign' folder. The root address is the old website that will be replaced once I'm finished*

Thanks very much guys

Wow, just a few characters

Wow, just a few characters of text which have been driving me crazy. Thanks a lot, David! And how do I go about validating the CSS? I'm completely new to this. Is there a program that checks the code?
