Hi there

Please have a look at this list:

http://www.mrlinsurance.co.uk/test.html

It displays exactly how I want it to in Firefox, Opera and Safari. However it doesnt display correctly in IE6. The spaces between the lines is too great and there is no space after each list.

Any ideas

List dispays fine in Firefox but wong in IE...?

Lists are subject to IE's white space bug. Try reformatting the list like this;

<ul>
  <li><a href="">Introduction</a></li><li>
  <a href="">Cover</a></li><li>
  <a href="">Costs</a></li><li>
  <a href="">Quote / Buy </a></li></ul>

cheers,

gary

Youre a star!! Thanks very much.

I should have picked up on this when I read "Designing with Web Standards" by Jeffrey Zeldman. The book has a couple of pages dedicated to this bug.

I can't believe Microsoft has left this bug in for so long.

Thanks again.
