&lt;ul&gt; can be sucha b*tch sometimes.

This looks like a known IE bug. Try putting a bottom border
on the LI's. The borders can be white and just 1px but they
must be there to defeat the bug. HTH

hi wolfy,
i guess you fixed it .. just checked on IE6 and everything looks ok
one question: where did you get the small 'css' and 'xtml' at the bottom of your site, i saw the icon given on the w3.org validator is much bigger ..
thank
vito

Curious.

I'm a little late in viewing this post, so I'm not sure of the exact problem. Big John, was it the empty space that appears in IE browsers on vertically aligned LI's? The only way I found to work around it was to remove ALL white space from the first <UL> to closing </UL>. E.g., remove tabs, line breaks, spaces, etc. I tried your method of adding a 1px border to the base, but it isn't working. I apologize if this is of the current topic/problem, but I am curious.[/b]

No, this is not a whitespace bug, altho IE has a shiza-load
of those.

When using lists, the first thing to do is zero ALL
margins and padding on both the list and the list items.

Only then will the browsers even come close to agreeing.
After that those properties can be added back in where needed.
