12 New Member
For some reason there is a gap in between some of my <divs>. It doesn't happen at the top to my header and navbar but once I go into my body it starts and I can't figure out why. any help would be greatly appreciated. Heres the link to the page : http://naturalfoodrepo rts.com/chiaseedreport. php

and heres all the code on that page:

Most elements have a default margin applied to them. I'm not on my dev computer to check but applying 'margin:0' to the paragraphs, divs will probably solve that.

my margins are auto for left and right and when i set the top to 0 nothing happens it still stays the same; with a gap. :(

You have margin set to zero on the divs but it's the p element that has margins that are pushing up against the other divs.

i just a new css rule for "p" making it have a margin 0 for all. that should fix the problem for good right?
Sep 23 '10 #6
7,435 Recognized Expert Expert
Yes. Some people set margins on everything to zero and then reset them to what they want. Google for "CSS Reset". The problem is, if they are going to set it to something else anyway, why are they setting it to zero? That's why many don't think it's a good idea.

yea i just set all "p" to zero margin because I have margins left and right on auto for a lot of my divs so that wouldn't really work for me. but, i did solve this little problem thanks to you!!

I really appreciate you taking the time to reply to my thread. Hopefully one day I can help people too like how you helped me. Thanks again!

Can anyone help me with this - it may be obvious, but I just can't see it. I'm working with PC and WinME. In IE6, the two divs inside the wrapping div have no space between them, which is how I want it to be, but in NN6.2 and Opera7.11 there's a gap between them. I've tried all the fixes I can think of, but can't get it to work. Any help would be much appreciated. Pared-down example: http://www.tonyturton.com/test/styletest.html...

Hello I have 5 divs, and initially the lower 4 are hidden. I would like everything beneath the 5th div to appear flush against the first visible div.
