h1 tag problem? why?

Hi,

Can anybody tell me how I stop the extra space my heading tags produce under
the text.
The space the tag is producing is throwing my layout out alot and I cant
figure how to remove it. If I change the line height ..the top of the text
is cut off...how do I do this?

Any advice is much appreciated

This should solve your problem:

h1 {
margin-bottom:0;
}

To remove any default whitespace use:

h1 {
padding:0;
margin:0;
}

Try <H1 style="-5px;"> (negativ value)
But I don't know for sure how it validates or works in all browsers.

margin-bottom:0;


I belive you must use a negative value to get it realy "tight", i.e
margin-bottom:-5px;

No, that is stupid, since you could pull the element below over the H1
element. You should only use negative margins to 'design' not to remove
whitespace.

This isn't the way to do it.

h1{
margin:0;
padding:0;
}

Is the way to go, as explained in other mails.

I don't say you are wrong, but at least it works fine for me, tested
with IE 6.xx and Netscape 7.xx
Don't know about Opera and other.

It depends on your definition of "works". A negative bottom margin
means that the elements will partly overprint each other, if the next
element's top margin is zero. What this means depends on the context.
Making text lines touch (or even overprint) is usually not a good idea.

But maybe you mean that the next element has a nonzero margin. Then
that's the issue you should consider. Negative margins are a somewhat
clumsy way of addressing that problem.
