Need help! ie7 + 6

ed
Hi,

I've been looking at this for so long, I can't begin to see my error.

http://www.gbyo.com/testNew/myncbi/index.shtml

In firefox, the menu, mainnav and subnav on the left hand side looks
as I
desire. In IE7, the menu has some really weird gaps above the
subnavs
(as well as the "BLAST" top nav item) that I can not for the life of
me
figure out. In IE6, the menu has the same bunch of gaps, with an
additional gap between each element. I'm mostly looking for an
answer
to the IE7 gaps, but would love any help with the IE6 ones as well.

Where it is suggested:

<!--[if lt IE 8]>
<style type="text/css">
li a {display:inline-block;}
li a {display:block;}
</style>
<![endif]-->

I assume the point of 'over-ruling' li a is because some of the
IE browsers recognise or don't recognise one or the other of
block or inline-block for display and one or other does the trick
needed.

Thanks Bergamot and dorayme, that was a big help.

I have corrected for that... but with my hidden menu, I am still
getting a blank space, despite applying the same rule. Do you have
any ideas on that?

Different browsers have different default css settings, sometimes even
different between versions.

I think the effect you are seeing is the top margin on the H2 & H1.
