mysterious gap in a UL in MSIE

When rendered in IE 6, the group of 4 light-blue links
http://maba.org/new/homeproducts/ has a gap between SEMINARS and SHOW
ACTIVITIES.

Gecko does not render it this way. Can anyone shed some light on this,
and perhaps a possible workaround?

Thanks,
Jordan

More serious is that Exihibitors by XXXXXX and Seminars ar overlapping.
In Opera 7.5
Gecko does not render it this way. Can anyone shed some light on this,
and perhaps a possible workaround?


Perhaps you should try to hunt it down by removing all style rules that
don't have effect. When you find what is the problem, make minimazed test
case and ask, if you don't already understand what is the problem.

I've encountered that problem before myself. I think the trick was to
remove any whitespace in the UL markup.

For example, instead of this:

<ul>
<li><a class='public' href="" id="">Home</a></li>
<li><a class='public' href="" id="">Events</a></li>
</ul>

Try this:

<ul><li><a class='public' href="" id="">Home</a></li><li><a
class='public' href="" id="">Events</a></li></ul>

When I'm designing, I find it best to have both browsers side-by-side so
that I can squash any bugs immediately instead of discovering them
later on. I found one tool called MozIE:
http://www.cssvault.com/tools/mozie.php which lets you check what your
work looks like in Internet Explorer (5,5.5,6) and Mozilla at the same time.
