Sorry, yet another NS7/IE6 question...

Hi all,

I'd be really grateful for some help here. I'm trying to work out how to
overcome the differences I see between IE6 and NS7 on the menu on this page:

www.nowpc.co.uk

(This is a redesign of a very old site. I've worked with CSS/XHTML for a
long
time now, but I'm trying some new layout stuff with this site - at least new
for me. Please understand that the
site is very much in construction, and the issue I'm struggling with is
specific to the top menu and how it displays. Validation and accessibility
are far from forgotten, but I'm working on layout and content right now.)

The menu looks the way I intend in IE6, but there's this maddening overlap
at
the top in NS7. I've mucked with margins and paddings until I really am
going to explode, and damn it I just don't get it. I've tried walking away
and coming back. I've tried coffee, coke, books and a thousand websites. I
seem to have a very nasty mental block, and I'd really appreciate some help!

Really, thanks in advance,
Neil

Try it with a DocType Declaration. Specifically this one:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

Blimey, thanks Gus. Can't believe it didn't occur to me... another DOH! I
knew it would be simple, but my head was a shed. Many thanks again - now I
can get on!
