    Spacing in front of lists.

    This works in IE but not in firefox.

    Code:
    dl, dt, dd, ul, li {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    color: #959595;
    list-style-type: none;
    list-style-image: none;
    }
    When you hover the menu you can see that the submenu have a spacing in firefox, but not in IE.

    It's for the css menu I'm trying to build.
    You can see it at http://dreamtech.mine.nu/test/
    stylesheet : /test/style.css

    I'm still new to all this and I would really appriciate some help.

    I didn't look too deeply into this, but I am assuming that Firefox's behaviour is correctly showing what you don't want, and IE is incorrectly showing you wht you DO want.

    To get the drop-down to 'expand' to fill the available space, something like:

    #smenu ul li a {display:block;....}

    might do it. It causes the Selector ("#smenu ul li a") to be 'shrink wrapped'. This takes up all available space, -like it does in IE.

    But like I said, -I just glanced at your code and did not try it..
    I build for: Firefox and tweak for IE

    Thanks for your fast reply.
    I found the problem though, and it was my own stupidity.

    the
    Code:
    <-- menu -->
    part in the css file, ****ed up the following code
    Code:
    dl, dt, dd, ul, li {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    color: #959595;
    list-style-type: none;
    list-style-image: none;
    }
    But thanks again for your fast reply.

    CSS comments are /* like C */.
