    resolved [RESOLVED] IE / ul List / background-Image bullet vertical align problem

    Hi all,

    Anybody want to take a stab at this problem I am having? I have a list with bullet points styled with CSS that are not aligning properly vertically in IE 9. It seems that the background-image is getting cut off at the bottom in IE 9 browser, yet it displays correctly in Firefox 3 and up. Iím very new to CSS and alas, I have hit a wall with finding this specific fix. The page was developed in Dreamweaver CS5 and I have only tested this on the IE side via version 9. I am not sure if this problem exists in any earlier version of IE. I would be most appreciative if anyone could please take a look at my code and determine what I am doing wrong and or explain what I may be missing.

    Best Regards,

    May bot correct problem, but some errors:



    All minor errors. I see you have a CSS for IE 7. You might want to set one for IE 9 as IE does not calculate dimensions correctly to this day.

    Thanks Ron for the code check. I fixed the minor problems you had found, but these corrections unfortunately did not to fix my original problem. Thank you again though for taking a look under the hood for me.

    Wink Fixed it:)

    I fixed this problem. My block text size had been 12px , so I made my sprite image 12px as well thinking this would properly align both the bullet image to the text. What I missed was that the font size at 12px is actually 14px in height which in turn would cause to have a two px difference in my spacing.
    So, what I thought had been a codding issue was in reality a image sprite to text spacing issue with regards to height.
