    Assistance creating rollover blocks!

    Hello everyone, I have a fairly basic CSS question to ask, but since I'm new to CSS, I'm a bit stumped. If you check out my blog (http://goblinsatemyblog.com), on the sidebar you'll see that the menu rollovers are green. However, some of the menu blocks drop the sidebar under the menu item a few pixels when you roll over them. If you roll over anything under "cool links", for example, you'll see what I mean. How can I correct that? The CSS is in two files, pasted below. Sorry in advance for all the code; I'm not sure what you would need to see, so I pasted it all (almost). Thanks!

    Code:
    /*---:[ to change the colors of the header and footer... ]:---*/
    
    .custom #header { background: url('images/header.png') no-repeat; height: 445px; width: 100%; text-align: center; margin: 0; }
    
    .custom #footer { background: url('images/footer.png') no-repeat; height: 360px; width: 100%; text-align: center; margin: 0; }
    
    /* .custom #footer { background: url('custom/footer.png') no-repeat; margin-top: 20px; } */
    
    /* .custom #footer { background: #009933; border-top-color: #009933; color: #fff; margin-top: 20px; } */
