    padding issue - not sure?

    Hello

    I have a page with a simple logo at the top. Under that is the title of the site (also an image). Under that there is a further image.

    I am having difficulty bringing the bottom two images closer together and thought it must be something to do with padding, but no matter how much I mess about with padding, it just won't do what I want it to do!

    Here is the code in my HTML:

    Code:
    <div id="container">
    	
    		<div id="logo"><h1>winXP</h1></div>
    		<div class="nav"><a href="http://www.halls.mmu.ac.uk">home</a></div>
    				
    		
    		<h2 class="imagemenu">ICTS</h2>
    		<p class="version"></p>
    		<p class="description"></p>
    		
    		
    		<h3 class="example">example</h3>
    		<div id="example">
    			<div id="imageMenu">
    			<ul>
    				<li class="landscapes"><a href="page1.html" onclick="Show('page1');return false">Landscapes</a></li>
    				<li class="people"><a href="page2.html" onclick="Show('page2');return false">People</a></li>
    				<li class="nature"><a href="page3.html" onclick="Show('page3');return false">Nature</a></li>
    				<li class="urban"><a href="page4.html" onclick="Show('page4');return false">Urban</a></li>
    				<li class="abstract"><a href="page5.html" onclick="Show('page5');return false">Abstract</a></li>
    			</ul>
    			</div>
    and here is the CSS:

    Code:
    html, body, div, span, object, iframe,h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, p, blockquote, pre,a, abbr, acronym, address, 
    code,del, dfn, em, img, q, dl, dt, dd, ol, ul, li,fieldset, form, label, legend,
    table, caption, tbody, tfoot, 
    thead, tr, th, td
    
     {margin: 0;

    body { line-height: 1.5;
    background: #fff;
    margin:1.5em 0; } /* Tables still need 'cellspacing="0"' in the markup. */
    
    
    table { border-collapse: separate; border-spacing: 0; }
    
    caption, th, td {
    
    text-align: left; font-weight:400; }
    
    /* Remove possible quote marks (") from <q>, <blockquote>. */

    A pointer in the right direction would be great.

    Thanks.

    Try :
    font-size:0; line-height:0

    if that is possible in your situation.
    I didn't look carefully at your code

    Hello Beedie

    thanks for your post.

    That didn't really do anything to pull the two bottom images together.

    I think the problem lies in the h2 and h3 class, but as I say when I have messed about with those, nothing, so it must lie elsewhere. In the 'container' maybe?

    Cheers
