    Question IE6/IE7 issue (ul link smooshing)

    Hello: I'm building my first HTML/CSS site for a client. In firefox, IE8, Chrome, Safari, and Opera the site looks fine. In IE6 and IE7 the ul links in my header div are smooshed. I messed with line-height, and margin-bottom and they either stay smooshed or disappear all together. I'm sure there is a simple solution; however, using a mac and not having easy access to IE6 and IE7 makes it a *****. HELP!!!!

    The css coding is as follows:

    #header ul#nav {
    float: right;
    font-size: 1.8em;
    position: relative;
    margin-top: 195px;
    }

    #nav li {
    display: inline;
    padding-right: 57px;
    }

    Code:
    body {
    line-height: 1px;
    font-size: 62.5%; /*for using em values*/
    font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
    }
    Change it to a bigger value,say line-height: 1.5;(unit is not necessary)

    Thank you. I thought I tried that, but on second try it worked.

    Do you know why in IE6/7 the font size/position on the copyright text is off? It looks fine in Firefox, Safari, Chrome, IE8, and Opera.
