View Full Version : Unexpected whitespace appearing

01-11-2008, 05:35 PM
Please see my test page here: http://shawnessy.ca/test.html

The top of my CSS box is "floating" above the rest of the box. It seems to only happen when I include a table in the content section (i.e. "spiffyfg").

Can someone explain to me why I'm getting that whitespace, and how to fix it?!

Hello Quimbly, to show you why, try this once:

.my_header1 {
color: #FFFFFF;
font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', 'Lucida Grande', Verdana, Arial, Sans-Serif;
font-weight: bold;
font-size: 20px;
text-align: center;
margin: 0;
It's the default margin on p that is causing your gap.

You should really have a doctype, even when testing.

Thanks, guys!

What's a doctype?
