Drop down menu

I have a simple drop down menu and an image for the go button.  For some reasons, the row ends up higher than what it should be and the button is higher than the menu itself.  I even tried setting the height of the <tr> but didn't work.  The form works fine but the alignment doesn't. Here is a sample code for it..

<form name="jump">
<script>
function jumpMenu(){location=document.jump.menu.options[document.jump.menu.selectedIndex].value;
}
</script>
<select name="menu">
<option value="http://www.toronto.edu/" selected>UofT</option>
<option value="http://www.ryerson.edu/">URyerson</option>
<option value="http://www.york.edu">YorkU</option>
</select>
<a href="Javascript:jumpMenu()"><IMG SRC="go.gif" border=0 width="22" height="22"></a>
</form>

set the align in the image tag:

<a href="#" onClick="jumpMenu(); return false;"><IMG SRC="go.gif" border="0" width="22" height="22" align="top"></a>


... or you might try align="bottom" , I don't remember which one

you most likely need to set alignment on the image...

check here for the proper values for that attribute, and try a few until it works.

sorry, knight, your comment wasn't there when i started posting.


gudoos, make sure you check what the alignment looks like in any browser you need it to work in.  while one value might look ok in one browser, might not look good in another.  make sure to try them all...sometimes things like "baseline" or "textop" or "absmiddle" work well as well.

place a <table> there to format the form display.

<form name="jump">

You may also want to try resizing your image to match the line height...

try 10 or 12 pixels high for your image height
