Would you please look at http://www.fernbuck.com/pages/template.txt

I am using a template and the code I sent you was lines 11-20.

Am I going to have to go through all the code and remove all the margins and paddings?

Where exactly do I place the ul,li{margin:0;padding:0}

Forgive me I'm a rookie at this.

Ok great but now the first letter of the text is overlapping with the bullet image.  How do I create distance between the bullet and the text?  "And that should be it"

Replacing {margin:0;padding:0px;} with

margin-top: 0pt;

margin-right: 0pt;

margin-bottom: 0pt;

margin-left: -5pt;

padding-top: 0px;

padding-right: 0px;

padding-bottom: 0px;

padding-left: 15px;

Gave me exactly what I wanted.
