IE7 and images spacing

Posted on 2007-12-05

This is probably a really stupid question,  but im having total brain freeze and cant figure this one out.  Basically I have three images that are slices of the same image in a wrapper div that are the width of the wrapper.

For some reason in IE7 the images appear with a 3px bottom margin, ive already tiried setting the border to 0, and collapsing the border with no success.  in firefox the images appear one after another as they should.

Any suggestions, welcome

Just a guess - try

#wrapper img{ display:block; }
#wrapper img{ vertical-align:bottom; }

Just to explain the problem: the images (inline elements in strict mode) will "float" on the font base line instead of the bottom line...
