Hi,

It's a very simple text based menu, but when a menu item is active, I want to display a little triangle under the text.

I have the following CSS, which works perfectly fine in IE but fails in Firefox. In firefox, the image leaves about 5px at the bottom as well.

Pleeeeeeease Help!


#navlist
{
	border: 0;
	margin: 0;
	padding: 0;
	list-style-type: none;
}
 
#navlist li
{
	width: 90px;
	height: 20px;
	font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
	font-size: 12px;
	text-align: center;		
	text-decoration:none;
	display: block;
	float:left;
 	color: #999999;
	
	padding-top: 5px;
        /* For Testing ONLY */
	background-color:#0033FF;
}
 
#navlist a:link, #navlist a:visited
{
	color: #999999;
	text-decoration: none;
}
 
#navlist a:hover
{
	color: #99CCFF;
	text-decoration: none;
}
 
body#home a#homeActive,
body#products a#prodActive,
body#sizing a#sizeActive,
body#myAccount a#accActive,
body#about a#aboutActive,
body#contact a#contActive
{
	text-decoration: none;
	background-image:url(images/triangle.jpg);
	background-position:bottom;
	background-repeat:no-repeat;
	height: 20px;
 
}

As always, if the page renders differently in Firefox and IE, Firefox is correct...

If you don't put display:block on the links, they are inline elements. Inline elements doesn't have a specific size, so setting a height on them has no effect.

Except in IE, which applies the height to them anyway...

You have display:block on the li element, but not on the a element. Unless you have more css somewhere else...
