Annoying space caused by a toggle using MooTools Fx.Slide?

Hi Guys

I would have posted this question on the MooTools forum but it's been down today :(

I have been using Joomla! 1.5.2 which has MooTools 1.11 built in. I have created a slide effect on several divs on this page: http://www.landau-forte.org.uk/post16/calendar (it's a work in progress so appologies if its not up when you look)

As you can see, if you click on the Term headings (Term 1, for example) the events slide up and hide. The problem I have seems to only happen in IE7 (I don't have IE6 to test it in). When you toggle the term to close the events they slide up but a space appears between the term title and the container footer. It's only small and doesn't show up in FireFox 3.

Does anyone know what is causing this or how to fix it? If you can't see what I am on about then let me know :)

Thanks for your help,
James

	padding-left: 10px;
	float: left;
}
 
.catTitle, .catDates {
	line-height: 33px;
	height: 30px;
	text-align: left;
	font-weight: bold;

Inside style.css make modification for following classes; specify float:left; for all classes.

.catTitle, .catDates (line 16)

{

overflow-x: hidden;

overflow-y: hidden;

line-height: 33px;

height: 30px;

float:left;

width:300px;

text-align: left;

background-color: #ffffff;

background-image: none;

background-repeat: repeat;

background-attachment: scroll;

background-position: 0% 0%;

}

.catFooterLeft, .catFooterRight (line 34)

{

height: 10px;

width:300px;

float:left;

margin-bottom: 10px;

}

seems that the DIV that you "slide" must be "float:left"

for me, that worked! ;)
