I've created a drop down menu from a template using CSS. I've gotten it almost perfect but am having trouble getting rid of the vertical space between my images. I would like the images in the list to line up flush with each other, not displaying the blue outline of the box behind them. Here is a page with the menu I have on the right and a jpg of what I want it to look like on the left.

I've attached the style sheet I'm using and here is the code for my page. Thanks for any help.

<!-- Begin Grab This - You'll need this external CSS file and the IE Statement below -->
<style type="text/css">@import url("menuh.css");</style>
<!--[if lt IE 7]>
<style type="text/css" media="screen">
#menuh{float:none;}
body{behavior:url(csshover.htc); font-size:100%;}
#menuh ul li{float:left; width: 100%;}
#menuh a{height:0%;font:bold 0.7em/1.4em arial, sans-serif;}
</style>
<![endif]-->
<!-- End Grab This -->

</head>

<body>

                <table width="667" border="1">

                <td><img src="images/example.jpg"></td>
                <td>

UL, LI  {margin:0px; padding:0px; }
IMG  { margin:0px; padding:0px; border:0px }

do the same for DIV if that is causing some of it.

Also, If you would like to get rid of the blue outlines, removing the background: #0105A7; on the a tags should work.
