I'm new to CSS and am trying to remove the vertical blank space between a drop down menu. I know that I need to add     margin:0px; padding:0px;     to my code but don't know where or how it should look in the completed code. Here is the page displaying the desired result and what I have now.

Here is my page and attached is my style sheet. Could someone please show me how to change my code to make this work? thanks

There are a few methods,

Loading an external stylesheet can be done two ways. See code below.
Option 1:
 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>My Page</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="mystylesheet.css" media="all" />
</head>
 
Option 2:
 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>My Page</title>
<style type="text/css">@import("mystylesheet.css");</style>
</head>

#itemName        { ...your existing CSS here .... padding:0px; margin:0px; }
DIV                    { ...your existing CSS here .... padding:0px; margin:0px; }
DIV.menuh        { ...your existing CSS here .... padding:0px; margin:0px; }
A.link.class        { ...your existing CSS here .... padding:0px; margin:0px; }

It doesn't matter which CSS item you add it to, you just add it and you are done.  Whether classes, links, tags or element names, like DIV, just add it.
