Hello Ali,
To which div tag should it add this property? I added it to the animation div and the nav (menu) div had already had it. BTW. it still doesn't work :-(
Amazing i that the same application works on my local host, but not on the production server ...

.nav
{width: auto; height:23px; background-color: #c0c0c0; border: 1px solid #828282; padding:0; margin:0;}
.animation
{width: inherit; height:278px; background-color:Black; z-index: -10;padding:0; margin:0;}
This is the current status!

You've run into collapsing margins. IE5-7 often handle those incorrectly. The simplest fix would be to give ".animation" "padding: 1px 0".

Units are only required for non-zero values.
