CSS UL LI Issue

Can someone help me fix a CSS issue I have with my UL/LI. I have attached a couple screenshots showing the issue and current styles.  Notice the  blue box outlining "Product" button.  It shows up when I click on one of the buttons.  I have javascript on the page that displays a drop down menu when I hover over the buttons.  The browser is recognizing the extra spacing above and below, so when I hover in the extra spacing the drop down menu shows up.  I only want the hover over functionality to work when I roll over the buttons.  

Thanks for any help given...

try giving your global_nav div the height of the graphics you are using as your links.  It's hard to tell for sure without you posting your code.  Could you post the html and css for this whole section?

reduce the padding bottom in most of the styles and you would be good to go

aye, the padding bottom is the only thing I can see.  Do you have a link to your web site?  I'm not getting any adverse affects even with the padding, but I don't have the images to put in so not sure how they size up...
