Bizarre HTML/CSS behaviour

This problem appears across all browsers

Third level left hand side navigation: line-height or margin top/bottom is too big when a certain group of items are clicked.

NOT OK:

OK:
http://ndlrnstage.esa.edu.au/for_jurisdictions/resource_development_process/digital_resources/quality_assurance.html

The styling in the 'NOT OK' above should look the same as the 'OK' above.

It's definitely referencing the same css.

if you click the first level nav item above it, http://ndlrnstage.esa.edu.au/for_jurisdictions/collaborative_networks/the_le@rning_federation_consultative_committee/consultative_committee.html

it shows the correct styling...

Your "not OK" page has fifteen (15) links to external stylesheets. I'd say that somebody, somewhere is stepping on someone else's toes.

Personally, I'd remove all the links except the navigation link and see how that works. Then I'd add in another CSS link until I find the one that breaks the navigation.

@Badots: good tip.

I tried that. I deleted all the children items under 'Sample curriculum content' pasted the children elements from 'Access information' and the styling worked fine!

I just wanted to know your thinking - it really doesn't matter.

You took my advice, and it led you to a solution.

Perhaps think twice next time, and if you really feel the effort wasn't worth it, talk to the expert. Figure out how to make things right.

After all, we don't get paid - we only get the odd T-shirt. Your praise is why we're here ;-)
