I have a little list and would like it to go right under the heading but there seems to be extra space. How should I code this so right after the title there is only a sinigle line break and the list begins?

<p>title</p>
<ul>  
   <li>item 1</li>
   <li>item 1</li>
</ul>

Add this to your markup:
<style type="text/css">
* {      margin: 0px; padding: 0px;}    
</style>
Also add <br /> where you what a break line.
