Why are the menu tabs so far apart?


The top menu tabs are like 10px apart.  They should be 1px apart.

I need help figuring-out why the gap between them is so big.

Thank you.

Are you using padding somewhere that is effecting this area?

I looked high and low....no clue.

How might I find out?

I tried I think it was Firebug (?) or Fiddler (?) to look at the CSS for the table, and I see nothing applied as far as padding that would explain this.

I am using "Web Button Menu Maker":


It provides an interface to customize the buttons (.gifs) and a little javascript to handle the roll-over effects.  The rest is just pure HTML and whatever CSS I want to apply.

See my attached file.  Perhaps it will provide some clues as to why my menu is behaving so oddly.
When I open the file the buttond are not seperate.
Could be related to your other question, the white lines.
Try removing the link to # on the buttons and see if it changes.

Removing the "#" link did nothing.

But, in another question somebody suggested I remove style.css located in the /images folder.

This not only fixed the spacing problem, but the lines as well.

Always helps to have someone look at things.

After a while you get tunnel vision.

Please change your margin-right in http://test1.campuswebstore.com/App_Themes/UCONN/images/style.css

try by modifying
a img {
    margin: 10px 20px 10px 0;


a img {
    margin: 10px 0px 10px 0;
