CSS issue in joomla, how to set smaller spacing between line

I am using a horizontal menu to the left

Probem is that size of module is constant.
I need the distances between each of the top level menu links to be smaller.
Reason beeing that if not the last menu point falls outside when you hold mouse over.
I am using firebug, but not able to find the CSS settings for  the distance between the top level menu. If I can reduse the spacing with 25% It will all fit inside the menu windows
Who is Participating?
ul.art-vmenu a {
    cursor: pointer;
    display: block;
    height: 30px;

That "height: 30px;" reference is what's giving all the white space under the parent navigation items.  Reduce it to 24px, or ideally remove the height declaration all together, and use line-height (in ems) instead, and you'll get the desired effect.

That said, the most ideal situation is to make your left nav area flexible, if someone can't see the screen and uses CTRL-Scroll (on their mouse) to make the text bigger, your menu will get really messed up visually and will become unusable.  Something to think about.
