Can this Height or Top/Bottom "margin" issue be fixed with CSS?

Hello Experts,

Please look at this page:


Look at the right column with the header "Popular VideoTags".   Note that the there is a large top and bottom margin above and below the tags.  

There appear to be a number of css "controls" on this right column, and I am hoping that there is a CSS fix that will reduce the large top and bottom margins.

Any suggestions?

The problem seems to be the static height you have on your flash object

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://www.rowbyville.com/modules/mod_hwd_vs_sql_tags/tagcloud.swf" width="100%" height="375">

Open in new window

Try taking that down a bit and see if that helps

It isn't CSS - it is the embed of your flash file.

Your embed starts with:

<object height="350"

change it to something like

<object height="150"

This doesn't effect the size of the text but will lower the height of the flash file and thus reducing the empty space.
