I've been staring at this for a while in Mozilla / using Firebug to try and find some sort of margin or padding value to explain the gap, and I just can't find what is wrong.  Another pair of eyes would be nice to have on this.

Website is here:

http://utenn.dev.campuswebstore.mobi/booksearch.aspx

it does it here as well:

http://utenn.dev.campuswebstore.mobi

but the gap is not as tall.  Actually, I just checked and the gap is not there in Mozilla...your mileage may vary.

Not sure why you have <script></script> tags all over the place - in the <head> and <body> sections?

Your ID attributes are unusual, too, not what I would call "concise"...

You might try putting

* { margin:0; padding:0; }

in your CSS file

On http://utenn.dev.campuswebstore.mobi/booksearch.aspx, I see you are experiencing this problem because of the way you have set up the DOM.  You should try to use position: absolute and position: relative only if absolutely necessary.  As it is right now, without radical changes in the DOM, I would recommend changing top to -15px on the div#side_menu_bg style found on line 507 of the utenn.css file (a bandaid measure I admit, but the least work of all the solutions possible).

I cannot see any problem with the http://utenn.dev.campuswebstore.mobi/ page.

It was:

#content h3 { /* Use this class for a in-page menu header */
    font-size: 14px;
    line-height: 15px;
    margin: 15px 10px 7.72px;
    color: #1C3F6B;
    font-family: "trebuchet MS", Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-weight: lighter;
}

Open in new window



Changed:

   margin: 15px 10px 7.72px;
 

to this:

   margin: 0px 10px 7.72px;
 


and that seemed to do it.



Rebuttal?  :P

You changed the TOP margin from 15px to 0 - seems like that was a good idea ;-)

Oh, and no worries - glad to help.
