Why is there a gap in this string?

Head out to http://www.countryshowdown.com and you'll see a scrolling text marquee at the top. It works great but I want to tighten things up a bit so there's no gap between the beginning and the end.

How?

Source code is available just by looking at the site...

The gap seems to be between iemarquee and iemarquee2: you can try to play with margin or to set the float attribute to left for these elements. If you try this second solution, remember to add immediately after the two iemarquee a new div <div style='float: clear'></div to reset the natural flow of the elements.

are you using <br> inside your marquee statement?

Have you tried applying one (or both) of these

letter-spacing:-1px
word-spacing:-1px;

 on td.marquee?

I see a scrolling text marquee but it is not at the top.  It appears to be below a banner that is perhaps 200 - 400 PX high.  Is that the marquee you want us to look at?

In the iemarquee2 section I put, "margin-left:0;" and BAM, problem solved!

Thanks!

Glad to help you. Let me do an 'errata corrige': to clear the previous float statement and return to the normal document flow you have to set the clear property to both

<div style="clear: both"></div>

Cheers
