overflow: hidden not working as I expect

I have a html page that displays a list of images generated by a server, but I don't want to display the bottom 2% of the image. My solution was to use overflow:hidden on the containing div for the image and then to give the image a 2% margin-top after setting it to display:inline-block. This worked great for a simple proof of concept page I built, but not so much for the actual page.

A link for the working page:
Working page

A link for the non working page:
non-working

My end goal is to get rid of the white line on the bottom of each image on the non-working page.

Try this:

.PreviewCell img {
    display: block;
    height: 100%;
    margin-top: 2%;
    position: relative;
    top: 2px;
    width: 100%;
}

That didn't work. I wound up using a negative bottom margin.

.PreviewCell img
{
	display:inline-block;
	width:100%;
	height:100%;
	margin-bottom:-4%;
}

Open in new window


And that worked where using a positive top margin didn't. I'm not sure why, in fact I find it rather confusing.
