Hi there,
Can anyone help me fix a hairline gap in this page here
http://lisablue.com.au/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=83&Itemid=61

I can't see it in FF or Safari, but others insist they can see a gap between the image and the end of the page....

Can someone please help me fix this?

I can't see/find the issue either between several browsers inc Opera, FF, IE.

*update* I've managed to emulate the issue in Firefox @ 1680 x 1050 res if this helps you

Do you mean between the rotating banner and the bottom of the containing box? if so i dont see it.

Tested on IE7: LISA BLUE and PUBLIC RELATIONS menu is on left not right side.
(remove margin-left from topmodules in template_ie7)

Tested on IE9: Top menu items dont display, probs something to do with cufon.
(Find similar font on http://www.google.com/webfonts and use there much simpler font replacement)

I see the hairline in Firefox 17.0.1 on MacOS X 10.6.8. I can get rid of it by adding a margin-bottom: -1px to your "fadeshow1" div. However, if it were me and I could control all the content, I would remove the two <br> tags at the top of that table cell and another at the bottom and eliminate all the negative margins to offset those <br> tags. The <br> tags are inheriting a font size of 12px and a line height of 135%. But they could easily inherit a different font size and line height in a different browser.

I noticed that you are using tables in that particular area within your <div>'s. I have had similar alignment issues when using tables. I would suggest that you replace your tables with <div>'s or <span>'s and specify the positions. You get much better control over page elements with these HTML tags. Technically, tables should not be used as an alignment tool, but rather as a container for tabular data.

In Chrome, the bottom of the image, slightly over laps the bottom line.
