in between the menu options with the text at the middle of the bar. I tried vertical-align but it didn't work for me.

Please help me out

Try this:

<div style="margin: 0 auto; padding-left:30px">
	  <a href="#!/page_About" style="text-decoration:none"><strong>About</a>
<img src="images/headerbars.gif " >
	<a href="#!/page_Portfolio" style="text-decoration:none"><strong>Portfolio</strong></a>	
<img src="images/headerbars.gif " >
	<a href="#!/page_Services" style="text-decoration:none"><strong>My Services</strong></a>
<img src="images/headerbars.gif " >
	<a href="#!/page_Reviews" style="text-decoration:none"><strong>Reviews</strong></a>	
<img src="images/headerbars.gif " >
	<a href="#!/page_Contact" style="text-decoration:none"><strong>Contact</strong></a>
</div>

Wow!... 31 errors in validation?  Some of them serious and affecting rendering.  What Dave posted will have a better chance of working if you start from error free code.  As it stands the the page is wonky and unreliable.  You need to fix the code.

@DaveBaldwin - thanks but they just ended up clustered together on the portfolio link. I need them to be spaced between each menu option.

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

I was able to get it down to 7 errors - and those are for the contact form and the google map code. It did throw off a bunch of alignment I had though.

If they were "clustered together on the portfolio link", then something else is going on.  HTML simply doesn't work that way.

Ok I fixed the alignment and made the changes that DaveBaldwin suggested but it still is clustered. I left the results saved so you can see what I am talking about.

Any idea of what could be going on? I am using the following css for the menu and I think maybe it is effecting it somehow.

.topmenu a{ 
color:#ffffff;
position:relative;
float: left;
left:30%;
 margin: 15px;
-webkit-transition: margin 1.5s ease-out;
 -moz-transition: margin 1.5s ease-out;
 -o-transition: margin 1.5s ease-out;

} 
.topmenu a:hover { margin-top: 2px; color:#afa9d9}

Yes, your menu is re-generated by javascript and 'cufon' so what is in your HTML is not really what is being put on the page.  I don't know how to fix that.

Few steps:

edit the sub div of the topmenu div the following way:

<div style="margin: 0 auto; width: 550px;">

Open in new window


Add a new css rule that applies to the images:

.topmenu img {
float: left;
}

Open in new window


From the .topmenu a css rule (line# 36 in style.css), remove: left: 30%;

Good luck

Oh, this is the same one I just helped you with.  I think your new layout does the trick.
