Dropshadow style spacing and hyperlink

I have a drop shadow screenname and there are 2 problems with it.

1) I'm trying to get space after it and it doesn't take. It overlaps with what's below it.
2) When I make it a hyperlink, it breaks funny. The second line below is a hyperlink.

Messed up ScreenName
Here is the image without the hyperlink, it runs into the box below it.

Runs into box below.
Here is the code for the screenname:
.ScreenName, .ScreenName a:link, .ScreenName a:visited, .ScreenName a:link:hover
{
   text-shadow: 1px 2px 3px #323232; /* filter: shadow(Color=#333333, Direction=135, Strength=5); */
   text-transform: uppercase;
   font: 'Trebuchet MS' , Arial, helvetica, verdana, sans-serif;
   font-size: 16px;
   font-weight: bold;
   padding: 3px 6px 3px 6px;
   margin-left: 15px; /*   width: 200px; */
   color: #FFF;

}

.ScreenName, .DarkBlueBox, .LightBlueBox, .InstructionBox, .ScreenName a:link, .ScreenName a:visited, .ScreenName a:link:hover
{
   border-style: none;
   -webkit-box-shadow: -3px 3px 4px rgba(50, 50, 50, 0.90);
   -moz-box-shadow: -3px 3px 4px rgba(50, 50, 50, 0.90);
   box-shadow: -3px 3px 4px rgba(50, 50, 50, 0.90);
}

.ScreenName, .DarkBlueBox, .InstructionBox, .ScreenName a:link, .ScreenName a:visited, .ScreenName a:link:hover
{
    background-color: #629FCC; 
}

.ScreenName
{
      margin-bottom: 55px !important;
}

Open in new window


And in the code in front:
<asp:Label ID="lblScreenName" runat="server"></asp:Label>

Open in new window


In the codebehind I set the text and if there is a hyperlink, add the HTML coding and class.

            lblScreenName.Text = "Register"
            lblScreenName.CssClass = "ScreenName"

Open in new window


Thanks!

The page isn't published. I only have it locally.

Not sure how I would use those tools to debug the CSS. It's not "broken" per se, I just need to know what's wrong with the way I'm doing it. There are no errors, etc.

Thought someone might know CSS and look at the code I provided and see what's causing the problems.

I'll see if it's possible for me to publish it, but I don't know if I can.

If you look at my profile you will see I DO KNOW CSS; I looked at the code; it gives nothing but a desire to see context, so there is some hope of finding a solution.

As for no errors... just because there are no error messages does not mean there are no errors.  Validate the generated HTML and CSS before you make a claim like that.

Hi,

Again, if you post some HTML code, then we can look at it. If it's just CSS, we can't help you much!

Hope it helps u...
