How do I fix this spacing issue?

I'm running a player from live365.com and you can see what I've got by heading out to http://www.countryshowdown.com/SIR/index.php

It's all good except for the controls at the bottom. When I'm running the player from my computer, you see what I have as represented by the "right.png" graphic. The "wrong.png" graphic shows you the extra space that's happening and I don't know how to fix it.

The controls themselves are coming from live365's server and I'm not sure to what extent I can manipulate them, but since it's showing up correctly on my computer, I'm thinking there's something I can be doing differently, but I don't know what.

Thoughts?

The CSS is at http://www.countryshowdown.com/SIR/pls.css

Hey, Gary!

Thanks for taking the time to weigh in...

Where do you see spacer images? I'm looking at my index page and I know I've seen dot.gif fairly often, but that's live365's thing and I'm not sure to what extent I can change that.

Maybe I'm looking at the wrong thing, let me know...

Also, as far as the object, are you saying I need to move the "DrawControls" script outside the controls div?

Thanks in advance.

I was able to solve the problem by reverting to the doc type that was used in the original template. Once I did, everything lined up the way that it needed to along with a div that positioned things accordingly. The div by itself didn't do it, but that combined with the doc type knocked it out of the park.

Thanks!
