Hi. Help me out? =) This problem has bugged me all morning. Here's what's going on:

On this page:

http://test8.ebwebwork.com/

... the rollover background color in the dropdown menus does not completely cover the background -- mouse over the menu items and you will see what I mean. I have tried using display:block to get the background color to fully occupy the rollover background.... but it's not working.

What am I missing? Thanks for your help.

Eric

in reimaginingage.css, around line 210, change the margin-right to 0. That is causing the space on the right.

.menu li a {
padding: 0.5em;
text-decoration: none;
font-size: 1.2em;
font-weight: normal;
color: #597f05;
text-shadow: none;
height: auto;
margin-right: 0;
}
