Dynamic menu appears correctly from a file named MenuTest.aspx. Dynamic menu items are separated by white spaced when the menu is rendered from Site.Master.

Rendered correctly:
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="MenuTest.aspx.cs"
     Inherits="StockProMax.MenuTest" %>

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

Site.Master Renders Extra White Space:

         </asp:Menu>
        </div>

I cannot find any difference in the code.

Thanks,

What if you comment out this line, or change the height:
"class="auto-style1" style="width: auto; height: 24px; "

I changed the rendering mode to List.

RenderingMode="List"

Now I need to separate the static items and increase the menu width.
