Can I change the vertical spacing on the HTML <ul> element with the margin property, applied to <ul>?

For example. please look at https://www.whasocal.org/sponsor_benefitst.php.

Note the large amount of white space between the prior text & the start of the <li> items in several places.

If this can't be done with margin on <ul>, how can I do it?

Thanks

Add to UL {}
margin:0

For the P tag remove the margins (why the negative margin?) and add

margin: 1em 0 .6em 0;

Just tweak the margin as you need.

You could use "last-child" to target the last li tag in your list.
For example
li:last-child{padding-bottom:20px}

Open in new window

This will put a nice block of padding under each of your lists and tidy up your spacing a bit..
Cheers,
Neil
