Extra space appearing below DIV element

On this page:

...I am seeing a small vertical space between the top row of buttons at the photo. It is a DIV with #nav1wrap

I cannot figure out why that space is appearing. Why would it not be flush with the photo below it?

Thank you.

That's a side-effect from using "display:inline-block" (which is often so very useful). That space is being preserved for descending characters even though there are only white-space characters around that element. Give "vertical-align:top" to "#nav1" to correct that.

Indeed, that fixes it. Thank you!

I couldn't find a better way to center a <ul> element on the screen, without specifying a width. "display:inline-block" took care of it. "display:inline" didn't do the trick. Unless there is a better way that I'm not aware of.

Thanks again.
