RESOLVED - height problem: IE good, Opera bad

Please surf to

Notice, with IE 6 as your browser, the vertical height between the main menu images on the left-hand menu are correct.
Now, surf to it using Opera 7.23. Notice how the vertical distance between the first 4 images is too small. And, it is not the same as using IE.

The menu is at ... nu_data.js

What did I do wrong?
What do I need to change?

"Opera bad" got that right :lol:

Though this is not the problem you need to upgrade to 5.12.

The problem seems to be particular to Opera 7x, since it renders correctly in Opera 6x. I tried putting in imagepadding=3; in your menu definition along with the itemheight, but that didnt' work, then just on the off chance, I put that in the actual style definition for that menu and that seemed to fix the problem in Opera 7.

I added imagepadding=3 as you suggested to my MainMenuStyle.

Well, I got the VERTICAL spacing that I wanted, but I also got 3 pixels of HORIZONTAL spacing that I did not want. That is the trouble with padding. It adds space all the way around.

So, any other suggestions?

Hi Dave,

Not necessarily. If you set any padding as a single value, like

Code: Select all


then indeed it does pad the intended object all the way around. But if you specify it like so:

Code: Select all

padding="3 2 1 0";

then you can control the ammount of padding on any side. The numbers apply to Top, Right, Bottom, and Left padding, in that order. If you don't specify a measure, px is used by default (as in this example). So, if you wanted to add 3px to the top of the image padding, but nothing anywhere else, you'd do:

Code: Select all

imagepadding="3 0 0 0";

These are css rules btw, not "milonic" rules. So the same thing can be done with any style.

Hope that helps,

Perfect solution was imagepadding="3 0 2 0";

AND, I learned something new today.
