Strange issue with gap between elements

Hi, I have an issue with two elements in a container that have a gap between them but I cannot see where the gap is coming from.

Basically, I have a standard centered page layout, the relevant CSS for holding the elements (a banner and then a nav menu underneath) is:

body {
	margin: 0px;
	padding: 0px;
	text-align: center;

#container {
	width: 1024px;
	margin-left: auto;
	margin-right: auto;
	text-align: left;

And the CSS for the elements is:

#topbanner {

#menubar {

The banner goes across the top of the page and the idea is that the menubar (which contains a number of images and their rollovers) fits directly underneath without any gap. But there seems to be white space of about 5px in all browsers and I can’t see why. I tried adding a clearfloat into the HTML, i.e:

.clearfloat { 
    font-size: 1px;
    line-height: 0px;

But this doesn’t do anything.

HTML is currently:

<div id="container">
<div class="topbanner"><img src="image/banner2.png" alt="banner" /></div>
<div class="clearfloat"></div>
<div class="menubar">(various button images)</div>
<div class="clearfloat"></div>

Any ideas as this has me stumped!

First thing i noticed is that your css selectors #topbanner and #menubar refer to element ids that don’t exist in the markup.

<div class=“topbanner”><img src=“image/banner2.png” alt=“banner” /></div>
<div class=“menubar”>(various button images)</div>

you could either change the css to:

.topbanner {

.menubar {

or the markup to:

<div id="topbanner"><img src="image/banner2.png" alt="banner" /></div>
<div id="menubar">(various button images)</div>

Maybe this is the issue?

try *{margin:0;padding:0;} and/or img {vertical-align:bottom;}. Other than that your prob going to have to supply a link and then someone can tell you in two secs.

Thanks Eric, vertical-align:bottom worked straight off.

Bit of a strange one, it doesn’t sound like an obvious style to try but it worked!

Thanks again
