I do use @charset (utf-8); even if it actually serves no purpose: some time ago I've put it in my default CSS template file and never cared about it anymore... You can safely remove the BOM from any utf-8 document, as it serves no purpose: http://www.unicode.org/faq/utf_bom.html#29. If your

To make the site truly fluid you'll need to use relative size units (em, %) in place of pixels. This will ensure that container elements change size in proportion to the font contained therein. Regards Scott Swabey Lafinboy Productions www.lafinboy.com -Original Message- From: [EMAIL

Sorry I wasnt clear on the second point. The Menu-Item borders produce the bevelled effect on the menu I believe. Because you have specified a height AND line-height of 20px, the borders are always 20px apart. If the List item height were either auto or specified in EM (say 1.3EM), the
