[Fwd: Re: Re: First timer here but not to CSS - ten]

I think I might have found the culprit. In an attempt to get validation I
had to take out the Flash embed statement in the html coding and put the
following:

<!--[if IE]><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.ca
b#version=7,0,19,0" width="150" height="150"
class="left"><script>/*<![endif]-->
  <object data="images/flash/TENhomePage.swf"
type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="150" height="150" class="left">
    <script type="text/javascript">/**/</script>
    <param name="movie" value="images/flash/TENhomePage.swf" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" /> 

This accounted for the bizarre behavior in IE. When I moved the item to the
3rd paragraph, it cleared! The space disappeared and it looks normal.

So I went back to the 3rd version which has the embedded Flash and that
definitely looks better. If you use both IE and FF, go to: 
http://www.theempowermentnetwork.org/newsite/default3.htm.

It looks almost the same. In IE however there's a slight gap between the
image in the header and the bottom of the header div border. I tried setting
the margin, border and padding to zero in the IE CSS for the image but no
effect, even the header itself with the exception of the border. No dice.

Am I missing something here?

Thanks for the help tho. It's much appreciated.
