I believe I have that under control now and I revamped the nav bar in
light of the listamatic approach - with a very helpful assist from
Just one thing is driving me nuts, at this point. (Well, many things
are, but mainly just one on this page.) I can't figure out why the
nav bar is adding extra space under itself. It is sort of the
opposite of margin collapse!
(And the extra space seems to be under both the top and bottom nav
bars in IE on a PC, but only under the bottom nav bar in FF on a Mac.
If you or someone could give the CSS a quick glance, and are able to
spot anything, that'd be great.

affects this page as none of it is pointed to by the HTML. Or at
