    Exclamation Uneven alignment using Firefox, OK with IE7

    http://www.exitfegs.co.uk/Picchoose.html

    The page of thumbnails is OK with IE but not with Firefox.
    I have tried altering the alignment from top to bottom and and back again, but with no success.
    Does anyone know of a fix, or what is also likely, where have I gone wrong?

    Thanks for any pointers.

    Code:
     - CSS
    
    * { margin: 0; padding: 0; } 
    
    html, body {
    	margin: 0px;
    	padding: 0px;
    	display: inline-block;
    	background-color: #CCCCCC;
    	color:white;
    
    
    }
    .wrapper {
    	text-align: center;
    	background-color: #cccccc;
    	color:white;
    	margin-top:0px;
    
    }
    .wrapper p {
    	display: inline;
          font-size: 70%      
    }
    .wrapper span {
    	margin: .5em;
    	vertical-align: bottom;
    	width: 120px;
          height: 100px;
    	display: table-cell;
          display: inline-block;
    }
    .wrapper p span {
    	vertical-align:top;
    }
    .wrapper p img {
    	margin-bottom: 0px;
    	border: none;
    	margin-top: 0px;
          
    }	
    .wrapper a {
    	text-decoration: none;

    Two things Frank,

    the first line of your body section where you have the home,.jpg, shouldn't end like this..

    Code:
    height="42" /> </a>
    It should be
    Code:
    height="42"></a>
    The / can be used as a closing tag but only when the item doensn't have its own. eg <a href"#"> has the closing tag </a> so you don't need it; whereas <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Submit this Data" /> has no closing tag so to close it you need to use the forward slash.

    As for your actual question, I would put al your image and the corresponding text into an unordered list.

    Code:
    <ul>
      <li><a href="firstb.html"><img src="First.jpg"  alt="" width="100" height="80"><br />Steve at Mapperton.</a></li>
      <li></li>
    </ul>
    Which has led me to find that all your <br> tags should be <br /> though I don't think changing all them will fix your problem.

    At the risk of sounding like a busted record; you really should loook again at the script I sent you. It Works. I haven't sent you the nav menu however, I can send a simpler one, which you will see at the site I used before as a demo for you. When I have finished the project I am doing just now, I can then send you the proper (fully functional), nav menu.

    Just think, every change you need to make in the page you have written about here, amount in total to lots and lots. In a server-side script, such as mine, those changes need be done, only once as there is just one line of code for that output.

    Much easier.

    Hello Bazz,

    Nice to hear from you again.
    There is no hurry for the prpgram. I will very much like to have it when you can without stress. What I am doing at the moment, is experimenting with all the various ways of coding a picture menu.
    The menu "Steven" is a Javascript one with hover over to display. The others are at present based on one sent me by (I believe) VIPStephan some time ago.
    Regarding the extra bits in my code. My eyesight is not very good and I often miss these.
    I will make it consistent

    Regards,
    Frank

    EDIT. Altering this coding mistake has made no difference. Firefox still messes up the layout.
