    try:

    margin-top:0px;

    instead of padding-top:0px;

  5. Has anyone figured out how to kill the line return that's created when
    you insert a form?

    form {

    margin-bottom: 0px;
    padding-top: 0px;

    }


    Arrrrg!

    Now we only need to see the OP's URL to find out what the real problem is.
    So the problem will probably remain a mystery. Or does someone wish to try
    and figure out the URL based on the alleged domain in OP's E-mail address,
    noway.com?

    As far as the guessing game goes: I think he does mean the
    infamous white space below a form (usually noticed when putting
    a form inside a table cell), and that he made a minor mistake in
    the CSS so that the margin-bottom:0 got ignored.

    But again: just guessing :)

    That would be my first guess too.

    My second guess would be that in this case the form does not appear inside
    a table cell but elsewhere. Then it has both a top margin and a bottom
    margin by default, as you can see if you view a page containing

    foo<form action="zap">bar</form>foo

    For some odd reason, popular browsers by default suppress the top margin
    but not the bottom margin.

    If you don't know how to do simple things display a form inline, I recommend
    passing on those website jobs to someone who knows WTF they're doing

  10. Thanks folks....

    I've got two back to back deadlines coming up (web site jobs) and I'm
    burning the candle on both ends.

    I'll apply your suggestions and get back to you with a "Success" or
    "Fail" replay as soon as I can.

    Oh wait, you were being sarcastic. You would be attempting to make an
    implied claim that I couldn't possibly know what I'm talking about because
    I'm covered in tattoos? Funny, that. While you're sitting here trying to cut
    me down on my appearance, I'm making 3 figures an hour consulting for one of
    the most important agencies in the US Government. Joke's on you, dick
