    Hello. Maybe this will work.
    Find the div that contains the list and change the line-height property for that div in the stylesheet.
    Or.. if the list is contain in an

      tage, you'll need to change the line-height in the ul, using the stylesheet.
      Hope that works.

    Thanks for helping...I guess my problem is that I don't see "line height" designated anywhere in the style sheet. And there are so many sidebar places to adjust, I'm not sure which one. Below is the CSS in case that helps. I'm a newbie so it's all a guessing game for me!
