    Hi,
    My WP website (www.timw.com) seems to display a large area of white space before content is shown. I can't seem to work out what could be causing it. Any help please?

    You have over 20 XHTML Validation errors. These are the number 1 reason things don't look right in either IE or Firefox.

    Try fixing these and see if it helps.

    I've tried to clean up as many as psosible - ignoring the ones to do with embed. I still have the problem though... any other ideas ? :(

    Not to muddy up this thread but...

    kill the embed, you do not need it
    its NOT a standard tag, its a holdover from Netscape (version: Long Ago).

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=-4008517364240500716" width="400" height="325">
    <param name="movie" value="http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=-4008517364240500716" />
    </object>

    is all you need.

    I'm also having a Flash issue. What was the CSS problem? Maybe my theme has a similar issue.
