Space at top of latest post (5 posts)

    There is too much white space above the text in my last post (sticky). It's between the date line under the post name. In editor mode I type in the first line at the top, but when published I've always got that wasted space at the top. Is there anything I can change in the css file to get rid of the space?
    The site is eaa1189.org

    Looks like that's a bunch of empty paragraphs -

    <p></p>
    <p></p>
    <p class="MsoNormal"></p>
    <p class="MsoNormal"></p>
    <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: left;"></p>
    <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: left;"></p>
    <p></p>
    <p></p>

    Also, pasting from Word tends to add all kinds of incompatible code - that's not a good way to add content to a website.

    Thanks. I'll take your advice and not use Word. But where did you find the code above? I don't see it in my post when I look at the HTML. Wherever it is, if I delete it and avoid Word will the space then go away?

    It's visible on your site using "View Source" in Firefox - which shows the generated HTML code. Yes, try deleting the post and avoiding Word. You could try copying your text into a plain text editor, saving as plain text and then copying it into a new post.

    I'm doing that and it's working. It looks like I have to get rid of all the Word-created part. I'm doing that in a new post. I'll re-name after it's finished.

    Word sure is convenient to get the text the way you want it to look. Didn't know I was creating other problems.

    Thanks!
