Extra whitespace in sidebar, IE only (5 posts)

    In IE, I get extra blank lines in the sidebar just above "NCS Weblogs" on the right.

    In FF, it renders perfectly.

    I've looked at the code and can't see anything obvious, but I'm no coder and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

    Thanks in advance for any help,

    Could be a number of things, i'd first go for margin or padding above the h2, ul or li that's there.

    I have just viewed the source and this is what I see.

    <li><h2>About this Blog</h2>
    An online educational technology resource for teachers and staff at <A HREF="http://www.ncs-nj.org" target="_blank">Northfield Community School</A><em> (and the rest of the world)!</em>

    <li><h2>The Man Behind the Curtain</h2>

    At the very end of it all, you have an open <li> and closing </li> with nothing in there. :/ Also, to fix that 1px off footer problem..I posted some fixes on my test blog.

    This will help it view the same in both IE and FF. As well as the search button. Also, if you'd like. Just download a fixed copy of mine here.

    Upload everything except for the header image. I hope this helps. =)

    Thanks, should have been more clear.

    In the area just below the 'about me' text there is a bunch of conditional PHP code like this:

    /* If this is a 404 page */
    /* If this is a category archive */

    [lots of PHP code removed]

    etc. etc. etc.

    That doesn't render apparently when you view source. It's only there if the logical conditions are met. Doubt I can remove it. Perhaps I just have to live with it?
