    Try using Firebug to look at the CSS which generally controls layout and appearance.

    Hello. Yes, I do know this. I have been searching for a while but I cannot understand where it is getting the instruction to have that height from.

    Thanks

    Yeah, it seems weird to me too. The div ID is facebook feed, but I assume that's not what is really there (no code for that)?

    Looks like you have code above the DOCTYPE which can cause major problems in some browsers, and some other errors:

    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.physoc.org.uk%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

    Doesn't seem like those would cause the layout strangeness but you should fix those anyway. Try validating the CSS code too, just in case.

    Thanks, I fixed those errors. Changing the facebook feed style doesn't do anything to the height unfortunately.

    Hmmm...I appear to have fixed it by putting overflow:hidden in the facebook feed div style. Cheers
