    I have my links on the left in a single column with the whole page as a table. In this single column, I have a nice looking marble background and it's seemless (I forget the proper term) so that no matter how long the rest of the page might expand the column, it wraps . . . seemlessly.

    My problem is, with a <p> and </p>, the double-spacing between the links takes one of the links past IE's window when maximized at 800 x 600, so it would be easy for a novice computer user (of which I think most of the visitors will probably be) running 800 x 600 (which I'm pretty sure most novices run) to never even see that last link.

    If I switch to <br> between each link, it's just far too scrunched together.

    And if I were to make that column split with rows for each link, I can't get my 431 pixel high background graphic wrapping itself down the page (or can I?)

    Here's a link for a quick glance at the page:

    How can I get my links a little bit closer together but still retain the wrapping of my background?

    Ok, add this to your CSS file:
    Code:
    p {
    margin-top: 5px;
    margin-bottom:5px;
    }
    adjust the pixels as you see fit. Try it with 5px and then see...

    You could also use
    HTML Code:
    line-spacing: 135%

    Thanks a bunch!!! Both of those suggestions work wonderfully!!! One last quick question, if I may - is either of those approaches going to be backwards compatible with more browsers???

    As far as I know, they are both compatible to the same extent as they are both part of CSS. I may be wrong however!
