    I'm trying to get a design off the ground for my school computer club's website, However, I'm having a couple of problems.

    The biggest: Extra spacing whenever I put in the XHTML doctype. See for yourself:
    >> Just an <html> tag.
    >> With the XHTML Transitional doctype.
    The spacing I'm talking about is obvious in the logo, but I'm also concerned about the 1px 'line' at the bottom of the navigation stand-in.

    Secondly, look at either page in IE. I'm using IE6.0/Win to see this problem: When you hover on a second-level or higher link in the navigation, the hover effect isn't taking as wide a box as it should. I'm stumped. There are no negative padding or margin values anywhere.

    Thirdly, I found it interesting that when I omit the declaration "#navigation li { padding-bottom: 1px; }", IE adds a huge gap. Or when I set it to zero. Take a look here.

    I already know that IE won't honor my plea to make the direct child "a" of "li" class "parent" or "active" be bold (li>a {font-weight: bold;}). IE just doesn't tolerate the > selector. If you could think of a workaround, that'd be appreciated, as would comments on the look of the navigation. But mostly - How can I get rid of that unsightly extra spacing when I switch to XHTML? I really want to make a standards-compliant site that can validate! Feel free to look at the code and CSS (embedded) for each page!
