    Hi All,

    I feel like a bit of an idiot for asking this but I've reached the end of my tether on this one and really don't know what to do!!

    I have a basic website that I am setting up with a friend, to do with gemstones. Basically, I have created a navigation bar across the top of the page, with images for the links. In every browser I have tried (APART from IE7) the page loads perfectly, and the nav bar images are butted tight to each other right to left, no gaps and no boxing. In IE7 it shows the links by putting a blue box around them (unvisited) or purple (visited) which seperates the images and sort of ruins the effect of the silver images on the black background. Can someone please explain the following:

    1 - Why the hell does IE7 do this?? IE 5 for Mac does not, neither do Safari, Firefox, Opera etc etc
    2 - How the hell do I get round it??!!

    I wait with baited breath

    Tom

    Have you tried clearing the borders with CSS:
    Code:
    img, a img, a { border: none; }
    ?

    I sure have now, and it solved the problem :-)

    Thanks for that!

    Can anyone explain why ONLY IE 7 showed these borders??? Every other browser simply ignored them and rendered correctly.

    Cheers

    Different browsers have different starting styles. Of course, that particular issue usually shows up in other browsers, too, so I'm not 100% sure what was going on.
