i have tried making a horizontal rule <hr> that i can put under my text links but it always spaces them out by a huge amount. I am trying to achieve the effect that is kind of like what you see to the right of this page. But exactly like what you see on the left link set on www.seochat.com.

i am using dreamweaver can someone help?

It's most likely done with background images in DIVs or table cells

.field { height: 20px; line-height: 20px;
background: #ffffff url(somepicture.jpg); padding: 4px; }

<div class="field">link1</div>


<TD class="field">link1</TD>

Actually, that's achieved by setting the border property. CSS allows you to set border-top, border-bottom, border-left, and border-right, independently.

You can also set the border width and style, to get a grooved or inset border.

So, search for "CSS border properties", and you should be on the right track.

THANKS, will do!
