I have designed an html layout which you can see in this page: Click Here.
The problem is that under the header there is a white space. I don't know where that comes from could somebody help me.
And if you see the link menu it is moved a little bit to the right how can I make so the links start from left.

Here is the code:


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

<title>Layout 39</title>
<meta content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" http-equiv="content-type">
<meta content="HAPedit 3.1" name="generator">
<link href="style.css" media="screen" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />


<div id="container">

    <div id="header">

    <div id="navigation">
        <ul id="nav">
            <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Products</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
            <li><a href="#">My Account</a></li>

    <div id="content">
        <p><strong>1) Content here.</strong> column long long column very long fill

Have you tried removing the header from its div? It might seem a bit semantically unorthodox, but there is no negative effetcs I can think of.

If you have trouble, his will help you understand what I mean:
Take this:

<div id="container">
    <div id="header">

And remove the div "header" like so:

<div id="container">

Just adding this because sometimes I'm not very clear :)

I want the <div id="header"> because I want to put some logos there. I don't understand where the space comes from.

Remove line #58 from your code. (// CSS menu)

Add <div style="clear:both;"></div> on line #28

Fix the height on line 38.


Thank you for the help I fixed the white space problem but know that shows up somewhere else. Check this picture here.
And how can I put the menu bar more to the left.

Problem Solved
