having problems with my css/positioning menu

hi,

So I am using CSS Sculp and menu writer to build my page layout, I'm not super good or really very good at all w/ css I'm an oldschool tables convert :) - but I am having one hell of a time trying to position my menu made w/ the menu writer, can someone give me some guidance? I am going to upload a screenshot and the page code I am using. Basically I have my main header with my large graphic, but the top nav contains the background for the menuwriter menu (I am just using a transparent first level.) -

image is at
socaldesignproblem.jpg
(also in the image you can see I am ahving problems positioning the logo on the left side of the page effectively, if someone could point me in the right direction there also, would be much appreciated)
Code is at
socalcodeproblem.doc
(the image floating to the left I removed from the code itself cuz I wanted to focus on one problem @ a time)

Anyways any help would be much appreciated, and you might just save my head from imploding trying to figure out what the eff I am doing wrong. (which is likely a good many things)

Please post a URL where we can view the page. It is too difficult to debug with just a .jpg and a .doc file. I need to see it on the web to debug how it looks on the web.

OK I see the page. What exactly is wrong with it? What are you trying to do? What happens instead of what you expect?

I am trying to move the menu down so it is aligned in the center of the gradient bar in the header image up top. So, I want equal space from the bottom of the gradient bar, to the top of the gradient, between the text.

update menu.css (line 19):

ul#cssmw7 li {

add:

margin-top:7px;

hey ray, thanks for responding. I actually rethought my design and rexported my image to have the bottom border be a seperate div, you can see the fixed url at

socaltest2.html

But I now have a bigger problem.

I jsut opened my site up on both internet explorer & firefox on my virtual machine and have 2 problems.

In firefox on my windows virtual machine, the font on the menu is totally different than it is on my mac... I am not sure why this would be. It is bolder and just fugly in general.

And the worst part, i opened up internet explorer, and the site is not appearing at all! I have no idea why this would be happening, could you take a look for me?

thanks
