I'm glad you did and welcome to the group! There is such a wealth of
information here and the people are the best.

Changed it and it still works fine in IE6, Opera 7, Mozilla 1.4. It's not
quite right in NN7, but that's the way it will be.  Funny that the
height:{100%} only effects the top menu. It was originally done this way to
look better in NN7 Win. Safari is probably what I need to consider now.

The only check I need now is IE5x Win to see if the padding messes things
up. I'd sure like to know how others add space on their hovers to get them
to look more like buttons.
