Hi all,

I am trying to work out why my content seems to start 10px, almost the size of a standard <br>, down from its actual $Content content place holder. (I've checked the html of the content and there is nothing in there to indicate why it would be space so much downward. A <p> is placed before the content.

Also when I have a long line text and it is automatically forced down to the next line, well height between the 2 lines seems to be about 3px bigger than what is on a normal plain html page.

I am working in the typography.css, editor.css css pages and non of the elements there have any settings for this behaviour, so I am wondering if these 2 behaviours is being picked up from some other peice of css lying around SS.

Any help would be great

Try using something like Firebug on Firefox or Dragonfly on Opera to inspect the page. This should show you exactly what styles are being applied to each element and where they are coming from.
