          Since we can't see your Spry.css or Spry.js code, this is an incomplete picture of the problem. 

           

          Start with this:

           

          #content {

          width: 100%;

          float: left;  /**REMOVE THIS**/

          }

           

          Is there any way you can upload your test page & dependant files to a public web space you control (your remote server) and post the URL here?

           

          All HTML elements have default margins & padding.  You can zero out the CSS margins & padding on individual elements or use a separate CSS Reset to assist with this.

            this is what it looks like - i read it here that it is because i would have to set the image display to box or something like that - but how do i do that?  the content div looks ok until i insert the menu.

            unfortunately i cannot upload it to server right now

              You might try clearing floats after the Spry menu.

               

              #content {

              clear:left;

              }

               

              Without a link, it's impossible to offer more advice.  Sorry.

                Yes i got rid of the float, but did not help, actually in the beginning i did not have float, i thought if i float it to left maybe it would fix it but obivously did not.
