Please look at http://the-write-approach.com/.
what is causing the horizontal space between header and body, body and footer?

also happens at http://cruisinautobody.com/gallery/ - but not such a concern.

The first space can be removed by setting those images to


The other space is caused by the red parts which should be removed:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<style type="text/css">
body {
margin-left: 0px;
margin-top: 0px;
margin-right: 0px;
margin-bottom: 0px;


<table width="875" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="center">
<td align="center" valign="top"><img src="http://the-write-approach.com/images/footer.jpg" alt="footer" width="875" height="225" border="0" /></td>


which you should remove altogether.

You also have multiple <body> tags among a few other things.

You should look through the source code of your site and compare it to a unmodified Atahualpa.

The basic structure should be


These tags should only appear once: <html>, </html>, <head>, </head>, <body>, </body>

I've ignored this for a while, but it's still haunting me.




Can you give me more instructions on how to apply display: block if that is the problem?

Thanks so much.

you will have to be a bit more descriptive about what is wrong. I look at both sites and say "Ok, that looks nice' since I'm not designing it I can't tell what you think is off

It would also help if you let us know the versions of Atahualpa and WP you are using.
