Remove excess space in question text - help!

Thanks for your ideas and feedback.
I have tried to clear cache, but this makes no difference. Also, viewing the survey in FF(3.6) or IE(7) gives similar results (the white space is slightly bigger in FF). If I add Help text, the space increases. I have used the BASIC template.

I have attached here an extract from the survey I'm working on. I've tried uploading it to the Demo site, and with BASIC template selected it shows the white space I'm referring to. Hope this makes clear what I'm trying to modify.

Most of the space is cell padding.

In question.pstpl, change line 5:
<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="8" border="0">

To:
<table width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0">

And then add the following to the end of template.css:
.be {
	padding: 0.5em 1em;
}
 
td.answer p {
	margin-left: 1em;
}



Cheers,

Thanks Tony. That's great. Your solution took care of most of the extra white space. I did notice though that in the process all white space disappeared from around text boxes in 'long free text' questions, making them look a bit cramped. To fix this I altered line 655

FROM

.numeric input,.text-short input,.text-short textarea,.text-long textarea,.text-huge textarea
{
margin-left: 1em;
}

TO

.numeric input,.text-short input,.text-short textarea,.text-long textarea,.text-huge textarea
{
margin: 1em;
}


This change added a bit more space around the text box.

Cheers,

Ian

Eileen, can you activate a sample survey so I can see the source and relevant styles?

It looks like you have spaces entered in the question help fields.

Check the source and remove the spaces.

Hmm...it looks like you will still have a little white-space due to the padding in the question help cell.

Add the following to the end of template.js to hide that row completely if empty:
$(document).ready(function(){
 
	if($.trim($('.survey-question-help').text()) == ''){
		$('.survey-question-help').parent().hide();
	}
 
});
