SOT: HTML question about clickable area

On the development version of my Web app, the clickable area of some
anchors
is the text area and the padding (margin and border are both zero). On
the
production version, only the padding is clickable. Any hints on how to
track
down the difference that makes a difference would be appreciated.

TIA,
Jeffrey

With firefox you could use firebug to discover how these properties
are getting set.

The style and layout as reported by Firebug are identical. The HTML, at
least
right around the problematic section is identical. And the problem is
not
perfectly reproducible. Sometimes it’s there, sometimes not. Firefox
was
not restarted between non-working and working sessions. Sigh.

It may be worth checking that the html is valid. View the source in
the browser and copy/paste the complete page source into the w3c html
validator.
