One more go at the Blogger beta navbar issue

Thought I'd try again for a techie to solve my problem, as I got no responses at all to my posting of November 18th. I won't repeat it all.

Some time ago I searched out some code that I put into my Blogger template to hide the navbar at the top. Recently I've been looking at migrating from Blogger to Blogger beta and a search of the web quickly turned up the new code needed to hide the navbar in beta. It came with an add-on that gets rid of the space left at the top of screen.

The code can be found at http://tinyurl.com/yl6p3g - Technique 1, with the extra bit that you will find after Technique 3.

Testing the code on someone else's blog that has just migrated, I was very pleased with the result. That was until I realised that the code works properly in Firefox, but in IE it hides the bar but does not remove the white space at the top.

So does anyone have code that works properly in both browsers?


Cheers.

hey trig - probably better if you do remind us of the problem, don't worry about repeating yourself because people will probably be too lazy to go find your previous post.

at the very least, link back to it, but if I were you I would repost the whole question.

trig - i re-entered it back in the main body of the post in case it catches the eye of someone who might be able to help you, but who might not be bothered to read comments.

hope someone responds - if not it probably means no one here knows the answer.

I would like to know, but my own techie person tried to figure out how to get rid of the space on my blog and we never did figure it out.
