enough vertical distance between the lines, resulting in boxes that

I am working on the layout, then I will make it a little more asthetic.
Re: horizontal menu line wrapping issue
Yes, this was an issue that was troubling me too in a different
thread, I used line-height in the css to control this behaviour
and also hopefully to try to control the length of the vertical
border, acting as separator. It was good for former to make
things more graceful on wrap but I am still not quite pleased
with the height (it is too tall!) The two aims seem to clash re a
line heighty solution. Bigger line height gives more grace on
wrap but exacerbates the separator height issue. I need to think
more about this.
But I am not totally happy, I think I was getting more graceful
looks in the old way I used to do this: by "|" (the shift + \
key) which was letter height and just what I wanted! But I have
already had a late night knock on the door from the new css/html
police and prefer to avoid a repeat...
