: odd alignment issue

I have this site close to launch

A couple of things are not quite right and have eluded my attempts to correct them.

If you look at the two frontpage columns, build projects and industry news, they are actually two separate articles using {loadposition xx} to show two article categories.

I do not know why the left column has the extra arrow below the title and before the article
(i solved this myself a few minutes after I posted and it was crap put in by tinyMCE)

I also do not know why the right column arrows are one line below the title.

I would also like to have the right column articles separated but one line in between the articles and one line beneath the main title and the first article.

The arrow is currently published in line with the content here:

Template.CSS - Line 977

.s5_newsflash {
    background: url("../images/s5_nf_arrow.png") no-repeat scroll left top transparent;
    font-size: 0.85em;
    font-style: italic;
    margin-bottom: 8px;
    padding-left: 36px;

Where if you wanted it to be with the h4 titles you would have to have to set the background on this line:

Template.CSS - Line 964

.newsflash-title {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;  url("../images/s5_nf_arrow.png") no-repeat scroll left top transparent;)
    font-size: 1em;
    height: auto;
    margin-bottom: 4px;
    padding: 7px 0 0 36px;

You can probably do something like this to add space between the articles on the right column

Template.CSS - Line 989

.s5_nf_readon {
    display: block;
    font-style: normal;
    padding-bottom: 10px;

P.S. - Your site looks great. Well done!
