Help with category box

Recommended Posts

Hi ! I am new at this so any help would be great! I recently installed a contribution that works by replacing categories.php so that each main category is split by a line and sub categorys are indented with small tree markers. I love it but if you look at the site www.jawproducts.com/catalog and on the left column, do you see how the text is far apart, i wanted to get the text/lines closer together, so that it is all seen on the screen (without customer having to scroll down).....I am so used to html where its cellpadding or spacing or br but with this code i cant figure it out! Any help would be so appreciated!!!

Here is the code for my catalog/includes/boxes/categories.php
