While working with the Welcome menu in your SharePoint site (the drop down menu with the options to sign in as a different user, log out, etc) if you strip the menu out of the table that the SharePoint default.master page uses, the arrow that appears to the right of the Welcome menu may drop down to be level with the baseline of the welcome text.

SharePoint default.master code:

<td valign="middle" class="ms-globallinks">
   <wssuc:Welcome id="IdWelcome" runat="server" EnableViewState="false">

You can correct this by adding a font-size attribute to the wrapping container you use to place the menu in your custom master page:

(CSS Code)
.Custom-WelcomeMenu {
   font-size: 8pt

(Master page code)
<div class="Custom-WelcomeMenu">
   <!-- Welcome Menu -->
   <wssuc:Welcome id="IdWelcome" runat="server" EnableViewState="false">

Look at a sample screenshot.
