what property do I need to add so that even when they are empty, borders etc still show up?
I've seen it mentioned here before but I can't find the thread with it in. I've given a cell an id and the id info is in a linked style sheet if that's of any help.
You don't even need CSS for this. Just put an & nbsp; (minus the space after the &) in each "empty" table cell.
Or an image, 1x1 px
Using & nbsp ; for very small table cells can have unwanted design effects in Netscape
gah no, I don't want to do that!
If you are using CSS you should be able to forget about HTML borders and use CSS border attributes instead - hopefully doing so will solve your problem.
I am using CSS borders but when I leave cells empty they don't show up.
I've tried using
and it kinda 1/2 works, in IE opacity and background colours show up and the boarders don't. In NS border and background colours show but opacity doens't. I don't know what's going on.

Add a space .. that works for me
I would, but if you add a space when you change the text size (through the browser) the size of the table will change no matter what you put in the css for heights and widths. Its kinda critical that this doesn't happen :/
ah no problem,
I've just fixed it, sorry, I added a class to the & nbsp; that had a font-size:0px rule in it and its fixed, cheers for all your help
