    IE 5.0 support table height and width?

    Hi, i'm having some problems with IE5.0 supporting table height="100%" and width="90%". It actually stretches the page to aprox. 120% in width.
    Is this a known issue? If so, how do I get around it?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    100% height is a sticky issue and height on tables is something that was never supposeed to be anyway.

    Here is an example of a table at 100% height and 90% width. IE needs to be in quirks mode for this to work which is done by using the xml prologue.

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <title>Untitled Document</title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <!-- force quirks mode with the xml prologue -->
    <style type="text/css">
    /* commented backslash mac hack \*/ 
    html, body{height:100%; padding:0;margin:0} 
    /* end hack */ 
    body {
    height:100%;
    padding:0;
    margin:0
    }
    table {
    height:100%;
    width:90%;
    border:1px solid #000;
    }
    td {border:1px solid red;vertical-align:top;}
    td#toprow {height:24px;width:120px;}
    }
    </style>
    </head>
    <body>
    <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <tr > 
    	<td id="toprow">1</td>
    	<td>2</td>
    </tr>
    <tr> 
    	<td>3</td>
    	<td><p>4</p>
    	 <p>5</p>
    	 <p>5</p>
    	 <p>0</p></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </body>
    </html>
    Hope that helps.

    Paul

    Thank you very much, Paul.
    I'll give this a try tomorrow.
