    HTML Problems.....IE vs Netscape

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm working on a new design for my site, www.freejavahelp.com.

    You can see what I have so far by going to

    http://www.freejavahelp.com/newlayout.html

    I like how it looks in IE, and thats how I want it to look, but when you try it in netscape some of the borders are too fat in the wrong places and it is really ugly.

    I would really appreciate any help anyone could give on how to get the borders of the content and email boxes to look like they do in IE (so the netscape version of the page looks almost identical if not identical to the one in IE).

    Thanks in advance!

    Jim

    work with the cellspacing, cellpadding, and border. you could trick it with spacer images. the other thing that might work is if you bgcolor your table in the <table> tag as #000000, give it a cellspacing of 1 and then in the td tag, bgcolor that to the light blue. I also would recommend keeping your cellspacing and cellpadding the same.

    <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" bgcolor="#000000">
    <tr><td valign="top">
    <table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="5" bgcolor="##f4f4f4">
    <tr><td>text</td></tr></table>
    </td></tr>
    </table>

    nested tables are the way to go.

    allright boys! (and girls)

    problem solved....

    I just went through and set border="0" in all the tables....that fixed everything

    That was the problem

    Thanks for all the help
