you are specifying the cell width (14px) and coloring it blue. Netscape freaks out. Solution? Put a 14x14 px spacer GIF (make it transparent) in that cell (the one that doesn't align) and voila! Netscape is happy )
In IE, the bar down the left hand side lines up with that little curve graphic I've got at the top of my menu. In NN, the bar will not line up for anything. I've beaten my head on the desk for way to long. I'm sure it's REAL simple, but I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.
Thanks a lot......
Netscape won't render empty table cells. While the 14X14px transparent gif would work. You could use a 1X1px transparent gif and set its size to 14X14. But then you have the overhead of the gif (around 80 bytes) and the overhead of the code for the image tag (another 20 bytes or more). You could just throw in a non-breaking space using HTML entities and the cell is no longer empty. A non-breaking space is nbsp; preceded by an '&'. This only takes 4 bytes and Netscape will render the cell properly. Now consider 6 bytes versus 100 or more. Now when your trying to get the smallest possible size for your HTML downloads which is a better course of action?

The line I'm having a problem with is the TD WIDTH=14 line. Maybe I'm being dense, but I don't see what is wrong. If you could elaborate a bit more on what I'm doing wrong, I'd appreciate it. Otherwise I'll have to use the transparent gif.
Thanks for your time.
