    Need help w/ browser anomaly

    It's getting late in my neck of the woods and I'm having a hard time holding my eyes open, so I'm going to bed after I post this and will check back in the morning.

    I have a curious problem with how firefox renders a page and iexplorer renders it.

    If you open this site the Tip Toad with iexplorer everything is centered. If you open it with firefox everything is to the left. I used <center> tags just outside the table: <center><table /tr></table></center> to force it into the center, but firefox fails... Why?


    Thanks,

    Dave

    ps a possible cause just occured to me that I'll check before going to bed and if I get lucky and it fixes it, I'll post back.

    It wasn't what I thought it might be, but I found the culprit: WIDTH:740; in my background image script...

    Now maybe I'll get some sleep.

    nite all...

    hmm, looks like there is no doctype so this immediately throws IE into quirks mode.

    This link has loads of info that I have found very helpful

    A better solution to Center is set a width (or not) and set right and left margins to auto
