    Question Nested Tables and Netscape 4.79

    I'm having some trouble using nested tables to produce table borders. The website looks fine in Explorer and Netscape 6.2, but some of the pages have problems in Netscape 4.79. For example on the following page the first row doesn't properly span the entire row, so the outer table's black background shows through on the right side:

    On the following page it has the same problem PLUS the main content table doesn't fill the entire left side of the page like it does on other pages on the site. I've tried setting the table width to 100%, which has worked on some pages, but that doesn't improve things on this page:

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    My suggestion is that if it looks fine in all other browsers and it's perfectly usable in NN4 then don't worry about it. It's a common problem and nowadays it really isn't worth worrying about. Like I say, as long as the site's usable.

    Just as a side point, I downloaded the stats for our corporate site today and of the last 1,000 unique users, only 7 were using NN4 -- hence my "so what?" attitude!
