    Unhappy Applying table styles, IE - Moz discrepancy

    Hello all

    I'm putting together a contact page on my new site, and for some reason I can't get IE(6) to do this correctly with an XHTML doctype (I've done it successfully before with HTML4)

    View the page in Moz1+ or NS6+ to see how it should look.

    Here is the contact page and click here to see the source code for the pertinent files. (the form styles are in typo.css)

    Maybe the "display:table-cell" for the label doesn't work in IE6?

    I've never used that display method before, so I wouldn't know.

    Well, I got this to work in IE, and I love it for the simple/small amount of HTML required to do it, but the version of Netscape I have (6.2.3) completely bungles it (or is IE bungling it??)

    I'd remove those erroneous asterisks for CSS comments; /* */ is slightly more browser friendly than things like: /* Nav links ************************/

    xhtmlcoder,

    Thanks, but...really?

    /* Nav links ************************/

    All those red asterisks cause a problem for a certain browser or two? Which one(s)?

    Well, basically and CSS grammar has /* */ as delimited-comment hence the user-agent should look for a beginning /* and an end */ thus if you forget to end the delimited comment it could "theoretically" halt the CSS parser, to see this in action you could try copy-and-paste via the W3C CSS Validation Service.

    However, it's highly unlikely it will break the display within a standard web browser since we know they tend to skip and move on to the next line of markup, etc.

    Oh, so all that confusion was to point out the fact that I may forget to close the comment, and not that there is acutally anything erroneous about it? Thanks for watching my back, but I can take care of closing my comments, thank you.

    Do you happen to have an answer for the question I posted instead of just interjections on my commenting techniques?
