    Netscape Align Problem

    How can I get the poll and the animated gif to align to the top in Netscape like it does in IE? Help is greatly appreciated!


    It's on the right side.

    I'm using NS6.1 and IE6.
    The layout looks identical in both browsers to me i.e. aligned at the top.

    Looks great in IE6 (both at the top)
    In NS 7.1 the poll is way down on the page
    Have a GREAT day!

    I am a little busy at the moment but you've good a vast amount of nested <table> elements which I suspect is part of the cause why the poll isn't aligning to the top and begins halfway down the right hand column area.

    My *GUESS* at the culprit is the <style> tag embedded in the same <tr> element as the poll.
    Code:
          <!-- Poll Start-->
              <table [...]>
      <tr align="center">
        <td><style type="text/css">
           <!--
            .input { [...] }
            .links { [...]}
           -->
          </style>
    IIRC, <style> elements are only valid in the <head> portion of the document. This is probably enough of a curve-ball to confuse Netscape 7's parser (and recent mozilla builds, like I have here)

    While you're at it, this:
    Code:
    <style type=text/css>A { text-decoration : none; }</style>
    Is a particularly nasty syntax error, too. You should have quotes around the type attribute:
    Code:
    <style type="text/css">A { text-decoration : none; }</style>
    In general, this page isn't even close to validating.
