    Angry Problem with table cell heights

    Here's the deal:

    I have a table that I use as the layout for a web site. Some cells contain images that connect with each other to form a nice, smooth layout, while other cells are empty and used to hold content.

    One cell in particular is not holding it's specified height. This causes the layout image to break up and look bad. Since there is no other cell in the same row that is causing the problem, I can't figure out why this is happening.

    By the way, I'm only experiencing this problem in Internet Explorer. In FireFox, it looks perfect. And to think, it's usually the other way around

    Thanks in advance

    Why not let us see the page in question. Or perhaps copy paste the code. Most likely you need to use % instead of setting hard numbers. This will also allow most browsers to resize the page accordinly.

    Darn skippy on the using of CSS instead of Tables!!!

    Tables should be used for tables, css should be used for layout!!!

    But then, I use a text editor for web developement, so l might be considered a fanatic.

    So, don't listen to me, listen to sun7dots!

    I am in complete agreement with Dhej, tables are only to be used for tables. Use css for layout.

    Great book: 'Designing with web standards' Read it

    If your gonna stick with using a table, here is something I have noticed...
    In IE, changing the "Text Size" setting under the "View" menue will affect
    tables used for layout, especially when images are involved. Try looking at
    the web page with different text sizes.
