rate this thread
pretty happy with it but when I voew the site in IE there is a black border
around the table - as there is supposed to be- however, in firefox the
border doesn't show up. How do I get the border to show up in firefox?
Any help greatfully recieved.
Re: Borders around tables?
I see <table width=640 bordercolor=#000000
but the HTML spec does not contain any bordercolor attribute.
In Netscape and Opera, I see borders that have a 'recessed' styling,
i.e. the top and left sides are dark while the bottom and right sides
are light. In IE I see equally dark border all around. I deduce that
this is default styling, as I don't see anything specified.
In general, you will get more consistent results if you:
- Use a DOCTYPE.
- Use a 'Strict' DOCTYPE.
- Update your code to use CSS rather than style-related attributes on
the HTML tags.
