Table query

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Lately I have run into a couple of instances where IE6 has expanded the
width of the table, or the cell in the table, depending on the length of a
line of text within the cell/table.
As there is a banner image at the top and within the same cell, and a
border, this causes a space to appear beside the image.
Is this expected behaviour, or am I inadvertantly triggering a bug?
An example of this behaviour is the Margay Realty bordered entry on:-
All CSS is within the page.
The gap to the right of the banner image is caused by the fact that there is
a line of wrapped text within the cell.
Any comments would be appreciated.

Quoted text here. Click to load it

I see no difference between Netscape 7.2 and IE 6.0.

I don't know much about CSS, but I normally expect the table to size
itself based on the contents.  Yours doesn't, which introduces
horizontal scrolling (as the banner won't let the table resize
gracefully).  What I would reccomend is that "CLICK HERE" be deleted and
the "Margay" and "Property management..." be made text, or at least two
separate graphics, and allowed to collapse with the window.  I'd do the
same with the top banner (make the ball logo, the Hibiscuslink, and the
"Your Community Link..." into separate elements so that they can
collapse too.  Then a user can shrink the window and still use the site.
  There is nothing on the site that really requires 800 pixels, but the
site still demands it.

Also, the Margay banner link is dead.
