This works fine in IE, but is breaking in Firefox, and reported in
Netscape as well.  I can't determine why.
click on the real estate section on the left nav area.

You can see where the green real estate image is being moved down a
line in firefox, where IE displays it correctly.

<table cellpadding="1" cellspacing="0" border="0" width="800"><tr
class="header"><td><a href="defaultXSL.asp"><img
src="XSl/CharterMI/images/headers/Sub Page Headers/Header Top Half.jpg"

alt="Charter Main Street" border="0"><br><img
src="XSl/CharterMI/images/headers/Sub Page Headers/Header Left
Corner.jpg" alt="Charter Main Street" border="0"><img
src="XSl/CharterMI/images/headers/Sub Page Headers/Header Bottom Real
Estate.jpg" alt="Charter Main Street" border="0"></a></td><td

Any help would be appreciated.

Why not just give the actual URL?

The two images on the second row are 94 and 911 pixels wide. Now first
of all, how is a 911px image supposed to fit in a 800px table? And
secondly, for many browsers 94+911 = 1005 pixels which when browser
chrome and scrollbars are taken into account is too wide for many
users' browser windows. So FireFox wraps the second image onto a
second line in order to try and prevent any horizontal scrolling (a
forlorn hope as something else on the page pushes the width out

And have a look at the form in Opera...

Thanks, Steve.

For some reason, an _awful_ lot of people (mostly outside this
newsgroup), seem to think it's the done thing to post a home-page URL
with navigation instructions, instead of the actual URL. It drives me
up the wall.

Another code error is the use of invalid image URLs; spaces are not a
legal character.  You should encode spaces in filenames as %20 when
used in a URL, or, better, give your files names without spaces or
punctuation in the first place so their names can be used directly in
