Paypal buttons and Firefox
Can't get rid of extra space between buttons

I'm having difficulty placing PayPal buttons in tables...

There is an extra space between my Paypal buttons in Firefox in a table.

I found that if I set up my </form> tag this way:
it works great in Internet Explorer.
but it didn't help me in Firefox.

Any suggestions?

Welcome aboard Karey, what you have there is invalid HTML - with the closing </form> between </td> and </tr>. It's an old hack to get forms to play along, but even if it works it's invalid.

What you should try is something like this:

<form class="payPal">


<form class="payPal">

Then in a style section at the head of your document or in a style sheet,

.payPal { margin:0; padding:0; }

If it's just the image buttons you can do something like this for the images too, but I have a feeling it's the old extra-space after form default.

Hey, Rocknbil

Your solution worked perfectly. My website guy says that your fix will also work for any forms not just Paypal. We very much appreciate it.
All the best

Thanks, Karey
