Table Heights in NN7 & Opera 7
Fruit and Veg

 6:48 pm on Sep 16, 2003 (gmt 0)

I thought I'd be a good little boy and make sure a new site is 'perfect' in all three main browsers, the trouble is I can't afford to lose much more hair.

I'm specifying a table height, thus -

<tr><td width="100%" height="1"></td></tr>

It's just a little table inbetween two main ones.

It aligns in Explorer. It doesn't in Opera or Netscape.

The absolute bizarre thing is that if I change the height to 10 or 100 it aligns in Opera and Netscape, but if you input a number below 10 it doesn't work! ****!

I thought, hang on, maybe it only works with 'whole' numbers (divisible by 10 for some strange reason) but I tried 76 and that works too.

Opera and Netscape seem to default at 10 and refuse to go any lower. Is this really the case?

What's a way out of it?

Netscape 4 seems to ignore many or most settings applied to empty cells, and renders an empty cell as if it were filled with a line of text at the default size. There's nothing magic about 10 pixels, it may just be that your default text is about 10 pixels high on your display.


<tr><td width="100%" height="1" style="font-size: 1px">&nbsp;</td></tr>

I don't want padding or a border on the left or right hand sides of the cell.

The above didn't work in NN7 or OP7, nor does;

<td width="100%" style="height:1px font-size:0;">

Thanks anyway but I'm really not that concerned to keep on trying.
