Hey all,
i have a little problem with my latest site concerning netscape... it's puttig these annoying horrible white lines in between my top graphics of the page.. in IE it displays everything fine and dandy.. but in netscape on the other hand it shows up nasty. The strange thing is it doesn't do it for all pages... only my index.html contact.html and feature.html the others are fine.. so i thought i would use the normal template and paste the other stuff in it from the ones that don't work.. but they still come out the same.. i don't understand.. i'm tearing hair out here and that doesn't look good either..
can anyone spare some time to help..? if so the address is []
Thanks a bunch...

It looks like all of the graphics are in one table with a height attribute of 500 pixels. If all of the table rows don't add up to 500 pixels high (I didn't take the time to do the math), NS may well add some space into your table. Simply removing the height attribute on the table may correct the problem.

Here's another possibility: in the HTML for your table, Netscape will often read a space or hard return as if it is a <br> tag.

In your code, try deleting everything between </tr> and <tr>, so it all occurs on one line with </tr><tr> butted up together -- see if the white line problem doesn't go away.

Yes, this makes the HTML harder to read and we all expect spaces and line breaks in HTML to be ignored by the browser. No matter, Netscape has shown this behavior since the beginning of tables.
