IE blows out DW MX tables

 10:18 pm on Apr 20, 2006 (gmt 0)

I'm building a site using Dreamweaver MX. When I preview my work in IE, Netscape & Safari, I've found that my table doesn't remain 800 pixels in IE. The photos and wrap-around text don't seem to work as well viewed in IE and the content extends past the 800 pixels.

Any ideas?

Hello Wendy
Are you using HTML or CSS to constrain the widths?

Different browsers may use different default values for the margin and padding settings in both HTML tables and in CSS. A first step might be to explicitly set all the margins and paddings to zero.

If it is IE that is behaving differently, do a Google search for CSS Bugs in IE and you'll find a wealth of resources. Also, ensure that your DOCTYPE is set to a valid setting - some browsers go into "quirks mode" when the DOCTYPE is not a modern and syntactically correct version.
