the html code pasted below is the code for a "position" template used for displaying merchandise.

in IE the html shows properly (as i intended) with no internal borders.

in FIREFOX (version, the cells and tables are all bordered.

i have now intentionally put - BORDERCOLOR="FFFFFF' and BORDERWIDTH="0" -wherever i possibly could in order to try and eliminate the borders from showing in firefox - to no avail.

any suggestions?


here is the link if you prefer to view it, within the context of the larger page.

the position is the one marked "test 2" (not the larger position at the top.)


<table width= "760" align= "center" border= "1" bordercolor= "dddddd" cellspacing= "0" cellpadding= "5">
<td width="284" rowspan="7" align="center" valign= "top" border="0" bordercolor="ffffff"><table width="100%" align="center" border="0" bordercolor="ffffff" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="20">
<td width="284" align="left" bordercolor="ffffff" valign="bottom"> <img src="http://example.com/images/3_sneekeefeet/docs_logo_110.jpg"></td>
<td width= "284" align="center" valign="bottom"cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" bordercolor="ffffff"></td>
<td width="284" align="left" valign="bottom" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" bordercolor= "ffffff"></td>
<td align= "center" valign="bottom" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" bordercolor="ffffff" > <p><img src="/products/3_sneekeefeet/b_shoes&boots/a_docs/_200.jpg" align= "center"></p></td>
<td width="284" height="40" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" bordercolor="ffffff"></td>
<td width="284" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="top" border="0" bordercolor="ffffff"></td>

This code has many validation errors, and one or more of them may be causing Firefox to give up trying to interpret it.

I'd strongly suggest running this through the W3C HTML validator and fixing the errors before pursuing the 'appearance' problems. If you prefer a local-PC solution, try HTML Validator Lite, free for personal use from CSE.

Hi scato345 and welcome to WebmasterWorld. You should also note that
are both proprietary (IE only) attributes which don't appear in any formal HTML specification. Firefox therefore does not support these attributes.

You should be able to ensure that there are no borders either with CSS or by specifying

Hi, I have been using dreamweaver and tables to create a site. I am new to websites and am beginning to hear that tables are not the best options and will expand my knowledge of css styles etc.

For now, I still need to fix the problem, of a border colour on a site that works in IE and Safari, not working in Firefox or Mozilla.

Currently it is
<table width="692" height="499" border="1" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" "bordercolor="#ADE4F0">

Could someone please tell me to code I would use to make this work cross platform?

Spangex, do you use css? If yes, the format your border with this

table {border: 1px solid #ADE4f0}

Hope this works for you.
