I have a div within a table cell that is floated left and has a margin-right of 15px to offset the text that flows around it. Depending on the page, the div might contain a single image, image & text, or multiple images, etc. Both the HTML and CSS validate and it works admirably - even in Netscape 4.7
The fly in the ointment is Opera 7. As the page loads there is a noticable "jump", I presume as the margin is applied. (similar movement occurs in IE if no width is assigned the div) The page has a colored sidebar on the right and after loading a white space approximately the height of the div is visible there and disappears when the page is scrolled.
I've tried padding instead of margin and specifying width to no avail. This isn't fatal and I probably account for most of the site's Opera traffic, but it's one of those things I keep going back to! Is it possible that it's related to the speed or order of Opera's rendering?
So, I think the answer is to set sizes on whatever is shifting around. I could be wrong though ;0
