hey guys and gals,

glad to be here. a slap on the head for me for why i didn't join this forum earlier. lol

I know it's against bad practice to use tables but i was just wondering if someone could have a quick look at the code for this page for me?


It looks perfect in Firefox but in IE it looks really awkward. I can't figure this one out at all.

Thanks for your help all.

Hello hawarkarem,
I don't mean to sound harsh but it never really stood a chance:
Result: Failed validation, 91 errors (http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http://digitalthoughts.co.uk/Flex/homepage/contactus.html)

Don't let that scare you off though - if you want help recoding it, your in the right place!

Oh dear...

lol I better go revise them and then maybe come back.

Thanks Excavator.

You are using the wrong doctype. Try using an HTML Strict doctype. If you don't know what a doctype is then you need to do some more html tutorials.

[...] how would one align a <div> to the top inside a table cell?

A rule of thumb: Search before asking. Such questions have been asked a million times.
By the way: if you would do it with CSS it would be td {vertical-align: top;}
