View Full Version : <col> in FF

It seems that FireFox does not listen to the width attribute of the <col> tag. Does anyone know why this is, or a way around it?

Firefox does does support the width attribute of the col element. Perhaps you can provide more complete information such as the relevant code, what exactly Firefox is doing different, and the version number of the browser?

You shouldn’t be using the width attribute on table elements in the first place though, unless, perhaps, you are using proportional widths, which I doubt. Use the CSS width property instead; a live example (http://www.jsgp.us/demos/CF115253.html) demonstrates that Firefox supports its use on the col element.

And, by the way, it’s Firefox; only the first character is capitalized.
