View Full Version : content doesnt align in table in IE 6

07-12-2008, 10:20 AM

I have a simple table object to form the layout of my page. In the second column on the right hand side nothing appears aligned to center in IE6 - although it is fine in firefox and appears fine in dreamweaver!

the site is www.boyakasha.co.uk and the code is below

<td width="212" valign="top" bgcolor="#36393D"><p align="center" class="basic"><strong>We've had a redesign! Give us your feedback...</strong><a href="javascript:HaloScan('redesign');" target="_self">
<script type="text/javascript">postCount('redesign');</script></a></p>
<table id="DisplayVote947625" width="152" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#36393D">
<td width="144"><div align="center" class="basic"><b><font style="font-family: verdana; font-weight: bold">Boyakasha.co.uk
vote </font></b></div></td>
<td bgcolor="#36393D"><center>
<span class="basic" style="font-size: 8.9pt"> <font style="font-family: verdana">Is it fair for Sacha Baron Cohen to be sued by the upset people in the Borat film?</font></span>
<table border="0" width="100%">
<td align="center" valign="top"><div style="margin-bottom: 10px">
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
function VoteWindow() {
window.open(url,"pollwindow", options);
// -->
<select name="ballot" size="1" class="style110">
<option value="0">Yes, Borat should be execute for this</option>
<option value="1">No, they should kiss Borat's chram!</option>
<option value="2">A few people should sue, not all.</option>
<option value="3">I don't know, I like sex, its niiiice!</option>
<div align="right"><small><a href="http://vote.sparklit.com/popup_poll/947625" target="pollwindow" class="basic" style="font-family: verdana; color: #E2B62E; text-decoration: underline" onclick="VoteWindow()">Current Results</a> </small></div></td>
<td><div align="right">
<input type="submit" style="background-color: #36393D ; border: 1px solid #999999; color: #999999; font-family: verdana; font-weight: bold; cursor: hand" value="Submit Vote" name="submit" />
<p align="center"><a href="javascript:popUpvote('pages/voteresults.htm')" class="basic"><strong>Past
vote results? Click here</strong></a></p><span class="inverse">
<p align="center" class="basic"><a href="#" class="inverse"><strong>FREE 3G IPHONE!</strong></a><img src="pics/admin pics/iphone.png" alt="Free iPhone" width="162" height="255" /><br />
<strong><a href="#" class="inverse">Free iPhone sponsored by boyakasha.co.uk</a></strong>
<p align="center" class="basic">&nbsp;</p>
<div align="center">
<script type="text/javascript"><!--
google_ad_client = "pub-3630363695357992";
/* Boyakasha main */
google_ad_slot = "9400113459";
google_ad_width = 160;
google_ad_height = 600;
<script type="text/javascript"
<p align="center" class="basic">&nbsp;</p>
<p align="center" class="basic"><a href="http://www.spreadfirefox.com/node&amp;id=0&amp;t=318"><img border="0" alt="Firefox 3" title="Firefox 3" src="http://sfx-images.mozilla.org/affiliates/Buttons/firefox3/FF3o80x15_square.gif"/></a></a><br />
Boyakasha.co.uk is best viewed with firefox. It's free... and mashes up Internet Explorer! </p>
<p align="center" class="basic">&nbsp;</p></td>
