View Full Version : HTML Table (with styles) Issue. Force row to size of content?

See this page for example: http://iowanet.net/help/htmltable.asp

I want the purple section (td) to push the empty space of the blue section (td) up. Currently, the blue and purple sections are splitting the height in half. The blue section needs to be dynamic, so I cannot force the height. If I do set height:10px in the blue td, then firefox removes the empty space and forces the purple section up, however, it does not do this in Internet Explorer.

Any suggestions? Note that I cannot switch to pure CSS as I am attempting to modify 3rd-party code with additional functionality.

Thanks in advance,

TD elements in IE are problematic in a number of ways. In my opinion, this is probably one of those instances. Wish I could tell you something more encouragaing!
