View Full Version : weird table issues

07-20-2002, 04:56 AM
I'm trying to build a table around the table's background image. If someone could tell me why the second row of the table extends so far down I'd be eternally grateful. The first row is just a 4 pixel spacer, the second had all of the content, and the third is all the way at the bottom. There is no content forcing the second row to be so tall... check it out

There's this 505px spacer:

<table width="760" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="1" align="CENTER" class="background">
<td colspan="4"><img src="images/white1.gif" alt="" width="1" height="4" border="0"></td>
<td width="1" rowspan="2"><img src="images/white1.gif" alt="" width="1" height="505" border="0"></td>

I understand that there is a spacer of 505 but there is also a rowspan of 2. If you look I turned the border on for the 505 pixel spacer... it extends past the point that the second row begins so this can't be the cause of the middle row being extended.

Never mind, I had a brain fart... I was telling the table how high to be without defining how high I wanted each row. Once I defined the height of the bottom row it noved itself up within the table. thanks

Have you checked the page in NS?

I checked with 4.75 (or whatever 4... is) and no background image, this is due to 4... ignoring css.

Good luck with the project.
