I'm working on a web page and I'm having trouble with table height. I just updated to IE8, and noticed that my tables seem to have a minimum height of 60 pixels. I have a horizontal menu bar with table properties defined in css. I had it at 50 pixels high, I even experimented with smaller heights with no trouble controlling the height in IE7. I first thought it had something to do with the css, but then I noticed that another table, this one just straight html with no frills, also increased to 60px high when I updated to IE8.
I found that I could increase the height as much as I want, but can't reduce it below 60px. I'm not sure how to fix this other than settling for 60px high tables, or passing out leaflets convincing people not to update to IE8.
I would include code, but it's basic: table, tr, td, etc. I am using php with an Apache server. I can't imagine that I would have to alter my configurations just to have a plain html table at less than 60px. Any suggestions?
