    Exclamation Since when did padding not work on IE?

    How come this code for a table of mine works for Firefox but not the latest version of IE?

    Code:
    <table width="676"  border="0" style="padding-top:8px; padding-left:10%;">
    Thanks!

    Because IE doesn't read padding and margin properly. its probably the 10% thing throwing IE off.

    In my experience tables do wierd things is general in IE! (the phrase "riddled with bugs" springs to mind!). Especially negative padding - I've seen tables go absolutely cuckoo in IE with negative padding - but display fine in Mozilla! I tend not to use tables any more ... you can do neat table-like things with divs and the float:left property

    Let's see the code or a link. It could be a few things.
