View Full Version : IE doubles the cellpadding on website

02-13-2011, 03:14 PM
I am currently creating a website and have a few tables being used. For these tables I have set the cellpadding and it all works perfectly in Firefox, Chrome etc but when using Internet Explorer it doubles the cellpadding, therefore ruining the layout.

Is there a way to stop this or has anyone had the same problems and found a way around it?

Any help or suggestions are much appreciated...

Any help or suggestions are much appreciated... Can we have a link to your page?

here is a link to the site... http://co-project.lboro.ac.uk/users/cops3/FYP/

If you compare IE to Chrome you will see the difference in the cellpadding for the main content of the page which is currently set to 10

*{margin:0;padding:0} into your CSS and check again.

PS: Don't you know why using tables for layout is very bad (http://www.hotdesign.com/seybold/)? I'd recommend you to use something like http://bonrouge.com/2c-hf-fluid%28r%29.php
