Ok, I'm just trying to understand the principals of creating a full stretched out page table, so here is my code:



<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN">
<html>
<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="main.css" />
<title>deny ignorance with grace</title>
</head>
<body>
<table border="1">
<tr>
<td>hi</td>
<td height="100px">hi</td>
<td>hi</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td width="20%">hi</td>
<td>hi</td>
<td width="20%">hi</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>


And this is the code in the CSS:



body {
margin: 0;
margin-left: 0;
margin-right: 0;
margin-bottom: 0;
margin-top: 0;
font-size: 12px
}

.indented {
padding-left: 5pt;
padding-right: 5pt;
}

table {
border-collapse: collapse;
width: 100%;
height: 100%
}

html,body {
height: 100%
}


Now the problem here is that it turns out the way I want in firebird, but when viewed in IE, it's upside down. This is obviously gonna be a compatibility issue for visitors if I make it into a site. Are there any xhtml wiz's who can assist me with the principal of having a full stretched table, if I'm doing it all wrong that is.

Thanks a bunch,

Ok new question, how can you post html code without it going bonkers?

You have to use special code"cryptic nonsense"
It's actually a real pain on bulletin boards. I thought the [ source ] [ /source ] tags would do it but evidently not.

use "&_lt;" for the '' (remove underscores)
<A href="Mylinktosomewhere.com">This is a link</A>

EDIT: If you mean to actually use HTML vs. displaying it, I wouldn't try it. These pages are php generated, which means your code will probably get mangled when the page is generated.

If you read this...forget it...somethign is screwy. the CODE and /CODE BBCode is supposed to preserve formatting, but doesnt seem to be working for some reason.

Works on other boards.....

It's not actually upside down. Change the text in the table so it's different for each row and you'll see. Still it is odd that I won't display correctly in IE. I think that Mozilla displayed it correctly. I messed around with it a bit, but I'm not an expert with CSS. Hopefully someone else can help you out more.

I had to tweak the code a bit. There was a extra column on the top row but not on the bottom. Also took out an extra TD tag you had in there.

It worked just fine in Firefox and IE.

I color coded and labeled the boxes. See it here while you can.
I won't keep it forever.


Edit: Had a minor tweak to make so check it again if need be.
