Hi all, I have just been asked to apply some some HTML design to a prebuilt application where the developers are EXTREMELY protective of their code. Each page involves several forms which they have placed willy-nilly amongst table rows. ie: <form action=blah> <tr><td>Cell stuff here with form elements</td></tr> <tr><td>Another cell here with more elements </form> </td></tr> <form2 action=blech> etc... Now my belief has always been that forms and tables don't mix well. Either the entire form should be within a table cell or it should span the entire table. Unfortunately the developers are very insistent that I do not touch their code and only modify the colors of the cells.... sigh.... Does anyone know of any documentation/websites to back up my claim that their structure is not going to stand up well across browsers and multiple OS once it goes into production? Or am I just being an old-fashioned crank? Thanks for any input. Kat
