Hi, Please can anyone help with the formatting of tables. I use tables both for the classic use of storing data in a table format and also for page layout. I have been using spacers (transparent gifs) to set the width and height of my rows and columns. I was wondering whether alternative ways such as using the width and height attributes of <tr> and <td> using a specified value are bad and not to be used. Is it also not correct practice to use percentages to specify the widths? Please help Y
hi, you can specify a cells width/height by using this attributes for table td/th-tags. you can use absolute and relative values here. it's syntactical correct html! but if you have to layout a html-page it's probably better to use blind gifs. some browsers will crush your table, even though you added width- or height-paramters within your td-tag. christoph
