I am hiding/showing table rows based on the radio button clicked by the user. Everything works fine, except in one particular case, when the display for one of the rows gets distorted.
And the problem only appears in Firefox (tested on 1.5.* and 2 beta), and at least not on the latest versions of IE, Opera and Konqueror (ver. 3.4.2).
The following code is the most I could simplify my original code to, I tried to make the row names as explanatory as possible. Click the radio box named 'R2,3,5 (Not OK)' to see the buggy behaviour.
I observed a couple of peculiar things -
1. On resizing the browser a fraction, the display is corrected. 2. If a row is made visible after the problematic row, the display stays ok. (Click on R5,6 (OK) to see this)
So, I am inclined to believe that this might be a bug in page rendering by the browser. I would, of course, be happy to be proven wrong
For now, my work around is to add another row with the max no. of columns used and set its visibility to 'hidden', and that solution is working fine. I would love to hear of a better suggestion though.
