Why will IE not render properly?

Hi everyone,

I am having trouble with my website with IE, it will not render my table correctly, but Firefox does.

I was going to post my code here, but I think it would be easier to show you.

my webpage I am having trouble with is: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/j.kelly627/gallery.html

Basically I have a table with pics and text, but IE does not show the pics, which are also links to the pics in a bigger resolution.
I just resized the image in html, but not resize the image, would I have to resize the images as well for IE to show it correctly, I think the code is fine.

could someone tell me what has happened?

Any input would be helpful.

thanks

Davy

Davy,
I think it will work in both browsers if you use pixel based sizes, rather than percentages.

You really should consider making smaller copies of the images. If you just resize in HTML, the user's browser needs to download the whole image. But for such as small picture, that level of resolution is unneeded.

Thanks very much for answering.

I will try to make smaller pics, I think that would probably be best.

The problem here is, that you use percentage for image height, but do not set a height for table, row or td.
So, from IE point of view you saying "The height of the image is 80% of nothing".
If you put something like height=500 into your table tag definition, all images will show up.
