Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..
Well that got me closer to the goal but with a new side affect, now the middle cell had disapeared, the code all looks correct I specified the middle cell to be 13 pixels but it is not showing at all..
HTML 4.0 standards require the size attribute to have it's measurement with the number, therefore 100px is correct, and 100 would no longer be valid...
Here is what you should have:.
<td background="rustsbar.gif" height="13" width="144">&nbsp;</td>.
<td background="rustcorner.gif" width="13">&nbsp;</td>.
You need the &nbsp; command in each td that you have empty or else the 100% width will not show that td...
That makes sense about needing the in there however as my luck would have it it didn't work, am I just doing my normal and just overlooking something very simple? I have probably built 100 tables and I don't have this much trouble, and on this simple of a table to boot...
I just tried checking your iPage site and the template folder no longer exists, may I ask where you moved it to?..
Sorry about that, when I uploaded the file I forgot to rename it to index.html and I have turned off directory browsing on my server, so I have fixed it now it is back at.
<td background="rustver.gif" height="144" width="144"> </td>.
<td background="rustver.gif" width="13"> </td>.
<td background="rustver.gif" width="*" style="width:100%;"> </td>.
I believe that if you use 100% as the cell width in the last cell, your other cells will be crunched down as small as the content will allow, regardless of if you set the width to a fixed size. Since you other cells have no content, they will crunch down pretty small..
Remove the width="*" style="width:100%;" from the one cell and see if your table displays like you want it to. If not, wait for more suggestions...
Oh yeah try this code:.
<td background="rustsbar.gif" height="13px" width="144px" nowrap="nowrap">&nbsp;</td>.
<td background="rustcorner.gif" width="13px" nowrap="nowrap">&nbsp;</td>.
<td background="vergrad.gif" width="*" style="width:100%;">&nbsp;</td>.
Ok why are you using a style in the cell?.
<td background="vergrad.gif" width="100%">&nbsp;</td>.
It doesn't matter if the cell is 100% or not, it is empty and will be real small. and IE knows the width="100% as does NS (all versions).
So setting a cell with nothing in it to 100% is not getting you any where. it will only be 2px wide, 5-10px with &nbsp;..
When using tables use spacer gifs (blank transparent gifs) to force the table the correct size no matter what the tables set 2..
