    Hi !

    I have two questions, a little background to what Iam trying to do. I created a curved-edge box using tables. Its a 3x3 table with the following:
    -- top left cell : curved image
    -- top middle cell: image (used as background)
    -- top right cell : curved image
    -- middle left cell : image (used as background)
    -- center cell: no image (background color differnt from page background color)
    -- midlle right cell : image (used as background)
    -- bottom left cell : curved image
    -- bottom middle cell: image (used as background)
    -- bottom right cell : curved image

    1. Now the table looks good in IE but in firefox and opera it breaks, the problem is that I don't see the background color I want for the center cell and I see the background color of the page instead.

    2. Also is there a way to set the heights equal for cells in a row. The problem I get is that when one column is longer it drags the entire row down. Is there a way to avoid this.

    Any help would be appreciated !!!

    Could not comment on (1) without seeing the code - what are you using to set the background, css?

    Regarding (2) that is how tables work. A row will be of a particular height, not the cells within. If you want differences in cell heights then you need to either use the "rowspan" tag (ie. have one cell which spans two rows) or have more than one table. Alternatively, you could look at other ways to layout the content, such as css div-based design or a hybrid of the two (fixed sized div within a table cell).

    |
    images [folder]
    |
    styles.css

    index [folder]
    |
    area194_index.html
    images [folder]
    |
    styles_01.css
    bottomleft_image.gif
    bottomright_image.gif
    midbottom_image.gif
    midleft_image.gif
    midright_image.gif
    midtop_image.gif
    topleft_image.gif
    topright_image.gif

    Any help on this would be great thanks for the earlier tip but I really need help on this since I've been stuck for a while, cannot find anything on google abt this
