    I'm curious as to why fonts in tables on some sites get screwed up in IE. For instance; the fonts on text inside the tables here get screwed up in IE, but work fine in Firefox. I can't see anything particularly wrong in the HTML or the accompanying CSS, so what's the deal? And how can you get around problems like this?

    Well, Microsoft likes to be different, so it designed its browser to be different from the standards set by W3C. But Microsoft failed to realize that being different isn't always better.

    On a side note, I don't see anything wrong with the page in IE. Perhaps I'm not being observant enough, but could you point out what's screwed up about the fonts in IE? They look the same as in Firefox to me.

    I'm thinking the original post is an attempt at getting link-clicks to advertiser's URL.

    That's not allowed in this forum (read the rules regarding URL links).

    Either give us an example of your own by the end of today,
    or this post will be deleted.

    Thanks,

    Well, I am associated with that site, but it wasn't an attempt at getting clicks; it was a genuine question on something that bugs me. If I was looking to be a link whore, I'd be posting something about how this is the best designed site ever, not how there are issues with the design ;-). But if it's contrary to policy, then go ahead and delete the post.

    As long as you replied ... you're OK.

    There has been many creative link farm authors on here.

    I don't see any differences between FF and IE either.
    Maybe it's a font you don't have on your PC?

    I'm sure there have: I certainly didn't mean to appear to be one of them.

    As to the font problem: it seems to be certain browsers only. I'll grab some screenshots and post them in a bit.

    I don't see the difference either. But, I do know the default values for HTML elements vary by browser, so if you do not specify a font-size in pixels or em, you never know what you'll get across browsers.

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.
