    Hi
    I'm quite new to the web development world and so far I have been using Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 nearly exclusively. The program is easy enough to use, however it seems quite difficult to get my work to display correctly in Internet Explorer 7.
    I have overcome my problems with one site by adjusting the way that the tables were laid out. However on this new site I have had no luck.
    Part of the site can be viewed here.

    Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello Again.
    I thought I'd also like to add that the site does display exactly as I want it to in both Opera and Mozilla.
    I have not had a chance to look at it in any other browsers.
    I have also read a lot of similar posts, but most of the time the display problems seem to be different to mine and I end up just getting confused.

    Again any help would be greatly appreciated!

    i would switch to using divs and get away from tables, you will have much more controls with divs and CSS, especially when you use absolute positioning with a relatively positioned container. Your layout will appear exactly as you define it.

    I haven't looked at your html, but if you have any empty divs (with no text content or other elements inside them). IE messes up the height with empty divs.
    Code:
    <div></div>
    Put an empty comment tag inside it.
    Code:
    <div><!-- --></div>
    I also found some other things that may help you, but it didn't fix my problem

    Hi Itsumishi, can you describe more specific your problem?

    I tested in IE 7 and despite some small height issues with some tables in the site, I couldn't notice any serious damage in the layout.

    Anyway, as dsmflash said, it's infinite better to switch to the divs/css combination as soon as possible to avoid problems and optimize your maintenance.
