    hey,

    I'm very new to web design, and have completed my first website. It looks perfect in Safari, but I am having some strange spacing issues in IE and Firefox. All of the images on the right should be equally spaced apart, but the space between the middle and last images is HUGE.

    Like I said, it looks fine in safari, so i don't know if it's a code thing, or how to fix it. I did make a .class for each image cell with 5 pix of padding on the bottom. All of the other pages look good, and the layout is pretty much the same on all the pages, so I don't know why these two pages in particular would mess up, and not the others. I validated the code, and there were no issues.

    Any suggestions? I've heard that IE and Firefox are the most finiky, but they are also very popular.

    the website is at chefcabbit.tripod.com

    thanks so much.

    i changed the height and got close to what you want im sure but im doing it from my laptop so i dont have the actual images. just adjust the height as shown below. im a cook by trade so this was fun.


    <tr>
    <td width="10" height="150">&nbsp;</td>
    <td width="123" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" class="imageR"><img src="images_web/hp_muffins.jpg" alt="muffins" width="114" height="89" /></td>
    <td width="12">&nbsp;</td>
    </tr>

    while($get_it !== true){ continue; }

    well, how do you like that! that does seem to work much better-- I can totally live with this look! Is there a reason that the white space is so wonky on FF and IE and just on those images?
    Thanks so much!!!!!!! yippeee

    they all render different margins on elements unless declared otherwise and because it wasnt being told otherwise by css it did what it wanted, this is the reason tables are seldom used for layout anymore. glad i could help though.

    Thank you again for your help, but I was intrigued by your last statement : this is the reason tables are seldom used for layout anymore. If tables are no longer used, what is used instead?
