    Hi,

    I recently designed and launched a new HTML website and have run into a layout issue with IE9. When I created the site and viewed it using Firefox 3.6, IE8, Chrome, and Safari, it looked fine. When I upgraded to IE9 Beta I saw that the table layout suffers from vertical spaces between cells (quite drastic ones). I don't know if this is an issue with my HTML coding, IE9, or both, but I need to fix it fast before IE9 emerges from Beta.

    Here's the site: www.northshoresmile.com

    Any advice or ideas would be very welcome.

    Thanks,

    Glen

    Basically, I would ask why on earth you are using tables?
    This page will work very well if you put your layout in divs, and use CSS to position everything.

    I guess the best answer is that I know how to use tables but I don't know how to use divs. Can you point me in the direction of a good online resource?

    Also, does anyone know why this table layout is working fine in all other browsers than IE9? Are there any solutions to make it work in IE9 rather than completely rebuilding the site using divs?

    Tables for anything except tabular data are pretty much frowned upon now. It may take you a bit of time to learn how to construct your pages with divs and CSS but I think you will find it well worth it, they are much more flexible and it's generally easier to make them cross-browser compatible.

    Here are a couple of links to get you started..

    I don't use tables much myself, and I'm sorry but I haven't got a clue how to fix your problem in IE, other than reworking the page without tables.

    Good luck,

    Thanks for the CSS layout resources. I've figured out how to fix the issue I was having with IE9: with the use of nested tables (I know, tables are evil, but in this case they turned out to be the solution as well as the problem).

    I've resolved to abandon tables and embrace CSS for layouts with my next website.
