I have set up a web page and am in the process of testing it on several browsers. It works fine on Netscape 3.0, netscpae communicator, and IE 3. However on ie4 one of the images has become off set to the left, unlike on the other browsers, where it should be. The image itself is in a cell,  but the cell has been set up the same as all the others !

Any ideas

You are not alone. It's very difficult to make a pretty HTML page which works on all browsers. What you need is to use common features, which actually behaves the same way on all implementations of browsers (you want to support!).

So, test your pages on the browsers you want to support, before actually releasing the pages.

I have a set of pages, at http://www.cybercity.dk/users/ccc5356, and they have such a nice behavior when I use IE4, and such a bad behavior when running Netscape's browsers. The nice thing is the way the border images can be stretched in IE4 interpretation of HTML tables and cells. What is HEIGHT=100%? Obviously, Netscape doesn't have a unique answer to this, and neither has the developers of HTML. As, I told you: "You are not alone."

The code is

<td width="103" height="1" valign="bottom" align="right" bgcolor="#000080"><img src="../graphics/Frontpage/kingalf1.gif" width="238" height="88" alt="kingalf1.gif (2521 bytes)"></td>

You have made the cell too small (compared to the cell with kingalf2.gif).

Your kingalf1.gif cell:

    <td width="103" height="1" valign="bottom" align="right" bgcolor="#000080"><img src="../graphics/Frontpage/kingalf1.gif" width="238" height="88" alt="kingalf1.gif (2521 bytes)"></td>

The correct cell should be (notice the 502 has changed from 103):

    <td width="502" height="1" valign="bottom" align="right" bgcolor="#000080"><img src="../graphics/Frontpage/kingalf1.gif" width="238" height="88" alt="kingalf1.gif (2521 bytes)"></td>

I hope this is better.
