Blank Table cells in Netscape

I have a table with a blank column on the left hand side of width=80.

It acts a border so text (in column two) does not obstruct the background image running down the Left hand side.

This works in IE4 but in Netscape 4 it appears to ignore the width tag of the cell.

Can I force Netscape to have a blank column/cell of a certain width with nothing in it?

Make a transparent gif image of 1x1 pixels (called pixel.gif)

<td><img src="pixel.gif" width="whatyouwant" height="1" border="0"></td>

will force this cell (column) to have minimally the width that you indicated.

Another way is to use multiple &nbsp; to achieve the same effect, without having the to load a picture multiple times.
