I have a cgi that writes out a centered table. This same html code looks find in netscape but displays badly in IE.  
Here's the html code:

<CENTER><TABLE CELLSPACING=10 ><tr>
<h3>Current Search Sentence: </h3>
<p><i>credit union.</i></p>
<h3> Total number of retrievals: 4</h3>
</table>


in Netscape I get:
             Current Search Sentence:

                credit union.
 
          Total number of retrievals: 2


In IE 4 I get:

             Current
             Search
             Sentence:
             credit
             union.

             Total
             number
             of
             retrievals:
             4
 


Does anyone know why this difference and how to get rid of it?

Thank you.

It seems that the 'WIDTH=' default-value
is
very
small,
resulting
in
very
narrow
columns
in
one
browser,
as opposed to the other browser.

So, specify a 'WIDTH' for the <TABLE>.
