Table probs in netscape :)

Hi, I've got a problem displaying a table in netscape (IE does it, thanks to the many things, not conform the html lang) ... here is the code :

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="750">
        <td width="151" bgcolor="#000080"><img src="images/logo.gif" width="151" height="100"></td>
        <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Testing</td>
        <td width="41" bgcolor="#000080"><img src="images/L.gif" width="41" height="100"></td>
        <td width="82" bgcolor="#000080"><img src="images/R.gif" width="82" height="100"></td>
    <tr><td colspan="4">Dit is een testje<BR>blah blah blah</td></tr>

It should show a centered table of 750 width, with 4 cells :
- In the first comes the logo, and nothing else, no space around it nothing.
- In the second, whose width should be the remainder of the table (-cell 3 and 4), the text should be displayed.
- The tirth cell contains the L.gif image
- The fourth cell contains the R.gif image

The problem is : in netscape the images ARE NOT displayed right next to each other on the richt hand of the table, also the cell around the logo.gif image doesn't fit the images exactly, ...
In short, take a look at it using netscape 3 or so earlier ... netscape under linux works also fine to discover the bugs :) ...

How about writing: <td width="476" bgcolor="#FFFFFF#>Testing</td> ?

<td width="99%" bgcolor="#FFFFFF#>Testing</td>

Madshi's answer is probably more correct but mine will give a low-maintenance solution. i.e. if you resize the images the "Testing" will still automatically expand to fill any remaining space.

Put the code in this way, and Netscape will read it fine. Take out the <center></center> tag.

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="750"
border="0" align="center">
        <td width="151" bgcolor="#000080"><img
        src="images/logo.gif" width="151" height="100"></td>
        <td align="center" width="100%" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Testing</td>
        <td align="center" width="41" bgcolor="#000080"><img
        src="images/L.gif" width="151" height="100"></td>
        <td align="center" width="82" bgcolor="#000080"><img
        src="images/R.gif" width="151" height="100"></td>
        <td colspan="4">Dit is een testje<br>
        blah blah blah</td>

Well, it didn't work like this, but it came close enough for me to get it to work ...

Sorry, but when I answered the question, there were no other responses in the history. Yours showed up when the screen refreshed. However, if you look at my code, I changed more than one frame.

That is rather hard to believe seeing as my answer was submitted at 6:17 and yours at 7:30! You kept the question on the screen for more than an hour until you answered it?

I deliberately did not "answer" the question seeing as Madshi had already given a valid answer at 4:50 and I wanted to leave it to tofke to decide which answer to accept or both.
