Im having a couple of problems on two pages Im developing.  http://www.chilcote.com/lti/solutions/ seems to fit into IE4 under 640x480 resolution, but not under Nav4 at the same resolution.  

The other problem that is cropping up has to do with the height=100% that I want to use.   Under IE4 or Nav4 please view http://www.chilcote.com/lti/.  The problem should be obvious.

I looked at both pages (with NN4.5) and both seem fine. Could you be more specific about what you are tying to achieve or what the problem is?

Arg.   Slight mistake on my part.   The "Cant fit into 640x480" problem is happening with IE4.x.    The 100% height problem is happening under resolutions higher than 640x480.

Hopefully that clearifies things.

First of all the sizing problem with the width:
take out the width=5% from the menu bar table.

I presume that this is the problem you mention because height=100% does not appear in the source only width=100%.

As for the background image problem in NS3. NS3 does not support background images to tables. Therefore you should at least use a matching bgcolor in the cells where you have a background image.

The background image issue is already being handled.

Removing the 5% doesnt solve the problem.   Im unable to post the changed copy of the site....but as it stands, with the 5% removed, the "Solutions" subpage still wont fit into IE4.x, but seems to fit within Nav4.x.   Any other thoughts?

The height=100% issue has been taken care of.   If you can help me solve the "fitting into 640x480" problem, Id definitely appreciate it.

OK here we go again.

When I answered you this morning that was after looking at the /lti/ page. Now I looked at the home page and I found that by removing the width=5% and in addition the width=1% five lines lower, you solve all the problems.

Here is the offending section:

.

  <tr>
    <td width="5%" bgcolor="#008080" background="a_spacer.gif"><font color="#52A5AD">.</font></td>
    <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF" background="a_bak1.gif" valign="top" align="left"><img
    src="images/corner.gif" width="17" height="15" alt="corner.gif (847 bytes)"></td>
  </tr>
  <tr align="left" valign="top">
    <td align="left" valign="top" colspan="1" rowspan="2" background="a_spacer.gif" width="1%"
    bgcolor="#008080" height="100%"><div align="left"><table border="0" cellpadding="0"
    cellspacing="0">

.

and here is the fxed version:
.

  <tr>
    <td bgcolor="#008080" background="a_spacer.gif"><font color="#52A5AD">.</font></td>
    <td bgcolor="#FFFFFF" background="a_bak1.gif" valign="top" align="left"><img
    src="images/corner.gif" width="17" height="15" alt="corner.gif (847 bytes)"></td>
  </tr>
  <tr align="left" valign="top">
    <td align="left" valign="top" colspan="1" rowspan="2" background="a_spacer.gif"
    bgcolor="#008080" height="100%"><div align="left"><table border="0" cellpadding="0"
    cellspacing="0">

.

'preciate it.   It was the remaining 1% which was causing the problems.

On something of a sidenote, Ive heard of a website which allows you to enter a URL, and it spits back screenshots of the website at that URL from various browsers/OSs.   If anyone happens to know anything about this, please email me at adam@chilcote.com.  Thanks.
