Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This problem is due to the different interpretation of NS and IE of pixels. So the best solution to have the same effect on both NS and IE is to use percentages. So in your code change the width of the first table cell from 180 to 30% :

<table width=600 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 border=0>
<tr><td width="30%">&nbsp;</td>
<td>

This'll have the same effect and works on both browsers, and this is how it's mainly done.

The easyest way with netscape is to set the width of BOTH cells... This solves both problems, give the code below a try...

<table width=600 cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 border=0>
<tr>
<td width=132>&nbsp;</td>
<td width=468>

<P>Your test here...</P>
(or your code for the cell bordered cell)

</td>
</tr>
</table>

JavaBloggs >> I see you're a newbie here, so let me explain something : it's more likely to post this as a comment instead of an answer. This way you won't be locking the question and let other comments be evaluated too. This it's more fair to other experts and clearer for the questioner ok? Thanks.

Thanks JavaBloggs.. everything looks fine now.

Your solution also worked oubelkas, but JavaBloggs' answer is for me a bit easier.

Thanks again.

No harm done, Paul, just most of the time people lock the questions on purpose which maybe unfair to other 'experts'. I could also post my comment as an answer, and this would go to the Locked Questions sections where other experts mostly don't comment anymore, because the Q is already locked. This could be in disadvantage for the Questioner....ok?

Joseph

PS : Rus, no thanks, but was my comment that hard then? ;/
