Achieving same effect in netscape

View the following URL in IE and NS:

http://domaindlx.com/hoard/images/header.html

In IE it renders as intended ( ie. nested snug at the top of the browser and on both left and right as well as having the one cell vary in size depending on the window/screen size ). How do I make this happen the same way in netscape?

Thanks
Jerry

Page margins are dealt with differently on IE and NN

Try changing your body line as follows

<body bgcolor="#000000" onLoad="MM_preloadImages('header_r2_c4_f2.gif');" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0">

Let me know if this helps

daveamour is right. About the right spacing is cause netscape will reserver space for the scroll bars.

if you want to be forwards compliant you'd also like to remove margins through CSS.  all you need is to add the following attribute to BODY:

  style="margin:0;"

Ok this is great... it cleared up the margin issue. The only problem is that there is still the one varied size cell that is specified as width=100% and has a backgroun image. That cell is not showing up in netscape. I tried setting the tr background to the image, the table background to the image and the td background to the image and it is not working in netscape.

I tested this a bit at home, and the background image won't be shown if you define a width for the table cell.  remove width and the image is suddenly there.  haven't been able to find a workaround though.

hmm... myself neither.

Is there a way I can give maybe a portion of the points for this question since half of it has been solved?
