I use Netscape Composer 4.5 for website development. In creating tables, there appears to be a problem in using the Span Columns feature. Example: I create a table of 5 rows and 3 columns. To have the top cell span the 3 columns, I put the cursor in the top left cell, do a "right mouse" and then "table properties" select the "cell" tab, and enter "Cell Spans 1 row and 3 columns" and hit OK. One would expect the top cell to span 3 cols, which it does ... sort of ... but, it pushes the 2 other columns of row 1 to the right (instead of deleting them), has white space under those new columns, and thus effectively looks like 5 columns, which is not what is desired.
Does anyone know if this is a bug in Netscape Composer? Or if there is a way around this problem? ...perhaps some other variable which I missed? Thanks.
