no luck with that either, actually i had already tried that before. i have the same problem with certain other elements like <select> and <textarea>. it only works when i actually specify the height and width but not in percentage.

the code:

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" height="17.5%" width="100%">
          <td style="width:100%;height:100%;"><img src="images/general/header_login.jpg" style="width:100%;height:100%;" border=0></td>

You can't use percentages on images, I doubt fractional percentages will work, and your syntax is wrong.

Don't blame the browser if you write bad code. ;-) You don't need height on the table tag, you've got it on the cells.

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%">
         <td width="100%" height="100%"><img src="images/general/header_login.jpg" border=0></td>

there is a difference in how browser interpret % on images.

some browsers take it to mean that it should be a percentage of the browser window.  100% would be as wide as the whole browser.  

some browsers take it to mean a percentage of the full image width.  100% would be normal size, 50% would be half the size of the original image width.

i'm assuming by your problem NS6 is probably one of the latter, not the former, in which case, you will have to use some javascript to dynamically check the window.availWidth and then dynamically write out the code for the image size.
