Can anyone tell me why the Departments table has a thicker line on the right side when viewed in NS 4.7?

Try replacing the last row of that table with:

  <TR>
    <TD bgcolor="#990000" height="1">
    <IMG border="0" src="../images/1pixtransparent.gif" width="1" height="1"></TD>
    <TD colspan="3" bgcolor="#990000" height="1">
    <IMG border="0" src="../images/1pixtransparent.gif" width="158" height="1"></TD>
    <TD bgcolor="#990000" height="1">
    <IMG border="0" src="../images/1pixtransparent.gif" width="1" height="1"></TD>
  </TR>

Try fixing your code first..

You have 2 sets of head tags, 2 body tags (one with incorrect syntax), a table between the 2 body tags, a link to a stylesheet and font tags scattered all over, as well as styles in your P tags, which will override the stylesheet you've linked to.

You've got spacer gifs, but you're leaving them 1x1 and setting the width/height in the TD, which practically defeats the purpose of them.

You have an entire blank table at the bottom, and then this...
<OV version=4.26> <OT time=1.375 seconds> <TT time=2.140625 seconds>
after the closing body tag. Why? If it's a comment, make it a comment.

Corey is right, but you've got a lot more work to do if you want to be sure this is going to display correctly.

BTW, you've spelled Helvetica wrong every place you've used it. Might as well just take it out. No computer has a font called 'Helvitica' ;-)

Thanks Coryit, I'll give that a try and let you know.

Webwoman,

I appreciate the advice but maybe you should think before you are so completely critical:

1. This is in development and the code is being tweaked, I knew about most of the items you mentioned but was interested in this problem only.  The only one I missed was the spelling error - thanks!
2. If you looked at the URL and recognized it as a Miva site, you would know that much of the code is generated by the shopping cart system, including the tags at the bottom of the document.
3. If you paid attention to the name of the spacer gif you may have noticed that is a transparent 1x1 gif to make Netscape display the narrow table cells properly.
4. The in-line styles are intentional, again to deal with Miva Merchant quirks.
5. The multiple head tags and body tags are due to two OUI modules adding code to the document, again Miva related quirks that have yet to be cleaned up.

I notice many of your posts seem hypercritical.  Perhaps just answering the question would be better :)

Thanks.
