Hi,

Everyone must have come across this problem before ... but as I am in a rush, dont have the time to look it up using search engines.

When i link to a picture <img src=.... width=... height=...>

inside a table/cell of fixed size. There is "sometimes" a gap underneth the image.

This gap is ruining my table setup as it pushes the cells down for the pictures to line up.

I dont have this problem when i set the image as the background, but netscape doesnt show the background if the cell is empty.

1) So either a solution for to get rid of the gap
2) A solution for the netscape background/empty cell
3) A solution for both :)

Many thanks for everyone about to post

It's possible another cell is too long, which will also cause a gap. Or you could have the cell heights set -- and wrong. Or you could have a spacer gif that's too big. Or any one of a dozen other things, or a combination of them.

Get rid of any cell heights, check the height on everything in that row, if you have rowspans check the combined height on them (if that's where this is), etc.

There are numerous reasons for gaps. You have to check ALL of them.
