Hi all,

During developing an application to be a cross-browser one, I am experiencing some kind of problem with dynamic info with Netscape Navigator 4.7. I have no mistake with
MSIE. here It is:

When I plan to bound some dynamic info in a table, the NN 4.7 doesnot obey it and ruins the table. It seems to do stupid works. I mean it seems, NN first draw table, then drop info under the table without caring to table borders.

The same problem occures in MSIE when I do not set "height" attribute. but the problem always exist in NN.

please provide a solution for me!

Thanks in advance

your description is a bit weak, could you please give an example.

Meanwhile you can try use WIDTH= and HEIGHT= attribute wherever you know these values. This forces the renderer to build the table faster, usually, sometimes, ...

              <tr>
                   <td width="100%">
                             <table border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" style="border-collapse: collapse" bordercolor="#111111" width="100%" id="AutoNumber21" bgcolor="#F4F9FD" >

Netscape is going to ignore half of your code -- it doesn't support bordercolor, collapse, padding -- so forget those. It also doesn't support XML AT ALL.

What are you expecting it to look like?

If you are doing data binding, forget Netscrap 4.  It does not support it.
