Is anyone else having this problem or only me.
When creating a table, if modifying the cellspacing = 0 and cellpadding = 0...
why does frontpage not insert the cellspacing = "0" into the html code?? but does insert cellpadding = "0"???

HTML standards demand that.

Let me explain.

Any entity, which is a non keyword, has to be quoted as per HTML standards. So, be it whatever value you assign, it has to be inside double quotes.

CELLSPACING = 0

Works but is NOT compliant.

CELLSPACING = "0"

Complies to HTML standards.



BACKGROUND = RED

Works but is NOT compliant.

BACKGROUND = "RED"

Complies to HTML standards.

Hi RickDai,

To answer your question - it's not "exactly" a bug in FP2003. Because the cellspacing attribute doesn't exist in the CSS spec - it aooears that they decided not to have it created in the html code automatically - in the same way that previous versions did.

So - the fastest option is to give cellspacing an attribute of 1, and then simply change it to 0.

Thanks,
seanpowell

Not that I'm aware of. If you insert the table into the page while you're in html view, and still don't get the cellspacing attribute - then there's probably no way to speed up the process. I've used their demo quite a few times and never experienced that behvaiour - so it's very likely that it's particular to your specific OS/FP version. If you're using the beta that may be having an effect...
