Strange Colspan and/or Rowspan issue when viewing in IE6
Posted on 2006-03-29
I am having an issue where the page displays fine in Firefox but not in IE and I'm frustrated because it appears to be a very simple thing. I'll try explain by first showing the code I am using:
TABLE 1 - nested about 3 tables deep and sits within another table's <td colspan="7"></td>:
. . . . . and so on for 10 rows.
MY PROBLEM: In the <td rowspan="10"></td> cell, I have 5 hyperlinks, each within <div></div> tags as you can see. Initially it looks like everything is working, but if I try the links, only LINK1 works in IE - the other 4 just appear as regular text. Everthing works fine in Firefox though. I experimented a little and found that if I change either the ROWSPAN or the COLSPAN (of the cell that the table is nested within) to 1, all the links work but of course the page layout gets all messed up. If I change the ROWSPAN to 2, the only top LINK1 and LINK2 work . . . any other ROWSPAN number, only LINK1 works??????????!!!!!!!
Any ideas why only the top link works? I know I do not have </tr> tags - I rarely use them without problem, but I did try to insert them to see if that would solve my problem . . but it didn't.
