Google Search Box White Gap

Posted on 2007-10-11

Hello, I have placed a google search box on my site. On the results page, when the results come up, theres a huge white gap between the end of the results and my copyright information. Whenever I do the search in my browser IE on my computer, the spacing is right, but whenever I use it on other computers, that white gap is there.

Here is the code: There are no CSS properties here, and in the frame of my website, there are absolutely no gaps. The table cell the results are supposed to show in are supposed to expand to the width of the results.

<td colspan="17"><!-- Google Search Result Snippet Begins -->
<div id="results_"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
  var googleSearchIframeName = "results_";
  var googleSearchFormName = "searchbox_";
  var googleSearchFrameWidth = 600;
  var googleSearchFrameborder = 0;
  var googleSearchDomain = "";
  var googleSearchPath = "/cse";
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<!-- Google Search Result Snippet Ends --></td>

Any ideas? Thanks. try it yourself on my new website:

    you mean to say the gap comes only when the search result is displayed ?

    it happens on some browsers ive used on other computers. Maybe its a problem with older versions of IE? One of the computers I used was older. The other one, however, was around 1 year old.
