Image in table not aligning with page background image -- internet Explorer versus Firefox

Hi,
I have a webpage located here http://www.grosskopfandblack.prontopage.com/page/page/6562464.htm (please view source to see the code) . Note that the page background http://www.grosskopfandblack.prontopage.com/f/design/t_page_background.jpg does not align (use the woodgrain looking line below the black "scales of justice" as the reference point)  with the table when viewed in Firefox, but it does in Internet Explorer.

I realize that there is some kind of code that I would use to have the page render one thing for IE and another for FF but I have no clue what that code would be.

Can someone please help me?

Thanks,
chris

Not able to view the source on your page, but the best thing for alignment would be to use javascript to check the browser type, then change the position style to relative (obj.style.position="relative";), then adjust the top and left values accordingly (obj.style.top="-2";) will move it up 2 pixels, 2 will move down 2 px etc.

Keep in mind that relative may not work because it will be messed up by browser width.  Position.absolute may be a better option, but Firefox puts the 0,0 at the top left of the parent element, and IE puts 0,0 at the top left of the screen.

Hope this helps,

Geoff

height's is your issue, there is no need for specific browser css code, FX and diferent browser render inline elements diferently, i've realized that your header row, the one that has the Home, More Info, About us links is slightly shorter in FX than IE, if you set the height of it, has attached <tr height="30" the image aligns in both browsers.

I hope it helps.
<tr height="30">
							<td bgcolor="#f9d78d" background="">
							
			<table cellspacing="5" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">
			
			
				<tbody><tr>
			
			
				
				
					<td>
						<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" bgcolor="#f9d78d" width="100%">
							<tbody><tr>
				
 
					<td bgcolor="#f9d78d" align="center" width="140" class="link" onmouseover="bgColor='fcf9e7'" onmouseout="bgColor='f9d78d'" onclick="window.location='/page/page/6562464.htm'">
						<a href="/page/page/6562464.htm" onclick="return false;" class="link">Home</a>
					</td>
													
							</tr>
						</tbody></table>
					</td>
					
				 
			
				
				
					<td>
						<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" bgcolor="#f9d78d" width="100%">
							<tbody><tr>
				
 
					<td bgcolor="#f9d78d" align="center" width="140" class="link" onmouseover="bgColor='fcf9e7'" onmouseout="bgColor='f9d78d'" onclick="window.location='/page/page/6562465.htm'">
						<a href="/page/page/6562465.htm" onclick="return false;" class="link">More Info</a>
					</td>
													
							</tr>
						</tbody></table>
					</td>
					
				 
			
				
				
					<td>
						<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" bgcolor="#f9d78d" width="100%">
							<tbody><tr>
				
 
					<td bgcolor="#f9d78d" align="center" width="140" class="link" onmouseover="bgColor='fcf9e7'" onmouseout="bgColor='f9d78d'" onclick="window.location='/page/page/6562466.htm'">
						<a href="/page/page/6562466.htm" onclick="return false;" class="link">About Us</a>
					</td>
													
							</tr>
						</tbody></table>
					</td>
					
				 
			
 
			
				</tr>
			
			
			</tbody></table>
		 
		
							</td>
						</tr>
