Hi Experts,

Firefox renders my HTML snippet code correctly whereas IE7 sucks!

The middle picture must be 388 pixels width ; the left and right pictures should be relative width.

If I remove the attribute "width" from TD, the 3 TD are equally sized.

Please, find below the snippet code I am talking about:

Thanks for your help.
		<table height="33px" width=100% cellpadding=0 cellspacing=0 border=0>
			<tr width="100%">
				<td style="background-image: url('dot.png'); background-repeat: repeat-x; width:auto;" ></td>
				<td style="background-image: url('middle.png'); background-repeat: no-repeat; width: 388px; " ></td>
				<td style="background-image: url('dot.png'); background-repeat: repeat-x; width:auto;" ></td>
