We use Dreamweaver to develop. Our website www.newsknife.com
has for years had some pages containing tables. The height of the cells would appear as no greater than the contents. Now, in IE8 and FireFox we find that the cells appear with a much greater height than the contents. For example, a cell containing MONTH\PAGE was no higher than that 12pt wording. Now it is three times that height.
Presumably the change is the result of browsers now having better compliance with web standards. The question is how do we now control the cell height to return to being defined by its contents height or something similar? I've tried specifying a pixel height for the table but the cells still grow too high.

e" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />, (which I think I should probably remove site-wide). Refer to the first table that has a yellow background. The top left cell says MONTH\PAGE.
This table is defined by this code:
<table bgcolor="#FFCC00" border="1" bordercolor="#dddddd" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="700">
