Hi,

I have 3 tabs, the final tab needs to hold a table but whenever i try to insert it, the table simply falls below the tab and get's embeded into the page rather than in the tab. Can someone point to say what i'm doing wrong with a suitable correction?

My html/php/jquery knowledge is limited so please explain/fix in lamence terms for me. :)

Example can be found at http://74.53.102.167/~bookedy/tour.php?id=1

<ul class="tabs">
                          <li><a href="#tab1">Tour Details</a></li>
                <li><a href="#tab2">Itinerary</a></li>
	            <li><a href="#tab3">Dates, Prices & Book</a></li>
          </ul>
                        <div class="tab_container">
                            <div id="tab1" class="tab_content">
                              <p align="left"><span class="style1">Tour Overview </span><br />
                              <?php echo $row_tours['description']; ?></p>
            <p align="center"><img src="pictures/tablinebreak.jpg" alt="linebreak" width="400" height="5" /></p>
            <p align="left"><span class="style1">Highlights</span><br />
              <?php echo $row_tours['highlights']; ?></p>
            <p align="center"><img src="pictures/tablinebreak.jpg" alt="linebreak" width="400" height="5" /></p>

                              <?php } while ($row_itinerary = mysql_fetch_assoc($itinerary)); ?>

I'd start with trying to simplify the html you have here.

I'm guessing on how you want this to end up, but there seems to be too many paragraphs, and not having the close tags may be part of what is causing a problem.
<div id="tab3" class="tab_content">
<p align="left"><span class="style1"> Dates, Prices &amp; Book!</span></p>
<table width="500">
<tr>
<td>Test 1</td>
<td>Test 2</td>
<td>Test 3</td>
<td>Test 4</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Content 1</td>
<td>Content 2</td>
<td>Content 3</td>
<td>Content 4</td>
</tr>
</table>
</div>

I think that the problem is that you are missing tags in other locations.


                  <table width="500px" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
                    <!--DWLayoutTable-->
                    <tr>  
                      <ul class="tabs">


There is not a <td> here.  the table that isn't working right is embeded here, so the tags may be getting mixed up.
