Hi,
The following works in my version of IE7

<td style="width:220px; background-color:#ffcc00;
  border-color: gray;
border-style: solid;
border-width: 5px;
text-align:center; vertical-align:top;">Content</td>

Vertical alignment defined in CSS, better still make this a class.

Regards.

Hi,
Do you have content in the cell, also it may sound silly but #FFFFFF is white can you see that on your background?
When I tested in other browsers the table cell shows up without content in Google Chrome but not in IE7. It will only show up in IE7 if the cell has content.
Try the copying the following code into an empty HTML page and see if it works for you:
<table>
<tr>
    <td style="width:220px; background:#ffcc00;
    border-color: gray;
    border-style: solid;
    border-width: 5px;
    text-align:center; vertical-align:top;">Hello</td>
</tr>
</table>

Regards.

hi you need to have content in background for IE to render it. just place a white space (&nbsp;) inside and it should be done.
