Browser Compatibility - table spacing

I have been developing a carousel function for my website www.dealclick.co.uk which uses jQuery to rotate between products.

I have been developing this on a Mac, using FireFox to get it as I visually wanted it to look, as in the image below:

 Working fine in FireFox
However when I look at the same url (www.dealclick.co.uk) in Safari or Chrome (I haven't even got to IE) the spacing seems off, it seems the TD height, which should be 50px goes to 51px in Chrome, this maybe because the height is set to 50px, with a 1px border, but in FF this still keeps to 50px in total, but in Chrome the border doesnt seem to be inclusive of height:

 Not working so well in Chrome
Any ideas how to work around this?

Cheers

border-bottom: 1px solid

You need to disable this code  in all the "#option*" CSS tags, place

border :0px;

for all these tags.

Hope this helps

OK, I found a work around: basically as FireFox counts the borders in the height, where as Chrome etc don't so the actual content height in FF was 49px, as there was a 1px top border Chrome et al saw the content height as 50px, so the overall height was 51px.

To work around this I put a div in the TD with a height set to 50px, has no effect in Chrome etc as already thinks its 50px, but within FF it pushes it out to 50px, so now all browser look the same.

Thanks anyway
