hi, I am trying to stretch an image over a table row cell.  I want the third row to display like the first two rows (with the arrow in the same cell as the FirstName LastName).  However, when I remove the second table closing tags (i.e. </td></tr></table>) from the first cell in this row and put them in the second cell,  the arrow no longer stretches in IE 8.  

I am using Javascript to stretch the arrow at the bottom of the page.
 table-stretch.html

 here is the arrow image

hi there Scifo_dk, that is almost exactly what I want, but of course IE 8 is showing one quirky issue, which is the vertical align of the data (FirstName LastName) in the first cell does not align vertically in the center as it is supposed to.
