I have a table for the header of my web page and see a difference between 2 cells using an image for the gray shading. I need to separate the cells due to having buttons in the center.

Please view the image enclosed and see the slight difference within the circle.

Is there a fix for this?

Code using for the cells:
.tableCell {
	background-image: url(images/bar.png);
	background-repeat: repeat;

Does this occur on a simple test case? Did you happen to change the background-position CSS property?

Happens with all browsers and I don't think I changed the background position.

Using this code for each cell:
class="tableCell"

It looks like those are at least 2 different table cells and your background image is starting over at each cell. Some of options could be

a) Use a css gradient instead

b) Change your background image so the color gradient is only 100% vertical without color variation from left to right.  

c) Make sure the table cell to the left has the same exact background image.

It would be easier to determine the problem if you posted a link.  Otherwise, see if these suggestions help.

padas - how would I use an css gradient? will it work for all browsers?

see code below:


<style type="text/css">
 #navbar ul { 
	margin: 0; 
	padding: 7px; 
	list-style-type: none; 
	text-align: center; 
	background-image: url(images/bar.png);
   	} 
 
#navbar ul li {  
	display: inline; 
	} 
 
#navbar ul li a {
	text-decoration: none;
	padding: .5em .5em;
	color: #fff;
	font-family:  ;
	font-size: 17px;
	font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;	
  
	} 
 #navbar ul li a:hover {
	color: #000;
	background-color: #fff;
	font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif;

You could always use Photoshop, chop off the end of the image, maybe 2-3 pixels wide and repeat it across the table to the button and the background always match 100%, no matter what. Plus, it will work cross browser and it is almost no overhead.  Or remove the background from the button?
