Align=right dosent work ?

Hei!

Have this code for a header:

<header>
<table width="100%" align="left" border="1" padding-right="10px" class="headertabell">
<tr class="rapport1_del5">

<td class="rapport1_del5" align="left">
<a href="#" onClick="window.print()"> <img src="../images/skriver.png" TYPE="button" align="left" /> Printer </a></td>
<td class="rapport1_del5" align="left">
<a href="MPDF/examples/PDF6.php?brukerID=<?php echo $brukerID ?>&kundeid=<?php echo $kundeid ?>" target="_self"><img src="../images/PDF.png" align="left"/> PDF </a></td>
<td class="rapport1_del5" align="right">
<a href="#" onClick="window.print()"> <img src="../images/skriver.png" TYPE="button" align="left" /> Logg ut </a></td>
</tr>
</table>

</header >

Open in new window


***** CSS ********
.rapport1_del5
{
    background-color: #efefef;
    border: none ! important;
    box-shadow: none ! important;
    padding-left:15px;
      height:30px;
      padding-top:3px;
}


My problem is this code:
<td class="rapport1_del5" align="right">
<a href="#" onClick="window.print()"> <img src="../images/skriver.png" TYPE="button"

It dosent align="right", but it align="left"  WHY ?

You have three different definitions:

<tr class="rapport1_del5">

<td class="rapport1_del5" align="left">

<td class="rapport1_del5" align="right">

as well as:

***** CSS ********
.rapport1_del5
{
    background-color: #efefef;
    border: none ! important;
    box-shadow: none ! important;
    padding-left:15px;
      height:30px;
      padding-top:3px;
}

I think the padding-left in the css is trumping your left vs right vs your blank align calls..

Use float: right on the elements, you'll have much more controls over what you want
Here's a test link: http://jsfiddle.net/AlexCode/8avHe/

And here's the changed code:
<header>
    <table width="100%" align="left" border="1" padding-right="10px" class="headertabell">
        <tr class="rapport1_del5">
            <td class="rapport1_del5" align="left">
<a href="#" onClick="window.print()"> <img src="../images/skriver.png" TYPE="button" align="left" /> Printer </a>
            </td>
            <td class="rapport1_del5" align="left">
<a href="MPDF/examples/PDF6.php?brukerID=<?php echo $brukerID ?>&kundeid=<?php echo $kundeid ?>" target="_self"><img src="../images/PDF.png" align="left"/> PDF </a>
            </td>
            <td class="rapport1_del5" align="right">
                <a href="#" onClick="window.print()"> 
                    <span style="float:right">Log out</span>
                    <img src="../images/skriver.png" TYPE="button" style="float:right" />
                </a>
            </td>
        </tr>
    </table>
</header>

Note that I only changed the part you mentioned and put the style inline.
It's better that you rework this layout a bit and move all styles to the css.

Yes, avoid your inline styles  http://jsbin.com/ATUVuKIN/1/edit?html,output
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>JS Bin</title>
  <style>
    table.headertabell{
  float:left;
  width:100%;
  padding-right:10px;
  border-style:solid;
  border-width:1px;
  
  
}
.leftText{text-align:left;}
.rightText{text-align:right;}
  </style>
</head>
<body>
  <header>
<table class="headertabell">
<tr class="rapport1_del5">

<td class="rapport1_del5 leftText">

<td class="rapport1_del5 rightText" >

</tr>

I would also consider making 3 div's instead of the table. http://jsbin.com/ATUVuKIN/2/edit?html,output
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>JS Bin</title>
  <style>
    header{
      width:100%;
      border-style:solid;
      border-width:1px;
      height:50px;
    }
  .rapport1_del5{
  float:left;
  width:30%;
  margin-right:1%;

}
.leftText{text-align:left;}
.rightText{text-align:right;}
  </style>
</head>
<body>
  <header>

<div class="rapport1_del5 leftText">
<a href="#" onClick="window.print()"> <img src="../images/skriver.png" TYPE="button" align="left" /> Printer </a></div>
<div class="rapport1_del5 leftText">
<a href="MPDF/examples/PDF6.php?brukerID=<?php echo $brukerID ?>&kundeid=<?php echo $kundeid ?>" target="_self"><img src="../images/PDF.png" align="left"/> PDF </a></div>
<div class="rapport1_del5 rightText" >
<a href="#" onClick="window.print()"> <img src="../images/skriver.png" TYPE="button" align="left" /> Logg ut </a></div>

</header >
</body>
</html>
