i dont know why your styles are inline, but if you want an inline style, apply this rule to whatever element you want to hide

Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

It's an old website and the above table is in hundreds of files, I was after a quick way to add something to a common CSS file to hide the  4th row, is this possible?

I don't want to spend time removing from hundreds of files as site will be updated shortly, my customer wants one page removed urgently.

With css you could do this:

.navcell a[href='brokers.php'] {

Thanks Tom, that is almost perfect, is there a way to change the width to 0 as  <td width="96" is still taking up space?

You could hide the whole td if it's always the fourth td as long as there is only one row in the table.

.navcell:nth-of-type(4) {

Older versions of IE will have trouble with this.

As a way to handle IE less than v9 you could add both rules.

.navcell a[href='brokers.php'] {

.navcell:nth-of-type(4) {

Then at least the link will be gone in older IE versions (though the td will still take up space).
