      Thanks! That's some good to know stuff after digging fence posts

        Jody et al:

        Suggestions have been appropriate but not complete.

        <TABLE CELLPADDING="0" CELLSPACING="0" BORDER="0">
        <TR><TD><IMG BORDER="0" HSPACE="0" VSPACE="0"--OTHER
        INFO--></TD></TR><TR><TD><IMG BORDER="0"

        What is salient in the above:

        1) cellpadding and cellspacing and border set to 0 in table
        2) border set to 0 in image
        3) hspace and vspace set to 0 in image
        4) no hard returns between <tr> and <td> or <td> and <img ....> or the
        latter and </td> or between </td> and </tr>

        The last is due to buglet stuff in Netscape in which hard return is
        incorrectly interpreted as white space; I don't know if you experiment with
        multiple browsers but you'll see that IE doesn't do the same thing.

        If you want a border in the table set it as you wish and the rest should
        still stand you in good stead.

        If equal spacing around the image instead of none anywhere, see about using
        align="center" and valign="middle" in the <td> tag

        hope this is of help

        Thanks,

          Yes, I knew about that, but only wrap when I need to, because I
          cannot stand having to wrap my tables and fonts. I find that the
          only time I need to wrap it for my simple code is when the is a
          link in between whatever I'm doing.

          I also found that Netscape seems to need all its attributes even
          if setting to "0" like you showed in some cases and I found out
          from this thread that IE needs them for certain things I try to
          do. I use to add them all by default just because I saw others
          do it, but in a lot of case they aren't needed. I am going back
          to putting them all in and set to "0" unless I want to use them
          of course.

          Thanks for the info Michael and others.

          I have one last problem that I can see:

          http://www.sureword.com/album/albums/index.htm

          I cannot get the bottom horizontal scrollbar to work in NS. If
          you look at it in IE that is the way I want it with all the
          thumbnails on one line with no wrap unless it reaches 1024 pixels
          which is what I have the width set to. Without it NS only showed
          2.5 thumbnails. ;( I set it to SCROLLING=yes to force it, but I
          only get and inactivated scrollbar which makes sense otherwise NS
          would have built the scrollbar.

          So, anybody got a fix for me?

            Maybe it's this:

            <TABLE WIDTH="100%">

            you are limiting the width of your table here to screen size. IE is
            disobeying you, but NN is being obedient! So it is IE you should be unhappy
            with!

            let me know if this guess is correct . . .

              Hi Michael,

              > <TABLE WIDTH="100%">

              OH, I did change it to that - forgot about it till you reminded me.

              > you are limiting the width of your table here to screen size.
              > IE is disobeying you, but NN is being obedient! So it is IE you
              > should be unhappy with!

              OK, I understand that since I have 1500 pixels plus a few with 10
              thumbnails at WIDTH=150. Still, I would think I should have got
              a scrollbar and then it wrap at 1024. It is wrapped in a table -
              uh - why -uh - I don't know - haha. OK I was using the table
              before to limit the width to 150*4+15 so the t-nails would wrap
              at that point.

              I am going to try taking the table out and use a couple of
              &;bns$%&* haha spaces in between the. I suspect the table is
              hosing it. ARGH!!!

              Thanks for your trying to help; works fine without the table.

              Looks like eGroups is picking up its speed again - it has been
              really lagged and so has att. Perhaps there are some major
              backbones down in a fiber cut or...

                Hi All,

                Here is the relevant part of the post from Mark:

                <TABLE BORDER=5 CELLPADDING=1 CELLSPACING=1 BGCOLOR=#000000
                BORDERCOLORDARK=#FFCC00 BORDERCOLORLIGHT=#FF9933>
                <TR><TD>
                <TABLE BORDER=1 BGCOLOR=#000000 BORDERCOLOR=#FF9933>
                <TR><TD>
                <TABLE BORDER=1 BGCOLOR=#000000 BORDERCOLOR=#FF9900>
                <TR><TD>
                <TABLE BORDER=1 BGCOLOR=#000000 BORDERCOLOR=#FF9933>
                <TR><TD>
                <IMG SRC="foo.gif" ALIGN=LEFT VSPACE=0 HSPACE=0>
                </TABLE>
                </TABLE>
                </TABLE>
                </TABLE>
                <P>

                btw, when coding "HTML for speed" (I wrote an HTML server for an embedded
                piece of hardware) it's a neat trick to be able to drop the closing tags
                </TR> and </TD>. It saves a good amount of time/bandwidth when you really
                need to. :)

                IE and NS are both okay with this. In fact, IE will let you drop /TABLE,
                /BODY and /HTML as well.

                And... if you're pushing fonts within table data elements, you can drop
                *all* of the closing tags like /FONT, /B, /U, etc...

                Have fun!

                Mark
