View Full Version : IE problems with a table

04-19-2006, 09:32 PM
I am using a table on the following pages but in IE, it sends the pages way down low on the page. Is there someway that I can fix it so that IE shows the information near the top of the page?

What's the issue, exactly?

All I'm seeing when using IE5 (doesn't happen in safari) is the links at the top of the right of the page are ON TOP of the links on the left... bad layered effect... bug... but not sure if this is different than what you're asking above.

Sorry, what i mean is that when I use a table, since it is the easiest way to do the information that I have on the page, the table in the content area is sent really far down on the page.

So when people go to the page using IE, they think that there is no content on the page.

What I want to do is bring that content that is near the bottom of the page up to the top and get ride of the giant blank area.

Looking in IE 5 for mac...
all that seems wrong with it is that the width of the section (cell? div?) that the text in the very upper right is is too small to hold the text, and weird line breaks are added.. squished.

So... not sure about your question... don't see it happening.

However, solution:
Go in to the code, and look at each of the width/height commands.
1. check them, make sure they're right.
2. Change them, see what they do.
3. through trial and error, add ones that don't exist AND remove ones that do until you have found a solution.

Or... just remove all size formatting on the table... then start from scratch... that'll clear it up, right?

Also, do you have any absoultely positioned <div> layers? That might make something go in a weird spot... but probly not.

And... check that you have valign="" set in the <td> tags. That is vertical align.. can be either top, middle or bottom. You want top.
Generally, the default is set by the browser, and i think IE may decide to center/bottom align rather than top align as you want.

Here, I have attached a screen shot. To begin, these are the only two pages I have with tables on it, so I believe it is a css thing. As you can see, in IE, it drops the content really low on the page and leaves alot of white space on top. Also, I have a really high resolution on my computer, but for those who might use 1024 or lower, maybe higher, the page looks completely blank unless they scroll down.

You have just the one table on the page:


Its width is set to 100%:

<h3>EXV2 Specifications</h3>
<table width="100%" border="0">
<td colspan="2" . . .

For some reason that is just too wide, causing it to wrap. I used 99% and it seemed fine.
