View Full Version : Mozilla table border problems!

08 Dec 2005, 04:55 AM
Please view this site http://www.uk-life.co.uk/ in IE and Mozilla.

IE is how it should look.

I have created the tables with a size 3 border, the cells have different colours and backgrounds to get the effect that you see in IE.

Is there something I can do here to fix the Mozilla problem or am I going to have to redesign the whole site?

Any Help would be great.

The way the browsers render table borders does vary considerable. There is no way round this using just html. However, if you implement some CSS on your site then you can have much greater contorl over the way your borders display. For exmple this CSS code might give you an idea of how to alter things;

<td style="border-top:3px solid #CCCCCC; border-left:3px double #CCCCCC; border-right:3px solid #CCCCCC; border-bottom:0px none #CCCCCC; background-color:#CCCCCC; color:#333333;">

There's allot more you can do with CSS and smarter ways you can implement it. For example, with a little alteration you could apply that CSS to all the td table cells rather than having to define each individually.

Rememeber also to run your site through http://validator.w3.org/ to check for any errors.
