  • Problem with Netscape and TABLES

    I'm trying to create a table and in one of the cells, I wanna put a background image. It will display fine in IE, but it won't even show up with Netscape 4. I've been trying to figure out why, but can't seem to find an answer. I've even tried placing the image that I'm using as a background in the cell as just an image, but that won't work either. Here is a sample of my code:

    <table width="167" height="705" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <td width="12"><img src="images/PURPLE_top_left.gif" width="22" height="21"></td>
    <td width="142" height="21" background="images/PURPLE_top_bar.gif">&nbsp;</td>
    <td width="13"><img src="images/PURPLE_top_right.gif" width="22" height="21"></td>
    <td height="658" background="images/PURPLE_left_bar.gif">&nbsp;</td>
    <td bgcolor="A471A9">&nbsp;</td>
    <td align="left" valign="middle" background="images/PURPLE_right_bar.gif"><img src="images/PURPLE_right_bar.gif" width="22" height="1"></td>
    <td><img src="images/PURPLE_bottom_left.gif" width="22" height="25"></td>
    <td height="10" background="images/PURPLE_bottom_bar.gif">&nbsp;</td>
    <td><img src="images/PURPLE_bottom_right.gif" width="22" height="25"></td>

    First, be sure to include a &amp'nbsp; in the "empty" cells.

    Second, <td bgcolor="A471A9"> </td> should be <td bgcolor="#A471A9">&amp;nbsp;</td>

    See if that doesn't clear up some stuff.

      i seem to recall that NS4 doesn't do table bg's but i could be thinking of CSS

      i gave up coding for it a while back, when it wouldn't render my XHTML 1.0 Strict coding properly.

        It does do table tags. I believe it CSS that your talking about. Anyway, I still haven't found a solution but check here to see what I'm trying to do:

            so it looked ok with Netscape 4.7???? Cause I'm trying to view it with Netscape 4.08 and it doesn't make a complete rectangle.
