Post 3+ Months Ago

Hi, this is my 2nd post, I wanted to ask...

There have been a couple of websites I have visited, and the sites haven't been displaying properly. They were made with one image being sliced and put into a table. For everyone else they look fine, for me I have "gaps" in the table which make the image appear to be unjoined.

Can someone help or explain?

Browser: Internet Explorer 6.0.2800.1106.xpsp2.030422-1633

OS: Windows XP Pro 2002 Service Pack 1

Resolution: 1280 x 1024

Link to test: http://groups.msn.com/teen-station/homepage

Details: This is a page me and my friend designed using Adobe Photoshop. When it was uploaded onto the MSN Groups webpage and I checked it, it seemed like the table was "Broken" and did not appear joined. However when anyone else views it, it seems perfect. A friend sent me a screen dump of his screen and it did seem right. Any help?

It is probably the settings on your computer. Depending on the fonts and such that you have set up for your OS, this may or may not be the problem. IE uses the system defaults if no style is provided by the html. So if you have icon spacing increased possibly it would do this? It could also be the font spacing or size. If the table is auto-stretch, then the cells may be padding themselves to fit the font size. Try adding in a style block to the html of your page. just enter the following html to the head of your page and see if it helps:

Code: [ Select ]
<style>
td
{
font-size: "1";
font-decoration: None;
font-family: Times;
font-weight: Normal;
font-spacing: 0;
}
</style>
  1. <style>
  2. td
  3. {
  4. font-size: "1";
  5. font-decoration: None;
  6. font-family: Times;
  7. font-weight: Normal;
  8. font-spacing: 0;
  9. }
  10. </style>


I am not pro at CSS so please correct me if I made a mistake. Just trying to help as much as I can! :oops:

Thanks for your help, but that wasn't the answer I was looking for. How do you presume I view pages correctly if I am not the author of them?

It happens on pages which I do not upload... well actually it only happens when 1 person makes the pages, which I don't understand and cannot figure out!

I hold a huge grudge against Internet Explorer, and would be very quick to blame all your problems on your browser.

It sounds to me like the problem is with your resolution. Just from looking at the site, I would assume the designer probably didn't take into consideration different screen sizes. The contents of the table cells are formatted exactly to 1024x768.

I hope that helped. Failing that, I hope it made sense.

when a web page is open, hold down your ctrl key and move your scroll wheel (on your mouse) up or down until the tables fit nicely.
