    Table help with Firefox vs. IE

      Link to page with question is http://www.risd41.org/ri/alumni/1968/2007%2040th%20Reunion%20Invite.htm

      Table looks like I want it too in IE 7 but rows are spaced out too far apart in Firefox.

      How can I make the Firefox result the same as IE 7 (without changing IE 7 result)

          Hello,

          The fastest thing to do is just re-create the inner table. Getting rid of
          that bad MS Word HTML will do wonders.

          In code view, change this:

          <table width="406" border="0" align="center">
          <tr class="MsoNormal">
          <th colspan="3" scope="col"><div align="left" class="style4">
          <p class="MsoNormal">Cost breakdown:</p>
          </div></th>
          </tr>
          <tr class="MsoNormal">
          <td width="85%"><div align="center" class="style4">
          <div align="left">
          <p class="MsoNormal">Friday and Saturday activities (includes
          booklet)<o:p></o:p></p>
          </div>
          </div></td>
          <td width="4%"><p class="style4">$</p></td>
          <td width="11%"><div align="right" class="style4">
          <p>40.00</p>
          </div></td>
          </tr>
          <tr class="MsoNormal">
          <td><p class="style4"> Friday night munchies</p></td>
          <td><p class="style4">$</p></td>
          <td><div align="right" class="style4">
          <p>2.00</p>
          </div></td>
          </tr>
          <tr class="MsoNormal">
          <td><p class="style4"><span class="MsoNormal ">Mailings (postcard
          &amp; invite)</span></p></td>
          <td><p class="style4">$</p></td>
          <td><div align="right" class="style4">
          <p>2.00</p>
          </div></td>
          </tr>
          <tr class="MsoNormal">
          <td><p class="style4">Booklet</p></td>
          <td><p class="style4">$</p></td>
          <td><div align="right" class="style4">
          <p>6.00</p>
          </div></td>
          </tr>
          <tr class="MsoNormal">
          <td><p class="style4"><span class="MsoNormal ">Saturday&rsquo;s
          dinner, tax &amp; gratuity</span></p></td>
          <td><p class="style4">$</p></td>
          <td><div align="right" class="style4">
          <p>30.00</p>
          </div></td>
          </tr>
          <tr class="MsoNormal">
          <td><p class="style4"><span class="MsoNormal ">Centerpieces,
          decorations</span></p></td>
          <td><p class="style4">$</p></td>
          <td><div align="right" class="style4">
          <p>3.50</p>
          </div></td>
          </tr>
          <tr class="MsoNormal">
          <td><p class="style4"><span class="MsoNormal ">Music (D.J. or
          band)</span></p></td>
          <td><p class="style4">$</p></td>
          <td><div align="right" class="style4">
          <p>6.00</p>
          </div></td>
          </tr>
          </table>


          TO THIS:

          <table width="406" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="4" cellspacing="0"
          class="style4"> <tr>
          <th align="left">Cost breakdown:</th>
          <th> </th>
          <th> </th>
          </tr>
          <tr>
          <td>Friday and Saturday activities (includes booklet)</td>
          <td>$</td>
          <td align="right">40.00</td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
          <td>Friday night munchies</td>
          <td>$</td>
          <td align="right">2.00</td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
          <td>Mailings (postcard &amp; invite)</td>
          <td>$</td>
          <td align="right">2.00</td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
          <td>Booklet</td>
          <td>$</td>
          <td align="right">6.00</td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
          <td>Saturday&rsquo;s dinner, tax &amp; gratuity</td>
          <td>$</td>
          <td align="right">30.00</td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
          <td>Centerpieces, decorations</td>
          <td>$</td>
          <td align="right">3.50</td>
          </tr>
          <tr>
          <td>Music (D.J. or band)</td>
          <td>$</td>
          <td align="right">6.00</td>
          </tr>
          </table>



          You might want to make a backup copy of the page, and then run DW's "clean
          up Word HTML" function just to see what it will do :-).
          It's under "Commands". Check all the boxes under "Basic".
          It will remove a couple of hundred pieces of redundant or invalid code.

          Then you can select "clean up HTML" just above it, under "Commands".


          Hope that helps,
