[thelist] liquid table problem in NN6

I am not sure if this is the cause of your problem, but it will cause
problems in NS6. In your table you start off by defining 4 table cells then
when you move to your PHP cells you are only defining 3 cells. Another
problem you have is that you are not defining any widths, fixed or
percentages, for your table cells. Remember, NS6 tends to be very strict in
how it renders things as opposed to ie5 which can usually figure out what
you intended to code as opposed to what you did code.

Hope this helps,

Hi all,

I've stumbled across a problem in my attempt at creating cross browser
liquid tables. The page displays a table with a 75% width and is intended to
be scalable horizontally and vertically as I don't know how much content is
to be 'poured' into the table and I can't guess the client's browser window


The problem seems to be only with NN6 - it displays the content all on one
line rather than wrap the content. This doesn't happen when I specify a
fixed width but it does when I set a percentage width to the table. To be
competely liquid I am trying to achieve the latter.

If anyone is using NN6 and knows if there is any workaround to this I would
be very interested.
