While I wish I could say it was all down to my "eyes like a hawk" (who
remembers Marshall Bravestarr? LOL!) - I actually used a handy little
program called ExamDiff that I normally use with CVS versioning, but is
useful for comparing any two files in cases like these. Best thing about
it? It's FREE!! Available here:

Second method I used to make sure that was the problem was a bookmarklet
I set up which toggles table borders on and off throughout the whole
page - lets you see very quickly if there's a problem in the structure.
I've provided a link to it, just right-click and bookmark it - and it's
all yours.

Don't feel bad, we've all made mistakes like that (I know _I_ sure have)
and besides, that's what this list is here for!

Best wishes with the rest of your project, look forward to seeing the
final version (complete with border! :)
