IE Margin Issue

22 New Member
Hey all,
I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't seem to find the answer (don't know exactly how to word it)...

I've got a table and I set the margin like so:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. style="margin:0px 40px;"
In FF it looks fine... in IE, the right margin of the table appears to be zero (text pushed right against right-side of window). I tried writing like so:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. style="margin-left: 40px; margin-right: 40px;"
but the same problem occurs.. I also tried increasing the margin-right to 80px thinking that maybe there was some kinda offset issue but the text is still pressed against the right-side of the window.

Any thoughts?

I seem to have fixed the problem... though I don't know why it was happening in the first place (guessin an IE bug)...

I forgot to mention in the previous post that this was a nested table. As such, I used padding on the cell the table was located in instead of setting the magin on the nested table itself:
[HTML]<td colspan="2" style="padding: 0px 40px;">[/HTML]

It now looks the same in both browsers. I'd still appreciate a reply if anyone knows why this happened.

It's always an IE bug.

I rarely use tables for anything so I'm not much help here.

Here's a problem I've never seen before. On <http://snow.prohosting.com/srcopan/anti/>, should the viewport width be less than the width of the page's header, then the right margin becomes stuck at the viewport's right edge. This is perhaps better observed than described; try it yourself at narrow viewport widths and/or high zoom levels. I am guessing that I've mucked up something in the CSS's margin settings, but I can't find it by...

Hello, In my (seemingly) endless quest to understand CSS, I have yet another problem. Please look at http://www.kidsinaction.org.uk/ph/x.html in Opera, where you will see it how I expected. If you look at it in IE (6 or 7), you find it also looks fine, except for the top margin missing from the links across the top of the page. That's not the main issue here, but any pointers as to why it doesn't show them would be appreciated.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.
