Wrong table place online on Firefox


I use Dreamweaver 8.
I have inserted a table which is at the right place in Firefox, Opera and IE on local display.
But when I upload online the file, it is displayed correctly only in Opera and IE.

I use the following .class:
Dispay: table row
position: absolute
right: 350px
top: 1110 px.

Thank you in advance for your help,

The first question is whether what you show for your css is exactly as it is in your stylesheet. If so, there should be a hyphen between table and row. Second, 'display: table-row' does not work in IE. And third, you need semi-colons at the end of each line or little of that will work.

Why it works locally but now online, I don't know except it's possible you are still referring to your local files in your markup; such as 'src="c:\mycss.css"'.

Always remember that in almost all cases, if it doesn't work in Firefox but it does in IE, then there is something wrong with the markup. Never use IE as a reference for how things should work. All versions of IE are nine years behind web standards.

Dear Howard,

Thank you for your reply.
Here is the exact code I use:
.tablepal {
display: inline;
position: absolute;
top: 1150px;
right: 350px;}.
Please, I cannot understand what you mean by:
your markup; such as 'src="c:\mycss.css"'.
My css styles are all in an external style sheet: global css.

Thank you in advance,

That is different than what you posted earlier. Showing the CSS is only half the picture and doesn't do much good without the html. The complete markup or, preferably, a link is better.

When people use Dreamweaver, then upload the files to their server, sometimes they forget to change the path to the source files. iow, if you are developing on a Windows computer, and your 'global.css' file is in c:\mywebsite\global.css', when you upload, the path to that css file will no longer be c:\mywebsite but whatever path is given to you on your host.

So if you view the source of your online page in your browser and look at the source of any images, CSS, links, etc., you might see something like:
src="c:\mywebsite\....." or possibly src="file"\\\:mywebsite/..........." both of which would be wrong.
