Cellspacing different between browsers

P: 3
i am working on a layout for a site re-design..

please check the link http://www.vikingbjj.com/new/tempvbjj.php both in internet explorer, and mozilla foxfire

in IE the cellspacing works fine, showing the lighter blue background color and the little fade at the top..
but for some reason it is different in mozilla.. i could have sworn it was working before I added the yellow logo and the flash advertisement on the right that it was working.. but when i went back and erased them it still did not work...

I really need help ASAP with this! i was suposed to post it online for my client to see today and i am late because of this.. he only has mozilla!

If I were you I'd get rid of the table layout all together and use CSS to structure your page. Also I'd get the web developer toolbar for Firefox then validate the site until it is green-lighted. It might help. As for what is creating the differences in the page... I dunno sorry.

You are using IE as your reference to how things should work but it is IE that is butchering your markup while Firefox is showing what you wrote. IE is 10 years behind web standards, non-standard and buggy. Use a modern browser for your reference, such as Firefox or Opera.

You have no doctype. This puts IE into quirks mode and it uses Microsoft's broken box model. See the article about doctypes under Howtos above.

Validate your html and css for your list of errors on that page. Read about validation under Howtos also.

Good for him! A modern client has modern tools. No one should use IE.

some people do use IE, and I was using both IE and Mozilla to verify... everything was working on both.. then right before I posted it for him to see something was changed and it is not working.. i cannot figure out what it is.

i used table layout because the last website I made I used css only and had layout problems and had to use the IE conditional comments and write the page twice to make it work on both..

Cellspacing works just fine in Firefox.

Again, until you use a proper doctype, you will never get IE to try and pretend it's a modern browser. And until you fix your 23 html errors and 12 css errors, you won't get reliable performance in any browser.
