URGENT: How to make rows with background color look seemless (crosspost)

P: n/a
DL
Hi,

I'm not entirely sure if it's an HTML question or CSS one (so I've
also posted it to the HTML ng as well).
Case here:
<table>
<tr><td bgcolor="black">bla bla</td<td>something else</td></tr>
<tr><td bgcolor="black">bla bla row 2</td<td>something else 2</td></
tr>
<tr><td bgcolor="black">bla bla row 3</td<td>something else 3</td></
tr>
</table>

With IE7 on XP box, there's tiny gap between each row, the question
is,
how to seem them look seemless (without any gaps)?

Many thanks.

Yours is incorrect markup. But you might find, once you fix it and still
have your problem of gaps that

either:

<table cellspacing="0">

or

<table style="border-collapse: collapse;">

can fix.

But best to fix your markup, get a valid html file going with a proper
doctype (use 4.01 Strict) and post a url.

I know what you mean. It is a dangerous world. But don't worry, use it
to your advantage: having enemies can make you grow up tough (like the
bloke in the Johnny Cash song, "My name is Sue").

Wow. Incoherent.

What doesn't kill you can leave you crippled.

Let me make it clearer that I did not write the above. But aside from
that, it does not seem incoherent to me. You must not confuse wild,
unevidenced for incoherence.

I did wonder how Sue might have fared after that vicious fight with his
father.

No, I know. I didn't mean to imply you did imply that I did*. That is
why I chose my words carefully. <g>

-----------------------------------
* Numerous levels of reflection about other minds is not confined to
humans. But it is more sophisticated in humans than in any other species
on earth. It is pretty well needed for animal life in general, there is
some argument about proto types of it being in plants.

What is this all about? Something quite interesting really. I will be
brief though: most any animal needs to be able to read other animals'
intentions, both those preying on them and their own potential victims.
For obvious reasons.

However the game of surviving is tough and requires more than being able
to read the other mind at one level. Sure, it is important for the tiger
to know whether the deer has or has not seen him. And it helps him to
know whether the deer thinks the distance between them is enough to go
on safely but watchingly munching. And the deer needs to know that the
tiger has seen her. And it helps her to know that he is still thinking
of having a go. Think of this as one level of reading the other mind.

But now, it helps the tiger to know if the deer thinks he is intending
to have a go or has given up (or is half-hearted). If he thinks the deer
is making a dangerous assumption (that, for example, he has given up),
this is valuable information for him and he can act with subtly and
cunning to encourage that further while yet somehow increasing his
chances. The deer, for its part, might like the tiger to know that not
only has it seen him but that it also thinks the tiger is intending to
have a go (to really discourage him, not to tempt him to pretend to be
discouraged).

It can get quite sophisticated at further levels. Humans are truly
sensational in this respect in their relations with people.

You deleted DL's attribute, hence the confusion.

My only slight concern was this. Some of my enemies might think I used
foul language. Now, as everyone knows, I never ever fall to this
delicious temptation, in spite of masquerading as an Australian. <g>
