My page is not behaving

A page that my company maintains is having problems... the main page
is set up to be navigated via images, and they are laid out in a
table... whenever we view the page in IE there are gaps in the images
where the different table rows start and end. At first I had a finite
height set on each image, and the problem appeared in Mozzilla as well
as IE (I never looked in any other browser). Now that the heights are
turned off the problem seems to only appear in IE. If you want to see
the source go to http://www.cheshire-tnd.com/ (this is not the
production server, so the heights are still set there). My boss and I
would be very thankful for any help you can provide.

Sounds like default spacing. You're css in the file is limited to 1
declaration for input (whose font size is rediculously small -- 7pt!
-- please change it to 1em). Try using css to get the tables as you
want them.

A quick look at the site tells me you've used tables for layout.

You didn't validate your html. Please do so:

Steven - Hello from Chapel Hill, NC. :-)

I played with it a little, and when I removed the stray spaces in the code in the table cells, just before the closing </td> tags, it fixed it. :-)

So if you go through the code, and for each <td>Various code in here</td> remove any spaces - they were always just before the closing </a> or between the </a> and the </td>.

Steven -- At the same URL? It looks a lot the same to me in IE 5.5. :\

What I did works for me (on a local copy) in IE 6, NN7, and even NN 4.7. If you do what I described above, it'll get rid of the gaps.

There are 20 cells, and if you miss even 1, it makes its whole row or column have a gap.

I have run HTML tidy on the page and removed all the serious errors (I
have not bothered w/ things like img lacks alt attribute); also I
removed any extra spaces I could find in the <td> tags. The problem
seems to now only appear in Netscape (v 6.2)... not Mozilla (1.4rc3),
IE (v5.5 and 6.0), or Opera (v6.05). I am not sure if there are
problems on other versions (please tell me if you notice there is).
Thanks again.

P.S. we usually do use HTML Tidy to validate our html, however this
html was built using an htp engine, so Tidy had been neglected.

Patty -- yes the same URL, maybe you got a cashed version? or maybe
you simply looked befor I had uploaded to the remote server. Anyway, I
don't see the problem anymore (except in Netscape 6.2, but I'm not
going to worry about that). Thank you for your help.
