Opera widths (yet again!)

P: n/a

Opera is driving me nuts, I am trying to get it to actually render a
table the full width of the browser window

sounds easy, but no, Opera and only Opera leaves a 16px margin on the
right edge

I know its a bug in Opera, but does anyone know of anyway round it?

All other current browsers I tested render correctly, and yes that even
includes that nasty IE thing

Do you really? In the absence of an url demonstrating the problem I'll
hazard a guess that you are experiencing the fact that Opera uses a
default padding on <body>.

oops forgot to add the URL to the original post

sol4.net/test.html

this renders right in

Safari
camino/mozilla/firebird
IE (windoze/Mac)

as for the opera bugs, lots of references, with this one being one of
the better ones.

Renders identical in IE5.5, Moz 1.5, Opera 7.21 and Opera 7.5p1. Did you
add the padding:0px on the body element later?

No case being made there that suggests that Opera has more bugs than
other UA's. I suggest that you are having difficulty using CSS, and that
this is the cause of your "problems".

I am a Mac user, and have to support Opera 6.03

nope the padding:0 has been there since the begining

Thats not what I am saying, Opera does have its problems, but is not
even close to the worse for CSS pain, that honor stays with IE

that URL taked about one specific Opera issue

Aha, you could have mentioned that rather relevant info in your OP. What
you are seeing is space reserved for the vertical scrollbar, you can
configure v6 to display the scrollbar permanently IIRC if you don't want
the space.

I hope you are not using tables for layout?

thanks, never would have spotted that one

as for the tables and layout, its table free, only tables are used for
tabular data display

thanks for the help
