Square table cells

P: n/a

I have a page:

<http://www.westmidlandbirdclub.com/biblio/banbury.htm>

which uses a table to indicate the Ordnance Survey (map) grid- squares
covered by a certain area.

Is there a way to make the table cells square, while still allowing them
to resize as necessary?

td {
width: 4em;
height: 4em;
}

I think a 3 x 3 grid has nine squares, not twelve, BTW.

Thank you.

Is that supported in most browsers?

Do you perhaps refer to:

The BOS area of interest is the twelve 10km x 10km squares, as
defined by the Ordnance Survey, surrounding Banbury, six of
which include parts of Warwickshire (early reports used a
circle, centred on Banbury, of 9 miles radius; this also
included parts of Warwickshire.) ?

If so, you need to read it again ;-)

I think I get it. The diagram shows the six squares that are the
intersection of Banbury and Warwickshire? I won't pretend to
understand the point of that.

td { empty-cells: hide; }

That should help.
