Post your question to a community of 468,272 developers. It's quick & easy.

Making a <TD> abut a <DIV> instead of "float."

Hoping that someone here can see the glitch I'm experiencing.

I build a site for an organization in which a <TD> which recurs on most
of the pages displays exactly as intended in IE, Netscape and Firefox.
It is seen here: http://www.lipsa.net/, and the external style sheet is
at http://www.lipsa.net/pbr.css.

Note how the dark green TD "sidebar" on the right of the screen flushes
all the way to the right, and up against both the top and bottom DIVs.

Enboldened with the success of the first site, I attacked the larger
project with confidence, only to discover that, while the same general
design displays perfectly in IE, the TD column refuses to remain on the
far left or right flush against the margin, or to abut the top and
bottom DIVs in either Netscape and Firefox. The site is
http://www.thegunzone.com and the stylesheet is
http://www.thegunzone.com/gz.css.

I've been studying this problem for several months now, and cannot see
why the "blue sidebar" on the one site refuses to behave the way the
"green sidebar" does on the first site.

What am I missing in the mark-up? Why does the "blue sidebar" insist on
"floating?"

Thank you...
