problem with a table in firefox but not in internet explorer

P: n/a
Hi, I made a lots tables in Dreamweaver to put my images in it then I
made a menu in Javascript. I'm pretty sure there's no error in my size
of cells and they are all valign="top". In Internet Explorer, there's
no visual glitch or error BUT in Firefox (Opera and Netscape) there's a
space just bellow my menu.

It's possible too see my page if you change the IP adress in your HOSTS
(search HOSTS in the search engine of your computer, open it with
notepad and then paste this

69.90.87.146 www.kanasuta.com

at the end) and then go this link

My head hurts trying to decifer that code. Did Dreamweaver make it go all
over the place like that?
Sorry, my only suggestion would be to investigate doing it with CSS rather
than tables. Once you get rid of some of the code into a stylesheet, you
can debug a page much easier than if you have to wade through 20 nested
<font> tags and indents of 2 or 3 page widths.

This, in itself, does not bode well. Unless one has a decent
understanding of HTML, Dreamweaver is more trouble than it is worth.
Furthermore, tables do little more than complicate markup (and later
maintenance) when used for layout purposes.

Looking at your markup, it is horrendous. There is little value in
trying to fiddle with it to solve your (minor) rendering error; it
should be rewritten. I can only recommend that you first take time to
understand HTML, and learn how to present a document using CSS. During
that period, stay well clear of software like Dreamweaver and use little
more than a syntax-highlighting text editor.

What you mean is IE has correctly /guessed/ what you wanted to do,
whereas others have not. Given the quality of your markup, one can
hardly blame them. And this is a HTML question, more appropriate in the
alt.html or comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html (ciwah) groups.

Not asking for much, are you? Expecting every reader of your post to
temporarily modify their network configuration in order to investigate
your problem is inconsiderate, at best.

There is a beautiful DreamWeaver 6 parts article on using tableless
design which starts like this:

"tables do a pretty lousy job of page construction. Among their
shortcomings is the implied bias of the code towards presentation rather
than structure, the necessity to nest tables in order to achieve the
most basic of layouts, and enough redundant bandwidth-hogging tags to
feed a large family of tag eating monsters for literally a month."
Tableless layout with DreamWeaver

If you use <font>, then may I quote the W3C:
"Do not use the FONT element with the FACE attribute. It's considered
harmful from an internationalization standpoint. If you want to learn
how to get rid of your font element and adopt style sheets, we encourage
you to read the tutorial by Todd Fahrner Beyond the FONT tag: Practical
HTML text styling

It's more coherent, convenient to request assistance for your webpage
problems and difficulties by minimizing inconvenience, tasks, directives
to follow, etc. directed at those you wish would assist you.
Generally speaking, if you want help, be helpful. If you want
assistance, be assistive to begin with.
If you want autonomy, self-independence, act autonomously, in a
self-independent manner, trying to learn on your own. Etc.
