    Question A problem with tables

    Hello!

    Can somebody tell me what I'm doing wrong? I'm setting up a table, and each row within the table is a separate table. However, I don't want to have the big space between each row that I'm getting stuck with. How do I avoid that?

    The site is here:

    Thanks a lot!

    Hi alwphan, welcome to the forums

    I would eliminate the nested tables and just use colspan attributes to render the varying amount of cells per row.

    I tried that, but was unable to make it work - if you can suggest any remedies for this instead, I'd be just as happy.

    Start with the TABLE ...s defining the images, first - getting them to line up before surrounding them with more <TABLE ...>s containing the backgrounds and spacing.

    Move the WIDTH= and HEIGHT= attributes inside the <IMG SRC=...> tag and eliminate them from the <TD>s and <TABLE ...>s. Make the BORDER=1 inside the <TABLE ...>s until you get it sized right, possible adding blank <TD>& nbsp ; cells to provide spacing.

    It normally takes me around 1/2 hour playing with things like this to get it all right without the images having to line up next to each other.

    Thank you for the suggestions!

    I was able to get it - had to re-cut a few images, but it's working now, so that's all that matters!
