    Re: CSS...formatting...insanity....

    OK, modification. (need sleep...)

    I managed to solve part of the problem by specifying the height attribute for the table row that was troubling me. So now, all appears aligned properly. But....

    In Firefox, the horizontal nav links still appear left-aligned and visited links are the fuschia color that should not be the default after visiting. Again, all appears well in IE, but I'm missing something here. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    CSS...formatting...insanity....

    I'm losing my mind over this one. I know I'm missing something completely obvious here.

    The page in question is at http://rhodes.globat.com/~broge.com/. If you view this you will see that the body text and the left side navigation bar are both in the wrong place - I cannot seem to get them to align at the top of the table cells. It seems that there is an extra table row or something forcing everything down one row...and then the alignment is off. My eyes and brain are both glazed over trying to suss this one out.

    Another brain buster is why it renders differently in Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. The links in the nav bars should remain black and the same point size whether they are visited or not, appearing blue only on hovering on the link. In IE, the top nav bar works as it should. The left side nav bar doesn't. The top navbar should also be center aligned, but is not in Mozilla. It works properly in IE.

    Firefox is either more stringent in applying CSS rules or just not respecting them. I'm trying to rely almost exclusively on CSS for formatting and it's wonderful that IE renders it almost perfect...but I prefer Firefox. Plus, I am a strong believer in cross-platform compatibility. It needs to work in all major browsers.

    I've attached the style sheet and page source in a ZIP file for anyone who's interested in taking a look. I've spent a few days on this and come close to an answer, but it's still eluding me.
