Internet Explorer not interpreting table code correctly

Internet Explorer not interpreting table code correctly

Internet Explorer not interpreting table code correctly

I have a website (www.bcfohio.org). All the information is in a table that is 800 px wide. In google, it looks great. In internet explorer, the table code is there, but not being used. Can someone give some ideas? Thanks!

RE: Internet Explorer not interpreting table code correctly

It only seems to be a problem on IE8.  Looks OK on IE6.  What you could try is taking out the content of each cell and just leaving the table layout.

If that works, then put in the content of one cell at a time.  When the layout suddenly goes weird, you've found the cell that is causing all the problems.

Looks like the problem may be in the cell just before announcements.  There is no closing </p> to the paragraph and no closing </font> to the fonts.  Just make sure that all the tags are terminated correctly.  I think IE8 is a bit more fussy.

RE: Internet Explorer not interpreting table code correctly

Did you try removing the outer 800 px table?... why do you have a 800px table inside a 800px table?


<table border="0" width="800" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" id="table1">
        <td colspan="3">

<table border="0" width="800" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" id="table3">
