Table numbers missing

Table numbers missing

A web page I have created with FrontPage 2003 contains a table of numbers. It is posted on a server. Using IE8 it looks fine but using Safari and FireFox browsers, the numbers are missing from the table. Has anyone seen this problem?


RE: Table numbers missing

Is there any scripting involved?  Firefox and Safari can't understand VBScript.  They can only understand Javascript.

RE: Table numbers missing

There is no VBScript, just Javascript. Since my first post I have discovered that IE9 also does not display the table contents. IE8 is the only browser that displays it correctly.

Try adding this to the header

RE: Table numbers missing

xwb: Thanks for your help. I have resolved the problem.

The missing numbers in the table are actually there but you can't see them because the font color is the same as the background color. When the table was created, no font color was specified and IE8 defaulted it to black which you can see. However, IE9 and FireFox default the font to the background color making the numbers disappear. After assigning a font color to the numbers, all browsers are displaying correctly.

RE: Table numbers missing

That fix I sent was to fix the leading space problem.  If you have leading spaces in the table text, sometimes, the cells disappear in IE9.
