I am a newbie to both the list and advanced CSS...I am familiar with the
basics of CSS but am trying to incorporate what (to me anyway) is a very
complex CSS feature and am having a slight problem or two with it.
Basically, I am trying to use the scrolling table style that Terence
Ordona (sp?) put together (which is just awesome!) and have hit a couple of
snags. Originally, I was trying to use the fixed column (Big 4?) version
and after pulling out a lot of hair, switched to the Big 3 version...which
is working for the most part. Here is the page (look at the bottom):
When looking at it in IE, it is a work of art...everything lines up and
functions beautifully. However, Firefox gets weird in a couple of ways.
First, when loading the page in FF, the table sprawls to the right and half
of it is off the screen. The only thing I have been able to do to deal with
it is change the page style from basic to none then back to basic
again...which fixes the problem. So, first question: what the heck causes
this and how do I fix it?
The second problem is with the last column on my header in FF. It is
labeled 438. I cannot figure out how to get the padding setup correctly so
that it is the same 17px width as the rest.
Finally, the last column of the scrollable area is, for lack of a better
word, fat. Every one of the DYS columns should be 17px wide...is there
something I am doing wrong here??
My overall CSS sheet is at
I really appreciate any help anyone can give me...I have been working on
this for over a two weeks, trying to fix it on my own without any luck.
