Description

14 years ago
I recently downloaded FireFox and like the product in general.  I'm still
working through issues like certain ftp sites report Error 530 on connection
attempt.  

While looking at my website I noticed that table cells are a bit different. 
Attached is an example showing spacing added when viewed with FireFox.  However
if I view it with ie then the layout seems ok.  

The page was created with FrontPage and may need some additional editing to
avoid this but I didn't expect a different layout.

This site is...

I have also included a screen shot with ie.

These aren't showing padding in table cells, these indented items are a list
within a single cell. IE uses margin-left to indent lists, Mozilla uses
padding-left. The simplest thing in your case is to explicitly set padding-left
to 0px to make Mozilla mimic Frontpage's IE-centric layout.

Or you could put each link in its own table cell and not use a list for this.
