hi, I found some strange bug (?) in firefox 1.0 try to open following page <html> <body> <table><tr><td> </td></tr></table> </body> </html> IE shows the dot there! In firefox it will work only if you will remove a line break before the dot. The dot sign has hex# 07. br, Alexey Smirnov
sorry, it will work only if you remove the line break AFTER the dot.
No, hex 07 is not a dot, it's the unprintable BEL character, which rang the bell on teletypes back around the dawn of time. The only things below 20 that you can use with at all predictable results are tab and newlines: anything else, no matter what it might look like on your system, probably won't look like that on another system. This bug report on the computer I'm on now shows a dot in both Firefox and IE, but two others I tried earlier today, both with the same OS and browser versions, both showed the "undisplayable character" empty box instead. That's not a usable character, no matter what elements or newlines you put around it.
