    Hello All,
    Has anyone over come the obstacle of having an image cut up so only part of it is animated in Flash & the rest is static... then tried to put it back together in a table without gaps.... IE renders this perfectly but Netscape adds a white space...

    If you have the answer it will be much appreciated ..

    Thanx in advance

    I've never encountered that problem before but I suspect it might have something to do with your HTML file. Did you use border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" in your table tag? Did you remember to td align your objects? Also did you remember to hspace="0" all your images and embedded swf file? Perhaps posting your html here would help us answer your question.

    Mark,
    This is a cool little quirk in Netscape that I have noticed both on the PC and now the Mac. Netscape appears to be sensitive to the contents between the <td></td> tags. I noticed that you have something like
    <td>stuff
    stuff
    stuff</td>
    See how stuff is indented. If it is indented using spaces netscape picks this up and uses a single space which causes the whitespaces in your display. Try something like

    <td>stuffstuffstuff</td>
    or
    <td>
    stuff
    stuff
    stuff</td>

    Hope this helps. You may need to experiment a little.

    Yes, as Amanda said, Netscape interprets your coding (which is really wierd) by the way you 'type' it and 'indent' it.

    I have experienced that with 'brake line' tags .. it makes a difference if you set them at the very end of your line, or in a separate line after it.

    I think this comes from the old times when images were used to be set with text around, so Netscape forces a space gap after the image.

    As amanda said, you'll have to experiment some further on ...
