    html tables and IE

    I'm trying to achieve a "rounded corners" illusion on my webpage, using 50x50 gifs that are aligned to the four corners. It's hard to explain, so just check it out at http://confuted.webhop.net/

    Here's the problem. It works fine with Mozilla, and all the images are where they should be - the corners. However, when I view the page in internet explorer, it aligns the images on the right hand side incorrectly. (I'm going to attach two small screen shots to show this.) Does it work for other people on IE? How can I fix it?

    Here's the source for the index page (created with Mozilla composer)

    Hmm. Odd, I'm running IE6 too. A lot of things have been going wrong with it though... the view source stopped working, and then show picture stopped working too.

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    I'm not completely sure, but there could be a slight difference in the different versions of IE6. Try downloading the newest service pack, it might work.

    The rounded corner thing is fairly new, and not standard HTML.

    I'm getting a little clipping on the corners under IE6 Win2k, but its fine under Mozilla Firebird.

    Btw, XSquared. Are you using a Mac? OS-X? is it good?

    It looks fine to me on IE5, IE6 and Opera7.
