Problem with tables in IE vs. Firefox

    I have been playing with this in a page and I can't seem to figure out
    what I'm doing wrong. I was able to get the top to work correctly, but
    for some reason the bottom just doesn't work. Also, it doesn't look
    quite right when transferred out of the over all page because there is
    an extra border, but the main problem is that in IE, there is a large
    line across the bottom of the entire table that I can't seem to get rid
    of. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    <table width='100%' cellspacing=0 cellpading=0 border=0>
    <TR height=5>
    <TD width=922 bgColor="#000000" colSpan=2 height=5><U><IMG height=5
    alt="" src="http://mranderson.dyndns.org/images/spacer.gif" width=1
    border=0></U></TD>
    </TR>
    <TR>
    <TD vAlign='bottom' width='50%' bgColor="#808080" height=25
    align=left>
    <table width='100%' cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 border=0>
    <tr>
    <td align=left valign=bottom>
    <IMG height=25 alt=""
    src="http://mranderson.dyndns.org/images/lc_news_b.gif" width=15
    border=0>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </TD>
    <TD vAlign='bottom' width='50%' bgColor="#808080" height=25
    align=right>
    <table width='100%' cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 border=0>
    <tr>
    <td align=right valign=bottom>
    <IMG height=25 alt=""
    src="http://mranderson.dyndns.org/images/rc_news_b.gif" width=15
    border=0>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </TD>
    </TR>
    </table>

    Post a test case URL. The code fragment you offered is useless.

    Very primitive coding style.
    - Use of tables for layout
    - Use of "tag soup" instead of CSS. (Classes were indicated but no CSS
    file was specified.)
    - Use of tables + tag soup to replace the markup already available in HTML.
    - Spacer GIFs !?!

    Just running the code through HTML-tidy <http://tidy.sourceforge.net>
    was enough to clear the problem; the head section had a missing required
    <title>. Adding a DTD (doctype) was a bonus.
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
