Hi All
Has anyone come up with a consistent way of displaying HTMLdw in
different browsers.
In IE the dw displays exactly as it appears in PB, but NS exapands all
the columns to fit the data and creates large gaps between the rows.

Has anyone been able to work around these problems?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Rgds
Adam

We have been successful in making applications work in both IE and Netscape.
There are definite differences and design considerations that need to be
made up front. One of the biggest thing is that the generator does not
handle expressions well when generating the HTML for Netscape. Try to avoid
that.

Hi Larry,
>>We have been successful in making applications work in both IE and

You have said this in several threads yet I (and many others) are NOT
successful in getting Netscape to display a dw. Particularly a complex
freeform dw will not display in anyway that can be considered even
marginally acceptable. Are you using freeform dw's? Are they formatting
properly? If so, what is the secret?

Inquiring minds, want to know.....

Ken
