I hang with a curious problem on a website I’m currently about to create, see this screenshot at TOBIAS EICHNER IT + CONSULTING - Information Technology Is Our Universe ! :
Note the grey “S” shape that surrounds the content of the page; this should reflect the logo of the company.
It was simply realized by creating a table with four columns, adjusting their width and background color.
Now this site should get done (with over 20 pages planned). But the client does not like the “spaces” between the table elements.
When I now set cell padding and cell spacing to 0, I get the desired look, but it also destroys me the rest of the table (the spacing between the two text columns is intended, for example).
So I gave it also a try creating a table in a table, which works fairly, but it seems not quite the most professional way.
Therefore I wonder if someone of you has an idea how to solve this more elegant thus compatible to common webbrowsers. Maybe there is a trick with combined image boxes, but when I gave this a try, it looks either great in one browser, but not in the other. Anyway, if all fails, I have to go with tables-in-tables, but it’s not the solution I find elegant.
