I've searched through quite a few Netscape display posts, but can't find anything that might help me.

I am building a site that needs to be as compatible with as many browsers as possible. Thus I am using CSS to a limited extent (fonts and colours mainly), and a table for basic page layout.

The issue I have is at the bottom of each page I put a line of text links for the site for use if the graphic links do not show/or the user choose not to view them. This is a simple line of links in one table cell, with non-breaking spaces inbetween and the standard square brackets around each one. They are left aligned and the colour and size controlled by the CSS. In all browsers they display as desired, except Netscape 4.05 (the Netscape 4 that I test on) which breaks the links at the exact point of the </a> tag in the text.

I have tried removing the class attributes from the <a> tags, but that simply removes the font/colour, but the text is still broken on different lines.

Does anyone know of a particular bug where Netscape breaks the line after an <a> tag - or of any other reason why this may be?

Thanks

Could you post an example of the code you're using (we don't need all the links) please?

Very few people use Netscape 4.6/4.7 now, let alone 4.05, just develop for 4.6 and higher.

Are you putting a carriage return in your HTML code? If so, try to string everything out on one long line. It looks crappy in your source code, but it often helps NS in rendering. And I agree, at the very least, use 4.7 to test. 4.0 is positively ancient, while 4.7 is merely old and cranky. Cool
