    I'm using Internet Explorer on a PC as I'm on vacation and don't have access to a Mac at the moment. Anyways, it's displaying a new page design I made all weird and I can't for the life of me figure out why.

    This page and this page are diplaying the thread icon and replies/views columns correctly - as in as small of a width as possible. But this page and this page are displaying the columns too wide for some reason.

    The code for the pages is exactly the same since they're generated dynamically by phpBB 2. I've been trying to remove all CSS so that they display correctly in older browsers.

    Any ideas?

    Well, my first reply was in Safari. Duh.

    Yes, in IE6, they are wider. Looking more closely now...

    In some table cells, you have nowrap="nowrap" and in others you have NOWRAP.

    In the middle row of the table, there does not appear to be a proper close to the opening <td> tag. The <span> jumps right in.

    Code:
    <td bgcolor="#CCCC99" class="row1" align="left" valign="middle"
    
    <span class="topictitle">
    <a href="viewtopic.php?t=123&sid=aaebaca92e765644fa07388cf28ebc14" class="topictitle">
    <b>Welcome!  A Message from Dan</b>
    </a>
    
    </span>
    <span class="gensmall">
    <br />
