I'm interested in using the fascinating CSS available at|
which allows one to present tabular data in a way that's more appealing to the eye (at least to my eye it's more appealing :^)
To my mind this is very much what CSS is all about: allowing content providers to present properly coded data in a way they and, ideally, their readers, find inviting and accessible. Unfortunatley, the CSS doesn't work in IE. I figured the easiest way to fix the situation would
be to call on IE7:
Unfortunately, the markup/css chokes IE7. I contacted the IE7 forum on SourceForge.net and received the following response:
"i've looked at this site before. i'm afraid there is no way to get this to work in IE without rewriting the HTML. IE will always render a table as a table..."
"IE uses "display: block" for the various table components. As this is what the "overridding CSS" uses, IE sees no difference and does nothing, whereas this is a huge difference for modern browsers and they change their rendering accordingly."
Has anyone in this group ever been successful in making IE render a table as anything other than a traditional table? Any hints as to what might allow such a thing to happen?
