Subject Re: panelNavigation bug in Firefox 2.0 RC3
Date Tue, 24 Oct 2006 20:31:49 GMT
this same problem (of needing nbsp to display empty table cells) occurred
back in the days of Netscape 4.7.
It would suck if they've regressed back to that.
Back then, we had to solve this by having a special ResponseWriter.
The special ResponseWriter would detect if a <TD> was followed by a </TD>
with no intervening non-whitespace character, and
automatically insert an NBSP for netscape.
