Table with 100% width relative to parent div

Postby Nathaniel » Wed Jul 19, 2006 8:11 am

A work-around for this has to be documented somewhere, but I have been googling for half an hour and I'm stuck. Basically, I have a table inside a div:

Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]






And then I have this CSS:
Syntax: [ Download ] [ Hide ]



        margin-left: 21em;

        margin-right: 9em;




        width: 100%;


I want the table to be 100% of the width of the div tag, not the browser window. In Firefox it's all well and dandy, but not in IE6. What do I do about it?

Try setting the width of the parent div.
