I'm using a table with two rows with backround colors for the design element, tho the table "above" the colored design rows is fixed beneath the colored rows in the opera browser. I don't want to merge the tables because it would put some the regular <td> elements against the left border. I guess I could format empty cells to avoid that..
Also, in opera, i don't understand why some tables appear at the top of the page when they're written after other tables so that they should be at the bottom, as they are in firefox, ie, and safari. How can I correct this problem so my pages look right in opera? thanks :-)
