probably in the same way people do rows. assign classes to <td>'s based on an odd or even iterator value (assuming you are doing it in a loop).

yeah I've attempted it...annnnd it just turns my columns into rows.hah. I'll mess around with my code a bit more I guess to achieve it.

If you're columns are turning themselves into rows, then it sounds like your table is being outputted incorrectly.

<script type="text/javascript">/*<![CDATA[*//*---->*//*--*//*]]>*/</script>
I keep seeing this in all the threads you reply and I'm confused. Could you explain what it's for?

I've never seen it like that, but I use something similar to tell the w3 validator to ignore my java script:<script type='text/javascript'>//<![CDATA[//]]></script>Without that, the w3 validator complains about < and > anywhere in the script, ie if (aVariable<anotherVariable) {

It's not necessarily wrong to have that there, that page is talking about doing that to "hide" the Javascript code from an XML parser if your page is served as XHTML or XML+HTML. There's another discussion about it here:http://javascript.about.com/library/blxhtml.htmIt's probably not necessary to include all of the extra comments around it though, several sites like that talk about doing that to support "older" web browsers, but the fact is that in these days no one uses a browser that doesn't understand what you're trying to do. Even IE6 should support a normal cdata tag, so it's probably not necessary to hide it with Javascript comments.
