table header color to stretch right through table


Recommended Posts



I have the following code:


<tr style="color:#ffffff; text-indent:20px; background-color: #003A62; ;margin-right: -600px;"> <th width="55%" align="left">Tickets - <strong>TO BE CLOSED</strong></th> <th width="15%" align="left">Project</th> <th width="15%" align="left">Result</th> <th width="15%" align="left">Inactive</th> </tr>


I need the table header color to stretch right through the table without the white at the sides (see image 1)


I have tried CSS to do this, but I think it has more to do with the HTML.


Please help?


Thank you.

Could be to do with borders, cellspacing, cellpadding usually applied to table


<table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0">

as even though you may not applied these, they will still have a default value.



table {border-spacing:0; /*set table cellspacing to 0;*/  border-spacing: expression(cellSpacing=0); /*for older IE versions*/ padding:0; /* set table cellpadding */ border: 0; /* set table border*/}
