HELP! IE6 problems with preformatted text in table

When viewing my web page in IE6, all preformatted text in my table is centered--should be inline left. Looks normal in Firefox. When I cut and paste the the same HTML code into a text file and open it in IE6 from my hard drive, it appears normal.

I read through some other posts with similar problems and did as suggested by cutting and pasting code into text editor, deleting the html widget and adding a new widget. Same result.

The site is: http://cm-design.synthasite.com/resum...

Would greatly appreciate some help.

Very cool way to get your resume out there....On your contact page maybe add a free Wufoo form...Being able to interact right from your site would be a nice touch.....If I was still in the manufacturing sector and hiring people I would be impressed enough to contact you.Hope you don't mind my suggestion...BTW...Site looks great on Firefox and Chrome....IE7 is doing same as you say in IE6

Thanks for the feedback John. I was hoping that IE7 would display correct--don't use it, so didn't know.

Thanks again.

Chris.

Hi Chris

I think the problem is as a result of the center tag which surrounds your the table you are using to display your resume.

I have edited your html a little, and seem to have got it working correctly in IE.

Here is how I would suggest you fix it:

1.) Drop a text widget onto your page
2.) In a new window/tab, go to: http://toast38coza.synthasite.com/tes...
3.) Select the table on that page and copy (ctrl c).
4.) Then simply paste that into the text widget on your page

That should work accross IE as well as FireFox.

You can remove the table from you site now.
