If you go to my site (linked in signature), click on the music section, does
it load with the
information under 'More information' for each track expanded or collapsed?
It should be collapsed, but it's expanded when I load it from the server on
my PC (if I load the page from the HD, it's collapsed), and my friend says
it's collapsed when he loads the page... but something's making it load
expanded on my PC (if I load the page from the HD< however, they are
collapsed). I am using IE 6.
Other questions:
How do I get the 'Time... Size... .Download' parts to line up with each
other without having a seperate table for each track?

Any comments on this design as well are welcome. Thanks to rf for his
extensive help.

For some people they display collapsed, but for others, like myself and a
few others I've spoken to, they load expanded (but the script still works),
and I was wondering if anyone could help with sorting that out.
And as for aligning, they look aligned but they're not, I'd much rather have
a table like function that gets them exactly in line, rather than using
manual spaces to align them... if anyone could help with that (for some
reason I can't seem to insert a table next to the 'More Information' text,
it always comes on the line below which I don't want). TIA.

If they "look" aligned, how would your visitor tell they weren't?
Especially since alignment is visual.

Cause he's using &nbsp;, any change in font settings will change
the alignment. Plus it isn't very nice markup using &nbsp;'s.

I hardly have enough time to change the fonts on my own pages let
alone on someone elses....

Some people have their browsers set to use a font they like.
Besides, I think it calls for a table anyway, no need for
&nbsp;'s at all. It's tabular data, or at least I like to think
so.

Nope. If he has managed to [roughly] align them with &nbsp;s on *his* system
then any change in font size will not have a large effect. Each glyph will
expand and contract proportionally leaving the "columns" roughly aligned.
There will be a small shift as the font rastifier rounds to the nearest
pixel but that won't really be noticable. More noticable would be the fact
that one can not align columns using spaces to start with (spaces being n
pixels wide), unless one is using a monospaced font.

A change of font *face* will cause dramatic effects.

> Plus it isn't very nice markup using &nbsp;'s.


True.

True, that's why I used the words 'font settings' and not
font-size. I should not have said 'any change' though, as this
could possibly mean just the size

Is there an alternative to &nbsp?
I tried to put a table in for each track, but I can only ever get it to
display on the line below 'more information', not alongside it (to get the
equivalent visual effect to the way it is now).
