We are going for a hybrid css layout for our latest project... and we have a
problem...

For those who don'e know... we are using tables but controlling every aspect
of those with css... which allows us to still support NS4.7 and non Dom
browsers but have the simplicity and control of CS for the modern
browsers... go read Zeldman...

Anyways... one of the things that Zeldman suggests is that instead of having
one big table... you split them into logical tables.... like a navigation
table, a content table and a footer table... this way you can give them id's
and stuff....

However we have encountered a problem that (prolly) because we are using
XHTML (although I am not sure) unstead of the tables stacking underneath
each other as they normally do... they are sitting side by side...

we initially solved this by putting br's but the problem with that is if
the user changes thier font size... the table jumps around like a... err
whatever...

so we created a new css class 'mastheadBreaker' and put a dive in there to
re align the tables...

but now this don't work in NS4.7...

check this out in IE and then in NS4.7

CSS breaker... www.edwalker.com/breaker/cssbreaker.htm
br's www.edwalker.com/breaker/noncssbreaker.htm

anyone know what we can do about this???

we are stuck... where we want it to work in both new and old
browsers....
