    Unanswered: Dynamic combo box causing alignment problems?

    I have a web page generating the elements of jump menu dynamically from a database like so


    //<form ...>
    //<select ...>Expertise</select>
    //<%while statement generating Responses of <select>whatever</select> for the whole list of menu items%>
    //</form>

    all within the cell of a table

    When the page is loaded (regardless of browser), the combo box thus generated makes the cell twice the combo box's height and aligns itself with the top of the cell no matter what the valign settings are. All attempts to peg the cell size with width and height have failed. What could be causing this? Thx

    It will most likely by the </form> tag. Try putting this after you close the cell.

    That seems to have done it. Thanks. BTW, is it necessary to close <td> tags?

    Depends on the client browser really... but it's always a good idea to close them
