Re: Odd thing happens with HTML Tidy

I had a reply from John Carroll saying that he tried the page without a link
to my stylesheet and the problem disappeared.  Oddly, though, there's
nothing in the stylesheet that would cause this.  I've also pushed the CSS
through the w3 CSS Validator and it comes back clean.  (I also pushed my
page through the XHTML validator and that also came back clean.

I deleted the table from my page and the problem disappeared, but even if I
drop the table to 90% of the width, I still see this problem.  I can also
expand the page in the browser and again I still get the problem, so there
is no issue with line lengths or image sizes.  Finally, to reiterate the
original problem (and to justify my asking for help here, the page was fine
before I pushed it through HTML Tidy.  I don't know if it is something in
HTML Tidy or something in the XHTML DTD, but something has pushed my page
width out to about 105%...

If anyone can shed light on it I'd be grateful as it's bugging the hell out
of me...

Thanks,
Dirk
