Uh... then please tell me how to let IE NOT make empty cells invisible. 
Whatever value I set the "empty-cell" property to, Mozilla abides by it 
but IE does not - only way to get IE to do what I want is to put e.g. a 
non-breaking space (&#160;) or <br /> in the table cell.

I don’t see at all how IE is better with CSS tables...
