Blank Space above Tables

Postby mrchad9 » Fri Sep 13, 2013 7:12 pm

Anyone have any ideas as to why there is about 8 rows of blank space above both of the tables in this article?

http://www.summitpost.org/packing-light ... nes/866824

It is using the exact same code I have always used for these tables (as far as I can tell). Never had an issue before.

Here is the code for the first table:

Code: Select all
<table align="center" border="1" bordercolor="#FFFFFF" BGCOLOR="#DDDDDD" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0" width=90%><tr BGCOLOR="#444444"><th><font color="#FFFFFF">Item</font></th><th><font color="#FFFFFF">Weight</font></th><th><font color="#FFFFFF">Comments</font></th></tr>
<tr><td><b>Sun hat</b></td><td>2 ounces</td><td></td></tr>
<tr><td><b>Warm hat</b></td><td>2 ounces</td><td>Always bring this, excellent warmth for the weight</td></tr>
<tr><td><b>Neck gaiter</b></td><td>1.5 ounces</td><td>Also weighs only a little but can add a ton of warmth either on the move or when sleeping</td></tr>
<tr><td><b>Lightweight gloves</b></td><td>2 ounces</td><td>Often optional</td></tr>
<tr><td><b>Spare socks</b></td><td>2 ounces</td><td>I usually bring one extra pair, and often wear both when I am sleeping</td></tr>
<tr><td><b>Towel</b></td><td>0.7 ounces</td><td>OK this is extraneous, but I often take a washcloth sized towel (nothing larger).  Tiny but still good enough for after a dip in a cold lake or for wiping condensation or frost off the tent.</td></tr>
<tr><td><b>Thermal bottoms</b></td><td>5 ounces</td><td>Good in the morning/evenings and generally I wear them in the sleeping bag.</td></tr>
<tr><td><b>Top base layer</b></td><td>11 ounces</td><td>Just recently I shaved another 5 ounces off my switching from two lightweight layers to a single midweight layer.</td></tr>
<tr><td><b>Down sweater</b></td><td>12 ounces</td><td>I have a Patagonia Down Sweater for my main layer, and if colder than normal I might bring either an additional base layer top or a Mountain Hardwear Ghost Whisperer down jacket as well.</td></tr>
<tr><td><b>Hardshell jacket</b></td><td>13 ounces</td><td>I use a Marmot PreCip Rain Jacket (after using a softshell for years). When going light, use a hardshell, always lighter and more compact.  If the weather warrants this can frequently be skipped altogether for large weight savings, or use a lighter option.</td></tr></table>

Ahhhh!

Matt has found a way to force me into using the new editor!

EDIT: I was reluctant at first. I wasn't sure how easy it'd be to go back and manipulate the tables if I needed. Looks like no issues!

The new editor has some issues especially with layout and line spaces. I can see everything the way I want but once I hit the button to submit the page everything gets screwed up. It takes several fixes to finally get what I want. I tried to use the editor in both views (including HTML) as well as pasting my code (or combination of all of the above). This editor makes too many guesses but in fact its logic in design is very pure. I would like to have at least the real preview version that I would be able to fix before submitting the final version. One may only hope that after a few years it may be improved like DreamWeaver which sucked at the beginning for quite a long time.

I usually don’t complain and try to work around on my own but I believe such an editor is supposed to speed up the work, not to slow it down and frustrate the user, even if it’s free for the user. Well there is more and more crap in digital world.
