  • User-244351536 posted

    I am trying to display the following HTML in IE6 mobile:

    <html>
    <body>
        <table border="0" width="100%">
            <tr>
                <td>
                    <font size="+1"><b>Column1</b></font></td>
                <td>
                    <font size="+1"><b>Column2</b></font></td>
                <td>
                    <font size="+1"><b>Column3</b></font></td>
                <td>
                    <font size="+1"><b>Column4</b></font></td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td colspan="5" bgcolor="#000000">
                </td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>
                    Row 1.1</td>
                <td>
                    Row 1.2</td>
                <td>
                    Row 1.3</td>
                <td>
                    Row 1.4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>
                    Row 2.1</td>
                <td>
                    Row 2.2</td>
                <td>
                    Row 2.3</td>
                <td>
                    Row 2.4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td>
                    Row 3.1</td>
                <td>
                    Row 3.2</td>
                <td>
                    Row 3.3</td>
                <td>
                    Row 3.4</td>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                <td colspan="5" bgcolor="#000000">
                </td>
            </tr>
        </table>
    </body>
    </html>

     In IE5 Mobile renders the html as the expected table, however IE6 is renders it like so:

    Column1
    Column2
    Column3
    Column4
    Row1.1
    Row1.2
    Row1.3
    Row1.4
    Row2.1
    Row2.2
    Row2.3
    Row2.4
    Row3.1
    Row3.2
    Row3.3
    Row3.4

    I have tried using multiple emulators and real devices for both IE5 and IE6 and the results are consistent. What do I need to do to get IE6 to render tables?

     Thanks!

    Hi mbertram@kimray.com,

    Pocket IE has three views:

    1. one column
    2. Fit to Screen
    3. Desktop

    We can click "menu"---"View" to change it. For your problem, please select "desktop"
