Show Empty Table Cells with CSS in Internet Explorer

When you create a html table and apply a border using CSS, then the empty cells do not have a border. So you pull out your CSS book and find empty-cells:show; and think your problems are solved but empty-cells is unsupported in IE…go figure. But I have found a combination of styles that work. Try this…apply the border-collapse:collapse; and empty-cells: show; to the table level and IE will display borders around empty cells.


Firefox and integrated Windows Authenication

If you need Firefox to work with integrated Windows Authentication do this:

  1. Open Firefox and go to about:config
  2. In the filter type network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris or just scroll down until you find it.
  3. Double click that line and put in the name of the server you want to use windows auth. Ex: localhost, (multiple sites separated by commas)
  4. Click OK and restart Firefox

Yipee! Now you can uninstall IE! (just kidding)
