actually, I gave up. I can't waste any more time on this, I will just live with the little overlap. I spent a whole weekend digging into this...built my own version of the extension from scratch with the newest ckeditor(replacement for fckeditor). It was pretty funny actually...because when I was done...I fired it up and low and behold, the overlap was gone ! BUT, now it was cut off on the right hand side a little, and the new ckeditor doesn't have all the bells and whistles (for tables) as the older version did. Maybe I just didn't have it configured right though....it lacked the background color, and cell properties... So I just decided to live and let live !
Thanks to all who attempted to fix this but I think Microsoft is to blame for inventing IE6,7,& 8.....who knows...maybe windows 7 will fix all their issues !! HA
Actually, that brings up a question....are Webassist products going to work on 7? I was planning on wiping out 1 of my computers on the 22nd to see if 7 will cure my hatred for vista or if I am switching over to a mac for good
