in thread How to iterate by fives?

In your HTML, you may need to put &nbsp; in the empty <td> elements in order for the blank space to be 'filled in' by the browser. YMMV.

This observation is based on purely anecdotal evidence; I hope it turns out to be more than just a brain-fart.

    You're right. Some browsers will not render a table cell if it has nothing in it. What I tend to do, rather than using a &nbsp;, is to put in a one-pixel, transparent image tag, so that if the cell wants to be narrower or shorter than the nbsp it can be.
