in thread CGI tables *runs*

One thing which has helped me when working with tables in CGI is start_table and end_table. This might have helped you pick up the problem with quotes which particle has pointed out.

use CGI qw(:standard start_table end_table); print start_table; print Tr(td({-height=>'10', width=>'700', bgcolor=>'#BBCCEE'},h5('hi') +)); print Tr(td({-height=>'10', width=>'700', bgcolor=>'#BBCCEE'},"")); print end_table;

    Nope, that wasn't the problem. When I remove the quotes the text changes but the table get's shifted as well, it makes the TD twice the size when the h5 works.
      And that is an HTML problem ... it's what happens when you stick a heading inside of a table cell. Besides, it is not wise to try and control cell heights ... the height attribute for <td> tags is deprecated (reference). You really should start using Cascading Style Sheets if you need that kind of control (and most of the time ... you really don't).
