    Default Windows Internet Explorer 8 will only render tables up to 1000 columns

    How do i get past this limitation in ie8. Microsoft confirms the limitation in the following sites:

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...=vs.85%29.aspx ]cols Property (TABLE, HTMLTableElement Constructor)

    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...=vs.85%29.aspx ]colSpan Property (TD, TH, HTMLTableCellElement Constructor)

    I saw this forum post, but i still could not solve the issue: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/For...-9c50fe2d443b/ ]ie 8 doesn't display table with large number of columns

    Can somebody edit this sample html to get a table larger than 1000 columns work in ie8 or at least confirm this is not possible:


    <html>
    <head>
    <title></title>
    <style type="text/css">
    td div
    {
    width:20px;
    height:20px;
    border:solid 1px Black;
    }
    </style>
    </head>
    <body id="doc">
    <table>
    <tr>
    <td><div></div></td>
    <!-- over a thousand columns -->
    </tr>

    </table>
    </body>
    </html>

    <!--ANOTHER EXAMPLE-->

    <html>
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
    <table>
    <tr>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
    <!-- over a thousand columns -->
    </tr>
    </table>
    </body>
    </html>

    Hi ,
    i don't know how a consumer can handle more than 1000 columns , i suggest you to have a tab control in your page

    Regards ,

    I just had the brilliant idea some month ago to start making a family chart as a table, and there is no problem to handle a table that ends up with more than 1000 columns. The problem is just that COLSPAN doesn't seem to work from 1001 and on. So now when I'm on the ninth generation table page when the ninth generation has passed 1000 columns, in the second row of the table the columns of the children of the original ancestor are configured to be COLSPAN=661, COLSPAN=201, COLSPAN=29, COLSPAN=2 and COLSPAN=248. This works fine. But now that the original ancestor in the first row is supposed to have COLSPAN=1141, that doesn't. COLSPAN=1000 makes his cell 1000 columns broad, COLSPAN=1001 and over just becomes equivalent to as if was COLSPAN=1. Brilliant that this would't work. :-(
