New Tableless renderer releases

Monday, December 4th, 2006

New releases of both HTML_QuickForm_Renderer_Tableless (0.4.3) and HTML_QuickForm_DHTMLRulesTableless (0.2.3) are available. The renderer had only a little stylesheet change to achieve layout compatibility with Windows Internet Explorer 7.
