you're going to have to provide more info that that. What do you want it
to do, and what is it doing now that you don't like?

perhaps you should give a width percentage for your tables, instead of one set pixel width

I had a problem with the horizontal autostretch onetime. I took out the lines

Code: [ Select ]
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
  1. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
  2. "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">


After that it stretched just right instead of extending beyond the content.

The alignment of the tables I take it you mean....

Just a question, When you people use tables, do you all Squish them in in abundance then just delete what you dont need?

Actually it stretched just wrong, have a look see what this does in a proper browser :wink: Removing the doctype is the easiest way to lose browser compatibility, because IE6 displays everything quirkily when you do this.

Never. That generally is more trouble than its worth. The more tables you have in there, when you try to insert and image or code, it may not display right because of the other tables or cells in the way. I agree that you should use set pixel width for your tables and cells. for instance if your table width is 750 pixels, you would divide the cells width whitihin that space limit. Such as the cell with the navigation in it would be 50 pixels wide, with the content cell 700. It takes some time to get it all straight, but its worth it when you figure it out. Take a look at the code on this site that I am working on. It may give you some hints: http://www.playersnmotion.com/main

Also put the Doctype back in there as rtm suggested. It will only mess it up in the long run.

//edit: and to add to the the orignal answer, do your tables one at a time. You have more control that way and you can make sure all the content is going in properly.
