Hi Guys,

Please ignore my feebleness but im new to all this but i need drastic help.

I have designed a website in dreamweaver, no problem, all the links work, everything is as it should be except......

On my home page, i have various tables with images and buttons in which look great but when i view them in IE all the images and buttons seem to have moved all over the place. This especailally happens if i view the page on another computer with different screen resolution.
The page, in dreamweaver on 1024x768 is fine, looks fine when viewed in IE (F12) but if i open the page on another computer (1280x1024) its all over the shop !
This is also the case if i do a print preview....... the buttons and graphics are not alligned the same as when viewing them in dreamweaver.

Anyone please help, i know its probably someting stupid but im a novice and new to this :-)

thanks

Usually the cause is because you use a % in your width and height of the table settings, which macromedia dreamweaver automatically does. % will make the width and height change when you make the window smaller.

As you're at an early stage in your learning I strongly suggest you stop using the tables for design method right now and learn CSS. It will stand you in good stead.

CSS can look a little tricky when starting, but it makes life so much easier in the mid to long run.

Using % instead of harcoding the width of the images would be the solution.
