I have a little problem. My page looks like it is supposed to as long as the user has their text size set at medium under their view settings in their browser.
If they go to larger or largest my tables blow out.
test it.

How can I fix this to ensure my users are looking at an ugly website.

You could use CSS to ensure that the fonts are always displayed at a fixed size, regardless of their text size settings in the browser.

Well, if you want to make sure they ARE looking at an ugly website - leave it like it is! *lol

Just kidding. I didn't look at the code, but your links, and sportsman of the week tables are just fine at the larger sizes. Just adjust your Articles and Florida Area Fishing Reports the same way you have the other two.

Ok. I went ahead and played around with my css and figured out how to control the text and prevent it from scaling when the text size is changes in the users browser. I am still having trouble figuring this out.
My tables get blown out when my text has the paragraph option checked in the properties box. (I DESIGN IN DREAMWEAVER) As soon as I uncheck that paragraph box and put it to none the text doesnt blow out the tables anymore.
MY QUESTION: Is there a way to get that paragraph option to stop doing this?

If this doesnt make sense I will go into more depth.
Thanks in advance.
Doug
