Hi all,

I think it is a small problem, I have placed a table in my site which when I ahve put php script to be able to update by an admin area, however if you write too much text it keeps expanding over the image below. Instead of the image also in a table moving down the page accordingly.
So I end up having the image behind all the text.

I am sure it will be a simple button I am missing but please help.

Thanks

Hya,

Take a look at your code. dreamweaver puts in '&nbsp' by default to prop the cells open. they also are put there to stop the table collapsing. the character also gives each cell dimensionality in both the horizontal and the vertical.

Dreamweaver does not add more than one space when using the space bar. Using the keyboard space bar for multiple blank spaces is ignored. Browsers will display a single space, but ignore any additional spaces that follow it. To reflect this Dreamweaver's default preferences does not let a user insert more than one space at a time.

Solution:

Change the default preferences.
Choose Edit > Preferences… > General > Editing Options: Allow Multiple Consecutive Spaces.

This option is only availble in Dreamweaver MX not earlier versions.

This could, or could not be your problem.

:)
