if you highlight the cell which your button is in then align the contents of this cell to TOP

I am guessing that you have it aligned to middle and as you add text the table is expanding which changes the location of the button

ok

you have a table on your page

if you highlight a cell (box within the table) then look at the properties (panel in dreamweaver at the bottom of your screen) you should see the options Horz and Vert
change the vert to Top

i would upload an image to help but we are having trouble with this upload function

PM me your email address and i will send the image
