View Full Version : help needed with moving tables

12-21-2005, 02:58 PM
Hi all, new to this forum, Can anyone help PLEASE because I am cracking up.
I`m working on a site at the moment, I have centered the all the main tables in Dreamweaver ( I`m not much of a coder ) When I preview in IE they don`t move, great. But when I preview in FireFox two of the pages move slightly to the right (About and Contact pages)
In the layout view when I press F4 to hide all the toolbars and look at the ruler, it tells me the two offending pages are shifting about 6 pixels to the right even though I select the center option.
Yes all the tables are the same size?????????????????

You do know that FF by default has a margin of 10px didn't you.
To remove that use a css file with this in it:

body {
margin: 0;

The body margin tags will not work with FF.
What I mean here is this:

<body leftmargin="0">

you have to use the CSS method.

CI, I didn't know that either! It could explain a few things! Thank you.

All browsers have default margin, this simple css snippet takes care of all of the browsers:
body {margin: 0; padding: 0;}

If you guys want to know more about the workings of FireFox (which is why I like it.. being a fan of opensource and non lock applications) if you enter into the url text field (where you type a web address) about:config it will show the workings of FF. But if you do not understand what you are looking at don't mess with things.
